So lately, I've noticed an abundance of stupidity on television (more than the normal teenage show stupidity). Ads have begun to get more and more ridiculous as time passes. Here are two of my favorite new commercial phrases. (ACTUAL QUOTES from commercials that run on TV DAILY)
EAT ALL YOU WANT AND STILL LOSE WEIGHT...AND WE COULDN'T SAY IT ON TV IF IT WASN'T TRUE!!!
(Really? There's absolutely NO lying on TV, huh? I missed that announcement.)
This line appears in a toilet paper commercial in which an ACTUAL PUPPY is running along strips of toilet paper and judging their softness and strength:
Puppy fantasy. Not a demo.
First off, do we really KNOW what a puppy fantasy consists of? Do we think SO LITTLE of man's best friend as to think his fantasies are about running along strips of toilet paper? Secondly, have Americans (and such groups as PETA) gotten SO out of hand that we have to explain to people that this REAL PUPPY isn't ACTUALLY running along toilet paper? Really?!?
