So I’m sitting here, as we speak, enjoying my morning dose of The Price is Right. It’s helping me get ready for the day and putting a smile on my face.
PLEASE HOLD KEVIN IS ABOUT TO PLAY PLINKO!! THEY NEVER PLAY PLINKO! 3 CHIPS. $100, then $1,000 and yes, yes, now KEVIN WON $10,000!!!
OK, so anyway, right after Jeffery DIDN’T win a Jeep, the show, as it is wont to do, went to commercial. And this commercial came on:
WHO THOUGHT THIS WAS A GOOD IDEA? Some sixties throwback creeper? Honestly, I have written my share of odd and some might even say ill conceived comercials. But I have never committed the heinous crime of putting a hemp headband on a baby.
In the commercial the baby hippies are even protesting! They have little signs that say, “No more leaky diapers!” The babies are crowd surfing and swaying to music.
Now I’m not some huge perv, but of course with all this Woodstock hoopla the next association is that the baby hippies are romping around dropping acid and sharing their infant bodies with each other. Yes, I know that’s horrid but SO IS THAT COMMERCIAL.
I think the only thing worse than this commercial is the fact that it’s been playing for MONTHS now, which would suggest that it has received positive feedback and wasn’t lynched by the masses, as it should have been weeks ago.
I think sometimes we let commercials float over us without stopping to say, NO, THAT’S JUST WRONG. And I wanted to be sure that you all knew, how wrong I think that commercial is.
THANKFULLY I still have a few more pricing games and a showcase showdown to erase the image of babies sharing sexually transmitted diseases.
Kimberly is putting for a car now.
