I don’t know if it’s just me, but I find a lot of the advertisements on television rather disturbing these days.
I find all advertisements irritating, but there seems to be a fashion nowadays to treat all adults as if they had the mentality of a five year old.
Cartoons are for children? Right? So why do the insist on trying to sell their shite to adults using cartoons? I am sick of furry little animals and strange characters prancing around silently on my screen.
There is one advertisement that I find particularly disturbing. I think it’s for some fucking fabric conditioner or other, but they have these nauseating little rag dolls poncing around the screen. Am I supposed to be impressed? I can tell you here and now that I’m not. I’m nauseated.
Then there is that revolting nodding fucking dog, Churchill. Oh, how I would love to ram a ten foot pole wrapped in razor wire up his condescending arse. That would wipe the fucking smirk off his face.
Another one that I find deeply disturbing is that one with the characters with the long noses. I don’t know why, but I get the feeling I’m witnessing someone’s nightmare in glorious technicolour.
Of course none of these advertisements would be possible if the advertising industry didn’t have computers.
I wish we could go back to the good old pre-computer days, when cartoons had to be hand-drawn
