More about commercials

Perhaps everybody can agree on this: If you are a local, and you are making a commerical, don’t put your kids in it. You are the only person who thinks they are so cute they demand screen time and our attention as an audience. Lately, it seems like every third commercial on New Orleans’ television features inarticulate moppets confusedly testifying as to the value of their parents’ wares. You know who I don’t trust when I am making a purchasing decision concerning cars, fine dining, or expensive electronics? A 6-year-old.

I’d stop watching television, but I just can’t get enough of Judge Joe Brown.

    If you cant beat em. Start a new thread, eh?

    I’m with you on this one Max. On the one hand you have to see the proprietor putting his kids in a commercial as, well he paid for it, so he can do what he wants. On the other hand, you feel like, we don’t care if you think you have a cute kid, how much is this coffee table gonna cost me.

    The whole kid thing in general is out of control, all the commercials using computers to show infants talking like adults is getting to me. (Dont get me started on talking pets.) The masses just love em though. My girlfriend explains this as the application of the “Full House Theory”.

    Ponder how a extremely crappy show like Full House could anchor the TGIF lineup on ABC for so many years and remain a hit show, and keep running in syndication years after. It is beyond comprehension. The Full House Theory can apply to other crappy shows such as America’s Funniest Home Videos that just simply have never been all that funny. Bob Saget notwithstanding or course.

    People are dumb she says. Yet she gives a hearty laugh everytime she sees the most recent Quizno’s commercial featuring a large jowled baby boy talking about a new chicken/bacon sandwich like its a piece of ass. H-Y-P-O-C-R-I-T-E!

    Full House Theory. Gotta love it!

    Quiznos needs to bring back those freaky Spongemonkeys who sang about the pepper bar. Disturbing, but effective. I now know they have a pepper bar.
