You can’t get away from commercials at the movies and this is no exception.
This is the stupidest commercial I ever saw. And that is saying a lot because I have seen way too much tv in my life. I am not sure what the premise is or who the target audience is. Watch the commercial and we’ll discuss later.
These are the dumbest kids in the world. The pizza rolls are RIGHT IN FRONT OF THEM. I have to believe that the ad is targeted to parents, parents who think their kids are too stupid to tie their own shoes. Did these kids ride the little bus home? Is their underwear labeled “this side front”? And I hope you caught that the one on the left put the cell phone in the freezer. Every time I see that ad I want to smack those kids. (Especially the one on the right whose facial expressions seem to range from “wood” to “stone.”) Is that harsh? No, it is not harsh enough. Let’s follow this to the logical conclusion. They can’t see the package in front of them (either that or they can’t read), they leave the phone in the freezer, yet we are supposed to believe they can use the microwave without it blowing up? Not me, I call shenanigans on this dopey ad.
And for the record, pizza rolls come out wet and mushy from the microwave.
