Some commercials are fun and entertaining, but for the most part I just skip to another channel while a commercial is on. Yep, I can watch more than one television program at a time and avoid taping them.
Back to the subject of commercials, there is one type of commercial that is irritating the heck out of me. When the first one came out with the kid telling the older man how younger kids had it good compared to the kid talking to the elderly guy, and the guy answering, "Uh hum, I've been telling you." That one I thought was rather cute.
The ones I don't like and the ones I find condescending are the ones with kids ten years or younger telling even younger kids how good they've got it. Well, all those kids a year or two older have it good and they should stop acting like they don't. Give me a break with these stupid commercials. None of these kids are old enough to have missed out on anything yet.
The people making these commercials are alienating the largest part of the population. These kids aren't buying your products; their parents and grandparents are, and you could be setting against them against you.
Are there any commercials that irritate you? I'm eager to hear what you think about commercials.
Have a great week, and I'll see you next Sunday.
