yippee the potty!

Ok I have something to confess.

Advertisements are lame

It is not time to get real about what happens in the bathroom. I don’t care what the quilted northern commercials tell you. Or the dancing tampon ladies. Stop dancing no one believes you.

Unless you are a boy under 18 no one wants to hear you talking about the bathroom. I promise. Why do commercials feel like they need to make it into some happy, beautiful, glowing experience. Really? Most people get into the bathroom and go damn I need to clean this mess of a room up. Not yippee the potty!

Advertisers get real with us. Just talk about your product. Showing me big brown bears using your product out in the woods is not cute, not real, and makes me wonder if you even know what your product is used for.

But the worst part about it is the people that are fooled by these stories and they really  believe diet pills will make them into a Kardashian. smh.

  1. I’ve been out of the USA for a couple years and forget about the constant exposure to advertising like that, unless I’m on vacation back home. I think most people don’t care or haven’t learned to think critically about the media they’re exposed too. It’s sad when I think about how people are suckered into spending money on things they don’t need; yet, I think it’s funny how certain ad campaigns actually get people to buy products. One of the funniest to me was the, “Headon! Apply directly to the forehead!” ads from a few years back.

    I almost went into the field of advertising when I was younger. I thought it would be fun to be a copywriter, but I met too many backstabbers and cheats so I trashed that aspiration. I’m happy I made that decision, because I’ve been in the field of education for over 10 years now.
