I was listening to my ani difranco pandora station when out of no where a target commercial came on. I was totally blindsided.

It informed me that if I bought my groceries at target I would start singing. Not only would I sing all the time, but I would in fact sing while I shopped. I feel completely gipped. I have not only bought groceries at target, but other various useless items and I have not once started singing. I am left wondering why is my target not as song inducing as promised. It is like the time the Starbucks commercial promised me I could have my frappuccino with any flavor I wanted and then, they did not have any peppermint flavoring.
I know it is not just me who is getting left out because I have yet to see anyone else singing either. Which leaves me to wonder where are these singing people? How do I find them? And will there be free Starbucks with peppermint?
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.
