While watching a movie with Hubby, it is one thing to see a commercial for medicine to correct the ED problem, but completely another thing to watch Rocky and get a commercial for: Pos-T-Vac which is a
That really made me laugh because I thought...HA! They have done a demographic survey of the target audience that will watch this movie, and men with struggles in that area of "practice" must be the primary group. Well...we are talking about a Rocky marathon here. So much testosterone on one little screen.
Then they want to make the guys feel even worse because the very next commercial is for "fono-chat", a chat line for Hispanic people.
These poor lonely guys don't stand a chance. First they must take a pill, then hook up the vacuum, then call and have someone whisper sweet nothings to them in a language they don't understand. Then they back to the regularly scheduled programming.
It was one thing to see those commercials for the KY His & Her Jelly, the ones where they talk about how each one does just the right thing for him and her, and when the meet WAMMO! Oh yeah, watching TV with my almost 13 year old son and seeing that commercial is nice. It shows how truly ready I am for addressing these things.
Him: I don't get it.
Me: NEVERMIIIIIIND! (This is where I proceed to leave the room and giggle/panic/and all the other things we mothers do when we realize it's getting close to that talk.)
It just doesn't seem right. If we are watching a channel like AMC, or a movie like Rocky, I would think the demographics would point towards commercials for athlete's foot, hair loss treatment, and lawnmowers. We shouldn't have to watch commercials for this stuff. Let the guys go back to buying these things out of their magazines...or off the internet for crying out loud.
Oh, and what does it say for our demographics ladies, when we are subject to daytime programming are we only offered laundry detergents, cleaning supplies and feminine hygiene?
What is up with that?
Bring on the commercials for B.O.B.s to make it fair!!! You do know what those are...right ladies? Come on. Think real hard.
