No Shit!

Why do advertising execs always feel they have to pander to the lowest common denominator? Does McMahon and Tate really believe that intelligent, educated people don't watch television? Case in point...the latest ad campaign from Lysol shows a beaming mother cutting up carrots for her precious tot. The cutting board for the carrots just happens to be next to a bowl of raw chicken legs. Mommy hands a carrot to her offspring. And now this is the part that just bugs the shit out of me...the word "Dramatization" pops up at the bottom of the screen as Tommy Tot's carrot morphs into a chicken leg. Blah, blah, blah-rest of commercial. Dramatization? You mean carrots don't really morph into chicken legs? Damn! Do you realize what that could do to help end world hunger? Carrots are hearty things. Send them over by the case to underdeveloped nations and help end world hunger. And they keep pretty well too. You wouldn't have to turn them all into chicken legs all at once. Spread it out a little. Have some chicken tonight, then around dinner time tomorrow, BOOM more chicken.
Oohh. It was a dramatization. Now I get it.
