With the superfluous advertising, incessant blogging, and extensive PR of my generation, I have seen my fair share of irritating ad campaigns. While I may hate the campaign, the product is usually worth it. HOWEVER, there are a handful of disappointments and I would like to point out the ones from my generation that upset me the most.
Today’s irritating commercial:
Hail to the V, the craddle of life campaign. If you don’t know what I’m talking about, watch this video, then read on:
Ok, so when this starts, I have no idea what it’s advertising. The first line claims this product is the cradle of life. I’m thinking “yeah, the cradle of life?” so maybe it’s a commercial for water? I mean the H2O PR people have gotten pretty presumptuous about their product, so why not claim it’s the cradle of life.
Then, the unknown product is described as the center of civilization. Ok still maybe water? But wow, really? The center of civilization? That’s not true where I come from. Our civilization center is a marble mult-purpose building, no where near running water, but maybe it’s an over generalization.
"Men have fought for it, even died for it." Ok what CAN this mysterious product be? Maybe it’s a preview for some awesome time traveling television show, where some bad ass character does something bad assy.
Ok, I’m on the edge of my seat commercial people!!! What is this product????
…Summer’s Eve Va-jay-jay wash.
Really? Men have fought for my whispering eye so I need to wash it with Summer’s Eve special wash? Ok. I’ll bite. But now you’re setting me up for greater disappointment when I go out in search of such a gallant knight who’s fighting for my captain fuzzy. Summer’s Eve, you are setting me up for failure. If all women think their vaginas are so fantastic, they will never settle for just any procreation appendage. They will all be in search of the perfect penis. And our species will die out. Thanks Summer’s Eve. You’ve officially set Armageddon into motion.
