It seems that it no longer takes talent or skill to be on the television these days. All you have to do is fight with someone, eat something gross or try to fall in love in the blink of an eye. Heck, even I’ve fallen prey to watching a few of these so called shows. What are your choices when that’s all that is out there?
But I saw something on the television last night that (after spitting my drink out of my nose) had me
laughing in hysterics wondering whatever happened to the good ol’ days of decent television content.
It was a 30 second commercial of all things that threw me into this quandary. Check it out and let me know what you think.
Ummmmm….yeah. That’s just all kinds of
funny as hell bad right there. After I re-established my composure (it took awhile), I found myself longing for something more thought provoking on the television (yeah I know it is just a commercial) than an animated corn dong dog to sell antacids. No disrespect to Tums…heck I ate them like candy throughout all three of my pregnancies. They are fabulous and I'm convinced that they saved my stomach lining! I just cannot believe what it takes these days to grab the consumers’ attention. Are we so numb to decent program, with good acting that we need this type of content to stimulate our brains enough to keep watching?
Have we lost all our creativity that we have resorted to animated food attacking people….or is this considered creative?
What have you see on TV lately that has left you going Ummmm…yeah. That’s Bad! Or do you enjoy where TV programming has ended up?
