TV Ads

     Maybe I don't hear ads on the TV properly -- when the woman in the commercial says, "Now I enjoy smooth skin every day," I'm thinking it's good she found a meal she likes, but she really ought to get more variety in her diet.

     The auto dealer's jingle runs, "[Dealer name]'s got your truck, man !" and I wonder why he'd steal some guys truck.

     They claim, "Buy now and save," and I compare the supposed "savings" with not buying and find the balance coming up negative.  They tell me, "Thirty days same as cash," and I'm wondering if it works like a court  sentence -- "Thirty days or one thousand dollars."  Heck, I might take a month off to huckster furniture in exchange for a new living room suite!

Nah. You're just rational.

There's one here that says "We live in a pick and choose world" and I first heard it as "We live in a Pikachu world."

Yeah, I probably watch too many cartoons.

I've seeing an ad for some new hair product. The name is the same as the US/Allied commander for Desert Storm.
But the voice over is done with a faux-Beeb accent that makes it sound like "schwanzkopf"...

The new KIA / aircraft carrier ad.

Do I really want to buy a car that someone delusionally thinks will "fly under the radar" across the waves? I keep hoping they add 5 seconds to the ad, and show the car running off the bow and dropping into the sea, blub, blub, blub.

Two or more subcultures separated by a common language.

I'm amused by the guy who has a reptile dysfunction.
