My former roommate, Julie, and I always said that there should be some sort of approval process for commercials. Not the FCC to regulate swear words or racy content, no - there needs to be some sort of panel to approve only funny and entertaining commercials. Of course, Julie and I would have been the only two people on this panel.
Beer commercials normally do a pretty good job of keeping it funny - approved.
Birth control commercials.....ugh. We can make this topic a bit lighter, can't we? And I don't mean showing a group of girl friends out to dinner casually bringing up their birth control method and rambling on about the facts and side effects. It's just weird.
Car commercials are either driving in the desert and kicking up dust, dropping lots of weight in the back of a truck, or facts, facts and more facts. Boring.
Insurance commercials are about 50/50. Sometimes they're serious, sometimes they attempt the humor (although, I'm just about done with that little gecko).
I really appreciate what Kotex did recently - check it out.....
