There was an old commercial on the television that spoke of the “fabric of life”….probably a commercial about cotton…or it could have been tinker toys for all I know. In any event it had this soft semi-romantic music …and that is all that I remember about it. When I saw the prompt for the day, that commercial came to mind. BUT, I really, really do not remember what it was trying to sell.
It makes me wonder why companies spend so much money on advertisements that no one remembers? How is that supposed to make you buy the product?
There’s a commercial on the tube lately that annoys the Hell out of me. The lady talking never enunciates…so you have no clue what she is saying. It sounds like “more something Parole”……….now, I don’t know about you but I don’t want to buy or use anything that is on parole. What if its first action is to grab a knife and hold you up? or what if it steals the annoying television?
I wrote an email to the company……….and said if they wanted me to buy their product they should darned well get a spokesperson who could speak…or change the stupid tag line.
They never responded.
If we have to have commercials, why can’t we have honest ones? I’d buy a product if they’d just tell the truth about them….good and bad.
Like that parole commercial…why can’t the dumb girl just say, “these are overpriced but have pretty designs on them to match some kitchen decor”…or “these are two ply but each ply is actually 1/2 of what one ply tissues are, so they’re actually equal and won’t pick up any more liquid than any other towel”….or “these don’t actually do anything special but we need braces for Johnny so please buy them”.
I’d buy those. I know how much braces cost.
