I’m realizing that I have really strong opinions about commercials. Sometimes I wonder how ad people could get them so wrong. But mostly I wonder if anyone else feels the same way as I do. So, here we go! I’m going to be
profiling venting about some of my most hated commercials and hoping that you guys will engage with me…
Pissing me off right now: the Toyota Highlander commercials
So, this little kid acting like an over-privileged asshole is supposed to make me, what? Want to buy this car so that other over-privileged asshole KIDS won’t think I’m “lame?” And, I’m sorry but, you “don’t tolerate dorkiness very well!?” You’re a CHILD! Basically, your job is “tolerate” a lot of stuff you don’t like until you grow the eff up. You’re lucky your parent’s “cart you around” at all in any kind of vehicle. [Insert “in my day” rant including snow covered hills and bare feet.] Hell, you’re lucky your parents have money to buy a vehicle at all after spending money on those trendy clothes that you got on there (that you’re just going to grow out of, you skinny-jeaned dick-head).
This, along with Kylie, the Windows 7 commercial toddler, are a constant reminder that it’s just not worth having children.
You should hear Aaron and I griping like old curmudgeons every time we see this commercial. So anyone else out there want to punch this kid in the face?
