Say What?

Has anyone seen the latest, Orbit gum, commercial? The one with Snoop Dogg? He gets sent to hell for his dirty mouth, but because he uses Orbit he gets to go to heaven. (Clean your dirty mouth) It’s a cute commercial I like it,… but, have you seen the small print that flashes on the screen when he’s in "heaven". It says that using Orbit gum won’t really get you into heaven….. NO REALLY???
Dayum, and here I was thinking I had the whole, eternal salvation thing covered, and was getting ready to run out and get a pack of gum!
What the hell? Do the advertisers really think we are that stupid?
OH, and if there are people out there that are that stupid, I suggest some mandatory castration, or hysterectomies. We don’t want them to breed…. Just a thought. LOL
How’s your day going? I’ve watered, fed the "troops", dealt with one temperamental bunny, and found that one of the cats left me a "gift" this morning on my doorstep, it’s a mangled, dead frog. Now, wasn’t that sweet? LOL I hope your day goes great. BIG HUGS, Steph

    Yes, I imagine people ARE that dumb – but I am assuming it was a little ironic humor – that message.  Which is kind of funny.  Come on, you know it is…

    That damn Snoop Dogg has really been changing his sense of style lately. I think he was burying his true calling when he was Snoop Doggy Dogg. Remember him?
    I\’ve seen that commercial, and it makes me laugh every. damn. time.
    I once bought a blender that came in a box with a picture of the blender, as well as some lovely frothy concoction (ha! I said "cock"! Kind of.) to demonstrate what could await the lucky buyer who purchased the magnificent blender. Written on that box, in tiny letters, were the words: "Blended drink not included."
    Good Lord.
    oh, and p.s.: Your husband is a dumb-ass. But I\’m guessing you already knew that.

    Thanks for the visit and Post.
    We brits ain\’t seem this yet if ever, sure I can probaly p2p it off somewhere.  My favourite commercial of all time is john west salmon, where the bear does the ali shuffle and the man beats him up to steal his fish.
    Anyway, thanks, first non-UK comments.

    OK, so wait a minute.  I\’ve lived my entire American adult life on the basis that all advertising is based on fact.  I guess that explains when I buy beer I don\’t have the Swedish bikini volleyball team show up at my house.  Dammit.  I\’m so gullible.
