My grandfather, wise man that he was, used to turn down the television at commercials. I used to love watching the commercials and would plead with him to turn it back up on my favorite ones, like Fruit Loops and Frosted Flakes. He never did, and would laugh at me and shake his head, surely foreseeing the inevitable decline in culture with the rise of marketing to children. Or, maybe he just understood how this business really worked, being he was a salesman.
We watch very little TV these days, occasionally the evening propaganda, so we know what the controllers want us to think. Of course, we always turn it down at the commercials.
Now though, I’m thrilled to see there are ads I’m loving again! This series cracks me up completely, who doesn’t love satire?!
The governments, it seems, don’t like it one bit. Which means I love it even more!
