Time for a call out. I make it a habit to be encouraging on this blog. But I felt the antithesis of encouraged after watching the following commercial.
~~~ The commercial conjures up these words instead: Materialism. Entitlement. Isolation. Disconnect from parents. ~ Painful? Lame you say? So young blue-eyed blonde boy, a lame parent it makes to sing on key, enthusiastic together about something other than a sweet ride, guilty of…what, harmonizing? We didn’t even see your parents. Not a face, nothing but a few wisps of hair. ~ I realize I’m interpreting 400 level lessons from a car commercial meant to incite laughter, a jovial guffaw at what families having to live without a built-in entertainment systems might possibly have to endure, but that’s how I roll. I cringe every time this commercial comes on. Why? Because I’d rather be in the car jamming with my folks than thinking I’m better than the rest of the world. ~ What’s your reaction to this commercial?
