I don't know if I'm becoming more aware, more cynical, or if tv and radio marketing tactics are just becoming more obvious.
Whatever the cause, I'm finding it annoying.

I guess commercials for hospitals have to have stringed instruments like violins and cellos in the musical score. This makes the hospital seem serious, precise, and...well, I don't really know what.

Tired of hearing whistling and little chimey & light-hearted jingles for food or whatever. Is this supposed to make the food "fun"?
It makes the food annoying!

What's the deal with mattresses? Do you have to be some sort of wimp to enjoy sleep?


...I think I might have just become a geezer. Ugh.

Back during the 1950s and 1960s, there was at least some vague pretense of conveying spec info in car commercials. Now it's all about "your image" and fantasy special effects. Sometimes I'm not even quite sure what brand of car it is, since they all look pretty much alike anymore.

Right, I recently had a couple of My Pillow and Mattress threads.

I like the ads that claim all kinds of traction control, and then show the car skidding around.

Well the Doan's Pills for backache are........back!
Also we have "I've Fallen and Can't Get Up" back also.

My favs are the ones for medications that show people happily dancing through fields of back-lit daisies or flirting on a tropical beach while a quick litany of dire side effects of the drug in question is murmured in soothing tones.

Okay: based on that guys demeanor, I'm pretty sure that Toujeo must contain a rather stiff jolt of cocaine.

Most ads are a disconnect from the product.

I always enjoy the drug ads that say they are miracle cures but.. caveat.. you may die from its use.

Hmmm...I didn't mind the swimming pool guy at all.
But the weird, short haired woman dancing by herself on the rooftop really bugged me...weirdo.

The guy lawn dancing seems a bit "happy" to me.

The following are my comments to a thread on pharmaceuticals back in October 2016:

=====

I skipped all the worry (and drugs) and bought the record Hopeful Piano Music.

It's the stuff they play toward the end of all those pharmaceuticals commercials, after they describe the character's symptoms and how crappy their life is--voiced over dreadful cello droning with no key center--and filmed in black and white.

Then they say the name of the drug they're peddling, the character's life changes for the better, and it switches from black-and-white to full color.

And the hopeful piano music is playing. Sometimes there's also percussion and bass added!

I gotta tellya, it's way cheaper than paying for prescriptions!

In my neck of the woods these days Toyota has hijacked The Beach Boys "wouldn't it be nice" to hawk their cars. I really use to like that tune...
