I’ve found another commercial or two I dislike intensely. Unfortunately, I can’t find the specific one that’s made me irritated online anywhere. Twix.com has one on their site for your viewing displeasure, that runs along the same theme.
All of the “Need a Moment?” commercials tend to bug me, primarily in that you shouldn’t need to chomp on a candy bar to get out of explaining your bad behaviour. You simply shouldn’t being behaving badly, and then you could enjoy your damned candy bar with a clear conscience. But that’s just me, Preacher SBG, and my opinion.
The commercial that’s got me annoyed is the one with two guys standing in a bookstore reading something entitled “How To Score Hot Chicks” or something similar (forgive, it’s been a while since I’ve seen it) and giggling like idiots. A beautiful woman walks up, and gasps at one of the men she apparently knows, “WHAT are you reading?” The guy who’s eating a Twix instead of holding the book jams the candy bar into his mouth to give himself time to think, then turns to his partner in crime and says, “You should be ashamed!” The woman immediately changes from indignant to relieved and interested and the Twix guy walks off with her, victorious.
Now, I don’t completely begrudge the guys for reading the stupid book. However, they both seemed to feel guilty and/or embarrassed at being caught reading it, and I really cannot stand the resulting win of the hot chick. It kind of says to me that it’s okay for men to trick women to get in their good graces and that women are easy to fall for these tricks.
It’s all very funny ha-ha, isn’t it? .
