I’m not the kind of person who sits around analyzing what commercials say about today’s society. I don’t even watch commercials usually. We have a DVR and Roku with Netflix and Amazon Prime. No. Commercials. Ever. Last night, we were watching DVR’ed Big Bang Theory and stumbled on this commercial:
And I was floored. I couldn’t understand if I was supposed to have warm fuzzy feelings from the commercial but I have the absolute opposite. Happy children? Wonderful. But the message this commercial portrays is
- Nature is boring
- Education is boring
- It is preferable to be in a florescent lighted boxed store
- (full of plastic gender stereotyped target audiences)
You don’t have to agree with #4. I’m mentioning this because the whole nonsense that little girl spouted about princesses following their dreams was meant to warm our hearts to this hedonistic free-for-all. And I’m not buying it. I’m not buying any of it.
