Media madness again…GRRRR October 14, 2008

Filed under: media — A Relevant Old Soul @ 9:52 pm

Ok people so I really think it is time for a TV burning.. You know like the old fashioned book burnings of the past.  I say we pile them all up and set them on fire.  I rarely watch TV.  However, I am now watching the 17 and counting Duggar show on TLC and while watching last night I saw the following commercial.

I was so angry I almost threw our tv out the second story window.  They keep getting worse and worse.  If you do not believe me… Watch the Zencore commercials (I refuse to put that on here).  What struck me about this commercial is that it is using sex to sell a product to teens.  The people who use this product are adolescent age and they are using sex to target them as well.

I get frustrated even watching the news anymore.  Commercials are out of control.  I just needed to rant about this one today.  I am sure there will be more.

Philippians 4:8
Finally, brothers, whatever is true, whatever is noble, whatever is right, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is admirable—if anything is excellent or praiseworthy—think about such things.

  1. Know whatcha mean, girl. Mrs. Sarah recalls how she was embarrassed as a teen when she was watching TV with a boyfriend and a tampon commercial came on. With our 19 daughter now, the ante has been upped considerably in the ad world. Now we have not only the kind of stuff you showed in the YouTube, but also Viagara and junk like that. What in the world do our kids think when they see TV?

    I enjoy dropping in on your blog. Nice work.
    Mr. David
