Take a look at this commercial.  But be warned that it isn’t very clean.

Look familiar?  It was aired during Super Bowl XLV.
What did you think?
In my opinion, disgusting.  I’m not quite sure what these people are thinking about when they shot this stuff, but it is outrageous.  So yes, there are people like the boy in the commercial who watch the Super Bowl, but how about the rest of the crowd who has to suffer through it.
How about the kids?
If I had a child I would definitely be concerned about today’s advertisements.  Just watch normal TV and you’ll know what I’m talking about.
I’m a little worried about the upcoming years for advertisement.  I don’t watch TV that often, but the times that I do I see a lot of garbage, and it seems to be getting worse, especially the Super Bowl.
Now I like advertising, and as a matter of fact my brother is in the industry, but there are certain boundaries that should not be crossed when it comes to what’s being posted on television or on buses or billboards.
Putting a couple of skinny women in bikinis is not the right way to draw the audience, even though most of us agree that that is what draws in them.  It’s just for the sake of the rest of society that doesn’t want to look at it.  And unfortunately we are forced to look at it, on our way to work, school, the gym, hey, even church for that matter.
Let me know what you think about the shift in advertising.
