Every day we sit and moan about the rubbish being passed off as advertising, which the commercial channels would dearly like us to watch. Personally, I tape all my favourite shows and fast forward the commercials. It really gets up my nose that a high percentage of them are for junk food when more than half of the country is overweight. No wonder these poor people can’t lose weight, when they have food constantly brought to their attention. Speaking of advertising, I notice that although the stations can’t advertise cigarettes as such, have you noticed how many characters are now smoking in films, and television series etc. How sneaky is that? Alcohol is also advertised like that with characters drinking as part of the story. What sort of messages is that sending to young children? I don’t mind anyone having a drink or killing themselves with cigarettes that is their choice. What I do mind is influencing young children so they are predisposed to those behaviours. When we know the damage it is doing to society.
How refreshing would it be if more commercials were like this one? I am sure there would be no complaints forthcoming.
This really is Magic.. Enjoy
