If the Internet can customize commercials as you surf, why can't television?
For instance, I lurrrve watching The Food Network.
Yes I AM a Foodie Junkie.
We even own a few celebrity cookbooks. (Okay, I have as yet to actually *ahem* USE them, but that's not important right now...)
Nevertheless, I can't think of anything better than a huge weekend brunch in front of the TV watching show after show from Ricardo, Giada, Nigella ...
... and especially Jamie. Talk about tasty.
Saucy, fresh and full of rich body.
And his recipes look good too.
Err, sorry about that.
But what grinds my gears are the commericals that run at each break. They leave a LOT to be desired:
- Quaker Weight Control Oatmeal
- Gravol (WTF???)
After watching chef after chef deftly grate huge blocks of hard parmesean, fresh mozerella and aged sharp cheddars all dripping from super sharp metal rasps, THIS is not the next thing I want to see:
Eww, Eww, EWW! After literally grating down the foot, they disassemble the human skin scraper and tap out THE MOST disgusting pile of greyish crap!!!!
I just lost my appetite.
I cannot fathom how the hell this is appropriate advertising.
No matter how cute Jamie is.
