Commercials

A few weeks ago I wrote about my favorite commercials. Tonight, it's time to mention my least favorite.

They have various beginnings such as a trial with a witness talking about the evidence being all over the floor. In another, a private detective talks about seeing them all over, even in front of the window, and in another, a mother is telling her grown daughter that she deserves better by pointing out the mess left behind.

Can you guess the product? The camera then usually pans to show some cleaning supplies such as a feather duster or mop. They are trying to sell the Swiffer. I find these commercials so annoying and dumb that I just change the channel when they appear. They certainly don't inspire me to buy a Swiffer.

Do you know which commercial bothers me the most? "Have a happy period." Only a man could have thought that one up. Bah! Humbug!
