Ever listen to the TV in another room and...

when the ads come on half of them go right over your head like you never figure out what/who they were for?


Any particular network they come on?


I think I've had the CW on for almost an hour and as if? I have to look out of the door to see what it is.


PS I guess I have The Flash on.

Many TV ads are generic pastiches of the pleasant lifestyle variety. They can plug in any product or service later. Polished, slick, good looking, affordable and indistinguishable between ads for new prescriptions to cure Seasonally Afflicted Digestion for 30something women who are hitting their sexual peak at the same time their tummies are veering wildly between constipation and constantly needing to poop; a beach vacation in a trendy home furnishings outlet store; and (insert your online/local delivery hipster startup here).

Naw, it was some dumb and inanely catchy tune that hardly had a word into 20 seconds to tell you what the heck it was they were selling.


You have five seconds to tell me it's chocolate, beer or a car before you are zoned out cold.
