Lets talk Commercials...

I think my calling in life is to write jingles for commercials...weird?? That's okay, I've been called that a time or two. many times are you watching TV when a commercial comes on and the jingle just gets stuck in your head?? If you ask Severyn EVERY jingle gets stuck in my head and I tend to walk around singing it for hours...annoying anyone within my vicinity. Lately the Saturn commercial has been stuck in my head sooo badly that I just had to google the words to the jingle and find out if it was in fact a song....and THEN I had to download it to iTunes...why?? b/c I didn't know the rest of the song after the commercial ends and it was driving me crazy only knowing a line or two. LOL...WHO does that????
So if you hear me singing "I just can't seem to get it right today...." THAT is why!!
The second commercial that I wanted to mention was the new Pedigree commercial. Now I don't know how many people have even notice...but being the animal lover I am...I spotted it the second they started showing the new commercial. The first one disturbed me sooo much so that I would find myself tearing up whenever it came on. I wonder if others heartstrings were pulled as hard as mine were...and thats the reason they made the second one...maybe....I def. thought about writing in to question the commercial.
If you are thinking "what in the world is she talking about???" Well......There is this Pedigree commercial and it shows this cute little collie looking mutt sitting in a cage. He stands up in the beginning of the commercial and runs to the front of the cage and just looks out with these huge, sad, big, brown eyes. He watches people walk into the pound and then walk past him...the whole time some sad sappy song is playing and then it cuts to Pedigree talking about how they donate a percentage of their proceeds to animal shelters. Well, thats all fine and dandy, but for those of us who break down every time they see that poor gets you thinking, "well what happened to the dog in the commercial??"
Apparently they understood my needs and concerns...b/c just the other day I noticed they changed the commercial to show the doggy in the cage and then he "says" something along the lines of "Thanks to pedigree donations and people like you I've been adopted and I'll never go back to living in a cage!" and then it shows him running around playing!!! YaYYYYYY....Thanks Pedigree, I don't know how many more times I could watch the original commercial without bawling.

okay...thats it, the end.

I felt the same way about the Pedigree commercial! I always wondered after it was over why they didn't show what happened to the dog!

Right now, my favorite jingle is the MacBook Air commercial. I sing it all the time! "I'm a new soul living in this strange world..." I just love it!
