I don’t like the commercials for that Stride gum that’s out now. You know the ones: factory workers acting insane while business men and angry asians talk about how the gum is just too good and the flavor lasts so long that people never get to a second piece.
That had better be true or I’m going to be pissed.
I hate bullshit advertising. I particularly loathe those horrendous Nike commercials that are extremely over dramatic and depict a jogger running through the mist or some horseshit like that. I have this one commercial that I saw recently for some kind of cough medicine that I enjoy and it’s because it’s funny and honest. They basically say that their cough medicine tastes like dick but it works just the same. Kudos for them for not making the claim that the junk is something you will enjoy because let’s face it: all cough medicine tastes horrid.
For the time being I am only really aggravated by the Stride commercials and so I went out and bought a pack because I truly must do my own experiment and see just how long the flavor lasts. So, as of 9:30 this morning I shall begin chewing two pieces of Stride gum and I will keep chewing until it has no flavor.
Then, I shall display my findings here in my blog.
Good day to you.
