An idle thought (perfume ads)

Few TV ads can be as consistently nonsensical, ridiculous, crappy, and
risible as perfume ads. Given you can’t feel the fucking perfume on
the telly, the agencies fall over themselves to come up with the
weirdest possible arrangements force people to notice their wares.

Making things worse, on many cable channels those annoying
imbecilities are shown repeatedly, ad nauseam, sometimes more than
once in the same commercial break.

I don’t know if there’s any statistic on the effectiveness of those
monstrosities; if you work in the ad industry, know this: at least for
this consumer, the whole thing backfires. It only annoys me.

Truth be told, I hate perfume in the first place, anyway.
