20170324_155726I find most tv ads stupid. I don’t know anyone that watches them. Or you watch them but not because you want to. They interrupt the tv show you watch and you have to wait until they end to get to the show again. Or you get some coffee while they’re on. Either or.

I don’t know how the ad makers function. The ads are either boring or unrealistic. They probably have lots of research material to help with the ad process. They know how the public think and act and that makes them come up with “smart” ads.

The most stupid ads has to be the ones involving cleaning things. Cleaning is what most find boring. I don’t know anyone that dances to get to the cleaning supplies on cleaning day. The cleaning ads could make us feel that we want to clean an that their things make it easier to do. What I think when I watch their ads is that the cleaners need help in more ways than one. Often their homes are dirty beyond reasonable dirty. There is dirt everywhere old and new one. On the floor and ceiling. It must be because the ad makers want to show how their things clean everything. One other group of cleaners are those that let their dirty kids go crazy in their clean home. Parents with newly cleaned homes laugh when the kids storm in with dirt flying off them.

Those, especially those with the crazy dirty homes needs a therapist. You don’t need cleaning things you need advice on how not to loose your mind.

Already made

I like watching cooking shows on tv. Masterchef the England version is my favourite show. The judges are great because they are sympathetic and nice. When the contestants don`t do that good the judges don`t make them feel bad. There are other Masterchef versions where the judges are horrible.

There are talkshows where there are cooking segments. I like them too. One thing that strikes me when I watch them is that the stoves don`t seem to do what they should. You never see the food getting cooked. When they shoot something that`s supposed to be cooking there`s nothing going on. No bubbles in the so called boiling water or the butter in a frying pan sizzling away. There are food there but nothing happens.

Often the cooks say that things are already made. They make a dish and instead of completing it they pull out something that`s “already made”. I know that certain things takes too long to cook and to be able to show how the dish should look Before the program ends they need to make some things ahead of the show. I don`t know if that is the actual reason though. What if the stoves in some of these shows are just props and the only way of having a dish to show is to have something already made. I don`t know.
