An Annoying Commercial
Have you seen those commercials for Jared's jewelers with women saying "He
went to Jared's" over and over again?
They're all annoying, but one really takes the cake. One of them is set at a party. All the other women are showing off what they got and saying "He went to Jared's." One woman is getting more and more angry. At the end, her significant other sees her and says "Hi honey." (Of course, he's shown to be an utter dork.) And she drops the jewelery box he gave her into his drink! What an ungrateful greedy b*tch!!!
Some of the other ones are almost as annoying. It's the same party, and some guys are hearing women say -- you got it -- "He
went to Jared's" over and over again. The guys (portrayed as dorks again) mutter "Of course he did." I think one of them also parrots the women by saying "He went to Jared's" in a high-pitched voice, like a !@#$ kid in elementary school. At the end, they glare at the man who went to Jared's -- apparently he's making their lives too hard.
Gag me. If I were to buy jewelery this season (yah, right!), I would make sure to get it somewhere *other* than Jared's. Anyway, I get more pleasre from big clunky pendants and fantasy-themed costume jewelery and stuff like that. :-)
I hope companies like this make a New Year's resolution to stop making commercials this hideous. Then again, they probably think that if people like me are talking about it, they've accomplished their objective. Yeah, right.
And I'm not the only person who thinks this sucks. Here's a post
about it from Mensactivism.org.
