OK. Have you guys seen this commercial? If not, I implore you to Watch Now.
The Barely sub-Adonis-like Curtis Stone wandering through a wheat field (a la Sandy Duncan, The Wheat Thins Years) blathering some rubbish about how you can tell that the cereal is “less processed” because you can see the seam in the wheat. See the other guy’s flake? No seam! Inconceivable! That crappy cereal is obviously over-processed. Ick. You know, because given today’s technology, it’s impossible to manufacture a seam.
Now, I’m not saying that this be-seamed cereal is Not Good. I’m just saying that if McDonald’s can sell a sandwich that is shaped to look like a wee rack of ribs–bones and all–with nothing more than a Play-Doh mold, a steamer and a brown marker, the Post folks could surely figure out how to create a Seam down the centers of their cereal flakes. Not that they did. But they could have. To wit: the commercial, she is crap.
So, am I the only person who feels this way? Am I the only one who watches commercials and asks, “Who, exactly, are these geniuses targeting?” or “How many takes did it take to get through this with a straight face?!” or blurts out, “Crack smokers!” Maybe I should develop a hobby. Or a different hobby. Weigh in in the comments section, if you like. Have a lovely day!
