commercial-isms

I hardly ever watch TV--except the nights when I go to the gym.

That's where I saw this commercial:

I don't like Wendy's, and this commercial did not change my mind about that. But I appreciate the light, quick tempo, and the witty little scenes. Previews and Commercials have always been two of my favorite parts about TV entertainment.

I think it's because they only require a short attention span, yet you can still ponder the message they're sending.

This one sends a good message: People, for the most part, appreciate what's REAL.

What messages do you get from it?

Speaking of what's "real" and what's not, did everyone read the 4-Bushel FarmGal's thoughtful post on reality TV shows? It was a good one!

(and just so y'all know what's REAL-ly going on behind the blog, I completely cracked myself up with the title to this post!)

  1. I am surprised that so many of my otherwise normal friends are devoted to some of the "reality" shows. That said, I never miss "Top Chef."

  2. Hi Lupines,
    Thanks for the commentary!
    I have to admit, I enjoyed commercial (4 times!) Very catchy tune. And loved the ending - the woman riding her bike against the beautiful backdrop.

    It did turn me off to the burgers in the warming tray, so was it successful? Hmmm....
