So, I have seen this commercial many, many times over the last… I don’t know, 3 years, and it has continued to bother me and really just rub me the wrong way. The implication in this commercial is extremely frustrating and somewhat fear-mongering. I think my feelings toward this commercial have becoming increasingly volatile but even my initial viewing yielded some uneasy feelings. So, what are your thoughts? I’d love to hear what you guys think about the commercial–listen to the words they use and the language they use (the pop up comments are on the youtube video not the tv commercial).
I want to hear what everyone has to say about this video before I give you my take (tomorrow)–but here are the phrases that stood out to me and have really grated on my nerves recently.
“…but sometimes even friendly dogs turn bad and someone is hurt…”
“If you are someone you care about have been the innocent victim of a dog bite…”
Leave a comment, drop me an email, post on my facebook… whatever works but let me know what you think about this commercial that has been run FREQUENTLY for about 3 years or so.
