The Most Annoying Thing About the Holidays
There is so much to love about the holiday season, but one type of TV ad is starting to drive me insane.
Can we please talk about the most annoying thing to come to television every Christmas? I'm referring to perfume/cologne ads.
Seriously, is there anything dumber to make a TV commercial for? You can't describe the smell in them, they never even try to describe the smell and the concepts are just plain weird.
I mean what is this Johnny Depp Sauvage ad trying to say?
Am I supposed to want my man to smell like he drove out to the middle of the desert and buried something? Because I don't want that. I really, really don't want that.
And this one starring Keira Knightley for Coco Mademoiselle.
Do I want to smell like the night after a party? Do I want to smell like the girl who hooked up with a tattooed rocker? Do I want to smell like the tattooed rocker's coat to remember him? What in the world is this commercial describing?
But perhaps my least favorite is the J'adore ad with Charlize Theron.
Again I am left wondering what it is I want to smell like here. A sexy all-lady Turkish bath? Or is it that the smell of J'adore is so powerful I am going to be compelled to strut my stuff everywhere I go like I'm walking a catwalk?
I know what you're thinking, Wow Nancy, too much time spent on analyzing perfume ads. And yes, I agree. But these things never change and are aired like 20 times a night, every night during the holidays.
I have been forced to over-analyze simple to keep myself sane.
So enough already, can Christmas shopping season be over so these ads can be over too?
