I don't usually have time to watch too much TV, but tonight while cooking dinner I turned it on to drown out the sounds of maniacle 9 year olds playing in my sons room.~ Anyway I overheard part of a commercial that mentioned something to the effect of, "...provides complete nutrition for them too." Wondering what they could be referring to, I wandered into the living room to see that the commercial on was for dog food...
I have nothing against feeding my pets nutritious food, but the commercial made me realize how many commercials I have seen over the years for food products geared toward adults (and especially kids) and they seldom, if ever, seem to tout many/any nutritional benifits- yet the commercials for pet foods seem to try to make a point of letting their audience know that if they value their pets health they'll invest in brand ____. Food commercials for crappy stuff (like poptarts and candy/chips/soda and all that kind of stuff) seem to give the viewer the impression that their product tastes great, and is great for when you're on the go... (etc)
So as humans- we value the health of our pets over our kids and ourselves? Damn.
How long will we stay at the top of the food chain with that mentality
Maybe it's just my imagination though- has anyone else noticed this?
