Stop Excessive Spending, but No One’s Ever Asked for a Smaller Gift

16 Dec

(More ranting against luxury car commercials.) I hate the current advertising slogans. Its like the people who write these things do not live in the real world.

Acura wants us to put an end to excessive holiday spending and buy an Acura. Perhaps they do not know what excessive means?

Lexus tells us that no one ever wanted a smaller gift. They apparently don’t have wives or girlfriends who have ever dreamed of the perfect diamond earrings.

I know I’m not the target audience, but having a slogan that actively makes me dislike you doesn’t seem like a good plan.
