Holiday Highlights...

Sunday, December 18, 2011

After a brief hiatus, I'm back. Its been super busy with work, Christmas shopping and traveling. I recently traveled to Charleston, South Carolina for a long weekend, which was beautiful. There is something about being near the ocean regardless of the season. Anyhow, in the midst of all the holiday chaos, I would like to bring attention to some of the utterly awful holiday commercials. The worst and clear winner is Lexus with the "December to Remember Sales Event"commercials. If you haven't seen it,  please view below.

This particular commercial is my favorite. First of all, the music sucks. Secondly, how special that in this economy, twenty-somethings can afford a brand new Lexus for their significant other. What happened to a nice Christmas sweater? After seeing this commercial, no matter what you bought your special someone, you feel like a piece of crap. "Damn, that iTunes gift card and coffee mug really suck compared to that japanese sports car." How about all the people that don't have a job at the moment? I think Lexus needs to participate in some economic-specific cultural training... better known as, our economy sucks right now, please advertise lame ass holiday promos in 10-20 years.

How about if you are the recipient of this grandiose gift?  "Ummm, how much are my car payments going to be?" or "I hate red. I'm definitely going to get a few reckless driving tickets, thanks honey!"
Not to mention, the picturesque wintry background in all the commercials. "Dear Lexus, I don't think too many places in the U.S. will have snow on the ground for Christmas because of a little something called, GLOBAL WARMING."Arctic ice is disappearing and average temperatures are climbing, except in your commercials. That's weird....
