In the end, I guess I just hate everyone in this Kay Jewelers commercial. Nothing new about that.
I swear this commercial showed up no less than 1200 times during two NFL games last Sunday. And it just got more cloying and banal and just plain dumb and pointless with each airing. By halftime of the second game, I had it memorized, and had gone from wanting the Judgmental Seriously Who Asked Your Opinion Old Man to just waddle outside and die in a snowbank to actually being on his side and reminding The Boyfriend that he's a guest in someone's home and not on his own couch in his own apartment.
I mean, come on. Come up for air, people Lady? It's a freaking watch. Get over it.
At the same time- Stupid Old Man? Your ass isn't nailed to that chair, is it? How about stretching your legs for a bit? Better yet- instead of bitching about toys that need batteries (how old is this guy? Most of the toys I got when I was a kid needed batteries, and I bet his did, too. Jesus is he going to start waving his cane around and shaking his fist at clouds next?) how about playing with your grandkids? Trust me, the young couple that is just trying to share a moment won't miss you and your running commentary one damned bit.
Oh, and "looks like we got a man here?" Um, why- because he didn't get your (daughter? Granddaughter?) a toy or cell phone or computer for Christmas? What exactly is superior about a piece of jewelry? What the hell is the matter with you?
Oh wait, I forgot. No more running commentary, please. I believe there's still a snowbank out there with your name on it.
