What's the "Hidden Message" in this Walmart ad?
A commentator on YouTube suggests that there is a "hidden message" in this commercial. I don't think the message is hidden. I think it's pretty obvious. The message is "this package from Walmart gives you the freedom to jabber away like a witless, cell phone-addicted idiot and that's a good thing." Nothing hidden about it.
Oh, she's a black woman married to a white guy? Is that what he's talking about? So he thinks the hidden message is "mixed marriages are bad because they lead to shopping at Walmart and spending every waking moment yakking away like an obnoxious moron and thinking 'I can do this all day' is a GOOD thing?" Seems kind of obscure.
