Random Thoughts about this old Ensure commercial
The woman in this commercial has a refrigerator which includes fruit (some of which has no business being ain a refrigerator, but never mind...) yet reaches for a bottle of water, sand and artificial flavoring while wearing a big smile which reads "I'm so happy I'm about to drink this sludge, yay me!" Seriously, WTF? Why not finish off that....lemon? Grapefruit? Um, you didn't even put that in a bag, woman- what do you think that's going to look like after a day in a dark refrigerator?
Oh wait, apparently the light never goes out in this fridge. That's annoying. Is the light really turning off in my fridge? Now I'm getting paranoid. This is going to keep me awake. I mean, I'm not concerned about the food in my fridge being bullied by a bottle of Ensure, becasue I don't have any Ensure in my fridge, or food for it to bully for that matter. But is that light turning off after I've fetched another can of Diet Coke?
Oh, and that fridge looks to be the size of a walk-in closet. Maybe that's why she's so happy- it's not a refrigerator, it's that extra room in her house which is kept unusually cold for the food products that live in it.
The Ensure bottle has taken it on itself to make sure that the woman who bought it stays healthy and proceeds to banish unacceptable foodstuffs to....the crisper, I guess. I mean, tha's what's at the bottom of my refrigerator, so I assume that this one is designed the same way, even though it is about eight times larger than mine. Come to think of it, I've never had anything in my crisper. I should make sure my fridge actually has one.
Wait, where was I? Oh yeah- the woman put a corndog and a cupcake and a jar of mayonaisse in her fridge, but they don't pass "mustard" (sorry, I couldn't resist) with Field Marshal Ensure so out they go? And which bottle of Ensure is in charge- there are several bottles there? Do the other bottles just sit there and wait to carry out orders?
