Chewy.com lost me at "hey pet lovers!"
...so maybe I shouldn't snark on this particular series of commercials. After all, they aren't trying to sell me anything. I don't have any pets. I don't want any pets. You couldn't PAY me to have a pet.
I do have to say, however, that I hate this "dream come true" stuff. I see no evidence that dogs dream at all, let alone that they dream about their owners buying them food and toys. Then again, I've seen commercials featuring dogs "dreaming" about car loans, luxury automobiles, low-interest mortgages, annuity settlement services, carbonated soda, and any number of other things they don't ever experience, so....
Maybe I should have just stuck with my original instinct and just left Chewy.com commercials alone. But I just hate the sickly/stupid twee/cutesy feel of all these dumb ads, so I'll probably keep it up.
