What is the deal with advertisements these days? Lately it seems like they're either really annoying, or they try really hard to make you cry.
Case in point: this ad from Pearle Vision that seems like it was designed by scientists to make you sob. It's about a young boy named Ben and how he adjusts to his new pair of glasses. I won't say any more, except grab a box of tissues before you press play, because this one's a doozy.
After this commercial and that Adidas ad set in the retirement home, I'm just making a new rule that we're only allowed to make commercials about dogs, or talking pieces of candy.
Pretty heavy stuff right? I don't know who wrote or directed this ad, but they're wasting their talent working on commercials. I say we give this commercial an Oscar, because if anyone else wins this year it would be a ripoff.
