A kind of Revenge

There is a particularly loathsome TV commercial featuring the image of Audrey Hepburn trotting merrily away to a heavy metal song. It might have been cute once, but I even found nothing redeeming in simply pushing nostalgia buttons to make us salivate for consumer products.

That was the first time. Now the commercial is blanketing the airwaves, and what initially seemed moderately cute now just seems so vulgar that it truly inspires feelings of revulsion. On a more positive note, now that the commercial has ended, I cannot even remember what product it was supposed to advertise.

Ah, the price one pays for watching syndicated TV for free…
