I sure hope none of you feel this kind of pressure while reading my blog.
Speaking of disturbing commercials, take a gander at this commercial for AT&T. It is what I used to generate the meme above.
I feel so sorry for the poor, hapless guy in this commercial. First Gordon Ramsey insults him. Then Gordon slaps his hand. And then his girlfriend turns on him like a rabid wolverine and tears him a new one for the egregious crime of failing to use a cocktail stick.
He must certainly feel like the world is no longer on his side.
Personally, I think the cocktail stick is not the problem in their relationship. I think the cocktail stick is really just a Freudian metaphor for a much deeper psychological rift in the fabric of their relationship.
I hope he left that store much wiser and knowing what he must do to achieve true happiness in life.
And I’m pretty sure it does not involve cocktail sticks.
