Dear Advertiser,

Just a Little Friendly Advice

Insulting…Really October 17, 2007

Dear Sony,

In America, you advertised the Bravia television as being for both the genders – how inventive! It’s got sound for men, something else that women like in TV…Point being, they are boring and seriously lack creativity.

In the UK, you advertise the Bravia as follows:

These UK ads beg the question: Do you hate Americans? The British spots are mesmerizing – they’re art. They’re a gift! Not only to nerdy ad junkies, but to all of us who stare at the television, rotting out our brains.

They look like it took a lot of thought and work. (In fact, I know they did, because you’ve even devoted special websites and videos to discuss the making.) Why, oh why, do you not deem Americans worthy of the good commercials? You even filmed one in San Francisco!! I guess “Color” just doesn’t have the impact of “Colour.”

Truly Yours,



This is OUR Country, Dammit!

Dear Chevy,

I hate to sound cynical, but the first thing that popped into my head was, “Is that the fence they’re building to keep the Mexicans out?” Just a thought.

God Bless America,
