Has anyone ever watched MTV for a long period of time, or actually any cable television show late at night and been bombarded with stupid "text messaging" commercials? Honestly, who is actually sending "joke" to 29292 so that they can be the funniest person in their "clique"?
I mean, thinking back ... it must be doing quite well because there are about fifty different text message commercials to use from: Horoscopes, Ring tones, Naughty night time texts, Jokes, trivia ... the list just goes on and on.
And furthermore ... what a stereotype! All of the "urban" music ... the text number has "420" in it. Every time! Now, what is THAT supposed to mean exactly!? Not everyone that likes rap music tokes up!
Also, do people realize that by texting once they are signed up for a subscription? I can only imagine how difficult it is to cancel that one. Hours and Hours on the phone with that chipper announcer explaining all of the terms and conditions ... "Well, you've signed your life over to Satan because you wanted Party Like a Rockstar as an AWESOME ring tone on your phone! Text Rock to 420 20!!!" -gag-
And while I'm on this rant ... what about all of those "local singles" hot lines. Are people really believing that girls as hot as the girls on the commercials are waiting around for their dumb ass to call them? Honestly.
Sometimes I wonder ... really really wonder.
