On one of the radio stations here in TO, specifically on Virgin 99.9, I will name names, are running a new ad for an amusement park who I ethcially refuse to name.
It is disgusting.
The audio on the ad is a deep agressive man's voice, speaking to a woman as her rapist.
The first time I listened to it I was so transfixed by horror that we listened right through. To my neverending delight I had eldest in the car with me. There was a pause after the ad ended, and we both voiced our stunned confusion and sheer vomitous repulsion at this ad.
She is even faster than me at turning off the station, and I have to confess, we won't be listening much longer if it goes on.
It is one of those moments that makes me lose faith in humanity. That an ad like that could be conceived, then approved, and made is simply terrifying. Can you imagine sitting around thinking up ideas and actualy having the nerve to say, "Hey, why don't we simulate a rape on air, that'll really bring them in!" And it got the go ahead!?!?!
That a radio station consented to run it and that they think it will sell.
There really are people out there who can at best be described as creepy. Worst? Don't want to go there.
God some people are repulsive.
May my kids never come across any of them.
Wishful thinking. We already are coming across them every time that ad comes on.
Makes me want to spew.
