No, it's not. It's brainwashing and it irritates the heck out of me. Two of the last three movies I saw in the theater were loaded with advertising. The advertising in one of them was so blatant that it ruined the movie for me. I quit going to NHRA drag racing because I got tired of having big advertising shoved down my throat. I'm nearly ready to quit watching baseball altogether because of the amount of advertising thrown at viewers.
I've noticed that companies also regularly pay personalities from popular radio shows to pitch their products. How about watching a really good show on TV then when a commercial comes on they kick up the volume a notch?
Can anybody guess why I don't like watch the Super Bowl either?
