Army of Mom

So this is how liberty dies ... with thunderous applause.



These ads are just a little too creepy for me. Have you seen the new Sprite ad with the "subLYMONal advertising" slogan? It is scary.

We have this guy who dries up without his Lemon-Lime drips.

And, then we have the Lemon-Lime sumos.

I think what freaks me out is the quick image changes interspersed. It just reminds me of something scary I saw as a kid. I can't put my finger on it, but I relate these commercials with something frightening. At some point in my life I have seen some video featuring images of death and destruction made like this ad. Maybe it is in Fifth Element when she is fast-tracking through the history of mankind and Lelu sees all the war and killing. THAT is it. The more I think about it, that is it. So, I associate Sprite now with all the bad things in the world. Hmm, not a very successful ad campaign for me and I'm the chief grocery shopper in this family.
