Merge Wright: Commericials Taking Over The World
Commercials are taking over the world
Have you noticed on the internet that when you start reading a story that sounds very interesting you end up navigating through pages of commercials to get from one paragraph to another? Then after getting lost multiple times you get to the last paragraph which states “This story was not true and was written as a fun reading experience for you.” What! After navigating through maybe 60 ads/commercials and 70 paragraphs it’s not true? What a waste of time. You gain nothing and lose a half hour of your time.
Example #2 Your watching AGT. America’s Got Talent which is two hours long. The 10 talent acts will take up approximately 30 minutes of the two hours, stories about the contestants another 30 minutes and commercials will take up one whole hour of the two hour show. Ads, commercials are everywhere nowadays. Count how many you see every day and you will be blown away. In the future of life events like concerts, sports, travel, races, etc., expect to see commercials live and in person at each event.
Sample: The Reds are playing the Dodgers, it’s the 3rd inning, Reds have the bases loaded the batter hits a long drive to right field that looks like it’s out of reach but wait, time for a 5 minute commercial break everything stops, the ball, the right fielder, the base runners, the clock. On to the field comes Flo from Progressive with her crew to do a live 5 minute commercial and to obtain hundreds of phone numbers from guests for future ads. The clock restarts after 5 minutes and the ball lands back by the warning track and it looks like a grand slam might be in the works but wait after 2 runners cross the plate it’s time out for a quick 3 minute commercial on Auto Warranties as several automobiles line up between first and second base. Time for a beer and a hot dog. Or maybe a love scene in a Broadway play with the male lead singing one of your favorite songs to the girl he loves but stop it’s time for a 7 minute Liberty Mutual commercial where you only pay for what you use with the man and his celebrated animal partner telling you all about saving on car insurance. You get the picture. It’s gonna get worse before it gets better. Be careful you could end up in a commercial.
