There are lots of annoying things in this world, but nothing has made me go WTF quite like this commercial from our friends at Crest Toothpaste. Ten
years ago you didn't have to endure all the neon white smiles and commercials for whitening products. Thanks to corporate America we have a whole new
created industry we DIDN'T NEED.
So why is this commercial particularly vile? It caters to the worst aspects of human nature. We have this vane and superficial James Dean knock off
who probably hasn't ever been with a woman in his life tell us how he got a 'girl like this' who probably is a raging bitch and dropped out of high
school, but hey look at her...she is hot! Woohoo!
Here is the deep and moving dialog from the video for those of you that don't want to waste 15 seconds of your life listening to this moron talk about
his totally awesome, abnormally white teeth.
Loser guy: "You know what women love? Strippers. How do you think I got a girl like this?"
Announcer: "If you strip, romance will follow. Crest Whitestrips remove years of stains. Try Whitestrips and see what stripping can do for
Keep it classy, Crest.

I saw one a few years ago where a "hot" guy is walking through a metal detector...it beeps. Fast forward to the end, the two "sexy" security women
have the guy stripped to his boxers...he walks through, and they wink at the camera and follow the guy down the hall....what is wrong with us?!?!
I saw something a bit like this in my high school days. Don't ask what I was doing. It's as disturbing now as it was then and I think I know what the
advertising boys are doing in their offices. Gotta be to come up with this.

Speaking of commercials, do you remember maybe 25 years ago there was a commercial where the announcer spoke in a markedly rapid pace? It was almost
kind of a joke because it was so much faster than all the other commercials at the time. But it caught on so that over the years now most commercials
have rapid speaking patter to get in more and more sales pitches fast fast fast.
But here is another thing I have noticed. When people with voices in lower registers talk, it takes longer for the words to come out because the sound
is coming from down deep in the chest and the vocal cords vibrate a a low rate. This isn't fast enough. Now more and more the pitches are given by
people with high voices who use their upper throats to talk. This serves to not only prattle on at a faster rate but also to favor announcers with
high pitched voices, mainly women with irritatingly high voices that pierce through your brain like a buzz saw.
