Here in the UK I am going mental when the voiceovers in adverts talk as if we are 3 yr olds. The worst was Tesco, using a woman who had a very child
like voice already speaking literally as if she was talking to very small children.
Other adverts do the same with imagery, sometimes I ask my husband if this is a kid's program or an advert. People jumping, colourful and often
accompanied by this horrid lilt of a voice that your aunty used to do when you were small.
Infantilisation of the nation is well and truly here. Couple that with the craze for "onesies" [or baby/toddler suits to call them what they really
are], worn by adults. I sometimes really despair.
The worst is that most people do not notice...sad.
