It Sneaks Up On You

Let me tell you about a radio commercial I heard today. Went something like this"

Sue: "Bob I was rear-ended yesterday."
Bob: "Huh?"
Sue: "Someone hit my car yesterday. What did you think I meant?"
Bob: "That’s terrible Sue. You should take your car to (I forget the name of the body shop) for repairs."

First, the person playing Sue had a rather sexy voice. Second, do you see where that interaction was leading the listener? I have mentioned before that it isn’t the normal shows that are problems with explicit/obscene content: it is those that sneak up on you. The last thing I wanted to hear was a radio commercial which was hinting at anal sex. Was this necessary in order to get people to go to the body shop (no pun intended)? I doubt it.

Here is the thing that annoyed me: I couldn’t change the channel. The commercial snuck up on me. If I am listening to the Bob and Tom Show, I know there will be some sexual references in the material, some which I do not care for. But it is my choice. The commercials aren’t.

    I hate that kind of stuff too. It especially ticks me off when my son is in the truck with me and he hears that crap.

    You know what’s even more horrid than that?

    When your sitting in the car eating a hamburger (or some other fast food) and a commercial comes on the radio for toe nail fungus or hemmorhoids (sp?).


    I haven’t heard any particularly ‘sexy’ commercials. Maybe ‘cuz I listen to the local ‘more conservative’ ‘less liberal’ station.


    I’ll have to listen more closely from now on. Maybe I’m desensitized or something…….

  3. It usually doesn’t bother me, but this one was a little too much. No need for this in a car repair commercial. Hooters has classier commercials. I’m not a prude or anything, but I stopped listening to a late afternoon rock station cause the DJ just goes way to far with his sexual references. Just too much.

    I listen to talk radio. The one I can count on hearing every morning is for “Zim’s Crack Cream”. Yes, that’s the name of the product. It’s a lotion for cracked skin.

    Get your mind out of the gutter. That’s almost the same place my car went the first time I heard the commercial.

    SNL did a spot about this stuff a while back.

    You can say “from, around, close to, approaching, etc.” “my ass”, But you can’t say “IN my ass”.

    Stupid rules from the FCC have never worked.
