We have been inundated lately with a most idiotic commercial for laser eye surgery by the Medownick group. To be more exact, it’s what I guess it’s supposed to be. There’s something mentioned about a place to lose your glasses, but I’m not quite sure why.
A couple of kids who resemble one another are seen throwing a pair of spectacles around. Are they brother and sister? One of them shouts that he can’t see but he’s quite happy about that. The other one, his sister perhaps, suggests that he should trample the spectacles. She’s finding all this very amusing as does her stupid brother.
In another scene some idiot has gone swimming in the surf with his glasses and lost them. This is also good news, apparently, but then we are told that we should lose our glasses at Medownick.
I have written in the past that some commercials may become popular because they are so annoying and yet their message gets through. This one, however, makes one feel that if Medownick approve such idiotic ads, then how good is their judgement?
Will one go to their practice and be operated on and then leave crying “I can’t see anything! I can’t see anything……?
