I was minding my own business, watching the Apprentice (the only reality TV show I tolerate), and cutting up little pieces of fabric when out of the blue I saw the creepiest commercial.
A group of boys playing in the park looks up to see a minivan pull up- ok, innocent enough so far. Music is playing…I recognize it as “Stacey’s Mom” by Fountains of Wayne. Excellent, I think, the music doesn’t suck.
The driver (mom to one of the kids, we assume) gets out and is shown in slow motion sauntering over toward the boys, a knowing smile on her lips. She stops and pushes the button on the automatic side door opener over her shoulder and the van opens. Inside, we find a cooler full of big-name soft drink.
The boys run to the van, grab a soda, and stand around oogling this mom. Mom stands there with a soda, too, and gives what I thought was a not so innocent look back to the boys. It was then that I thought- “Oh my God, those poor kids have just been lured into the hands of Mrs. Robinson!”
Maybe it was the package of the visual with the music- I don’t know. But I really did find it creepy.
Did anyone else see it?
