Madison Avenue Cartoon Review

I think a good barometer for the collective intelligence of a society might be the number of cartoon characters in advertising. Let me be clear, I’m not talking about marketing to kids. An animated rabbit is  understandable if you’re trying to sell sugary cereal to an 8-year old. I’m talking about products that are strictly within the purview of adulthood. Think about it, how many car insurance commercials have you seen that utilize a cartoon spokesperson? Last night cartoon mucus tried to sell me a cold remedy. How stupid do they think we are? Whether it’s a middle-aged woman being led around by an animated bladder, or a Muppet hocking mortgages, the answer seems pretty clear. We’re apparently not smart enough to be spoken to like adults.

On a completely unrelated note, do you think the guy that does the voice of the cartoon snot drives a nicer car than me?
