I know, they're just commercials

Before you say anything, I understand that they're commercials, and animation at that, but I find the Air Wick commercials disturbing. How on earth could an elephant be married to a centipede? Or an octopus and a walrus? And the latter couple had a baby. We know the baby has tenticles, but does it also have tusks and whiskers? What kind of ugly ass child is that?

Yes, I have given way too much thought to this subject. I do that sometimes.

On an unrelated note, I googled "jackolantern" with no spaces and was presented with the image of some guy's full frontal. Not sure of the connection.

i don't like those commercials either.

the most disturbing two commercials on tv though are the stacker commercial with the army guy ("you're gonna need that energy now that i'm home!") and the fruit of the loom one where he sings about a boy in pure white briefs.

ew and wrong.

I think my google is different than yours... I don't get any male full frontal when I Search for jackolantern.

This isn't the first time something like this has happened with me.

I don't get full frontal either. I get jackolanterns.

I thought *I* watch too much t.v.

I googled from my phone, so that could be the reason...but I love that everyone then went ahead to try to get some full frontal viewing. Kids--it wasn't pretty and certainly not worth viewing.

I'm glad I'm not the only one disturbed by the stacker commercial. The whole thing has a "When I hit my wife I feel like a big man" vibe.

Let's move beyond the idiocy and the ultimately destructive nature of what can only be a doomed relationship. Let's ignore that to go straight to the device itself, which will spray air freshener every 9, 18, or 36 minutes. I have only this to say: if you find yourself needing to spray your house with air freshener every nine minutes, it's time to move. No amount of lavender vanilla is going to mask something that strong. Forget the cucumber melon, it's time to pack your things and find a house that doesn't wreak so horribly that you have to spray air freshener every nine minutes.

Disturbing items I won't go into at this point:

1. It's the ELEPHANT wife who is complaining that the CENTIPEDE husband smells. (?)

2. What's the deal with 9, 18, and 36? What kind of intervals are those? What happened to good old 10, 20, and 30?

3. The elephant wife is portrayed as the perpetually cleaning housewife. Is this still 1950? Did the Elephant Liberation Movement mean nothing?
