Meddies, Anyone?

Friday evening I watch a couple of o.t.a. programs.

Last evening I had the following for my viewing pleasure: 

and my noon news today: Humira.

What in the ever-loving blue-eyed world? Any government that cannot or will not control this sort of thing is either ineffectual or immoral. imho

George watches the local evening news and the same commercials run - wonder how they figured out who their audience was at 6pm? (You threw in Trivago for fun, eh?)

Grace, yes; but there was a Trivago commercial, I think the only one that wasn't paid for by the pharmaceutical industry. "Trintellix" was new to me, and just so you know, I have no idea what any of them "treat." Oh, the pocketbook; reduces swelling.

I am amazed that these ads work. Can't believe big pharma would pay to advertise if they didn't.

vanilla said...

KCBob, likewise. People must surely suspend belief, and discernment died long ago, anyway.

TV ads are lost on me. I'm good at tuning them out and I often mute them. The non-medication "word" related to travel often pops up on my computer when I'm searching for a hotel, so I knew that one.

vanilla said...

Vee, lost on me, too, which is why I have no idea what the stuff does.

They attempt to peddle drugs and life insurance. I frequently time shift and so am able to fast forward through the commercials. When I don't there's the "mute" button.
