Modern commercials…

OK, I was walking through the living room for some reason and I came within audio range of the TV, which always seems to be on.  I heard snippets of two commercials.  One was a toilet bowl cleaner and one was some sort of fast food french fries.  Both were speaking in the first person.  “I am the new Western barbecue chicken fries with cheese dip, blah, blah..

I admit that I was mildly amused in the ’60s when I saw talking animals on TV but talking toilet bowl cleaner and curly fries are too much.  HEY!  Don’t talk to me!  You are a fucking vegetable!

Seriously.  Has everyone’s IQ digressed to the point of taking dietary advice from fried potatoes?
