Great! Just what I want to explain to my boys some day! I hope these ads die a painful death - quickly!

They just sort of freak me out. With the first one, I didn't realize until part way through what the hand was suppose to represent. My vertical smile! How wonderful! {Head-thunk}

I know it! I heard that it was seen before a Harry Potter movie so, ummmm, yeah, no kids there! It seems like they don't screen commercials for who might be watching the show at the time. Someone else mentioned that it must have been a guy who came up with that ad. Some of these things really, really need to be approved by women before they run with the idea if that's the case. Do they still do testing audiences for ads anymore?

We had Harry Potter on at my parents' house last weekend -- how morfified would everyone have been if that ad had come on?
