Changing Channels

I’ve been meaning to write about this one for some time, but wasn’t quite sure how to address it.

Is the ad for Snickers, the one where two sharks “discuss” the difference of how people tasted, and decide the person who ate the candy bar tasted better, in bad taste, so to speak?

My first reaction was it was a very funny and clever ad.

Over time, especially as I heard about more shark attacks, I began to change my opinion.

I bet the ad ISN’T funny to anyone who has been attacked by a shark or their family members who have to deal with the ramifications of such an attack.

The ad has already had a good, long run but perhaps it’s time to pull it off the airwaves.

Am I, as I do at times, making too much of this?

What do you think?
