Do they make you uncomfortable?

WTF OP? Honestly!

What are they precisely?

This has got to be a Trumptard troll thread. If anything these commercials give me hope in this new land called Trumplandia.

There are more interracial relationships on TV than in real life.

Because Datalounge thinks it's still 1952.

I’ve noticed a lot of them over the past year. It’s nice to see.

How sad, OP, to be so desperate for attention.

What's your obsession with race, moron?

It's the Race Troll back up to her tiresome old tricks again. Obsessive and demented. Grinds them out like shit burgers.

No but you poll makes me uncomfortable, you do realize it is 2020 don't you OP? What decade are you living in?
|by Kafe' Olay||reply 12||05/21/2020|
OP lives in Mississippi (or, Moscow)
|by Kafe' Olay||reply 13||05/21/2020|
Why on earth would they?
|by Kafe' Olay||reply 14||05/21/2020|
Not only do they not make me uncomfortable, I hardly even notice them when they're on, just like regular commercials.
|by Kafe' Olay||reply 15||05/21/2020|
Fuck you op. Go eat your potato and drink your vodka.

Wake me up when they have gay couples in commercials.

When this Cheerios ad debuted in 2013, it was considered controversial. Now, it would go nearly unnoticed.

R17 There are gay couples in TV ads for Prep.
|by Kafe' Olay||reply 19||05/21/2020|
I notice it when the ad comes on, but not nearly as much as I noticed just a couple of years ago.
|by Kafe' Olay||reply 20||05/21/2020|
R6 Even in 1952 there was Lucy and Desi... some people want it to be like the 1860's
|by Kafe' Olay||reply 21||05/21/2020|
I have noticed it over the past year and it's everywhere. I find it glaringly pandering. Why not just cast a black couple or an Indian couple, etc. It's not like if I see a black couple enjoying Cheerios I'm going to think- oh, that cereal's only for black people. Who thinks like that? I can't even imagine racists do.

R22 Look around... it's not uncommon for people of different backgrounds to be married

It doesn’t make me uncomfortable. However, the commercials are in excess. And I’m starting to wonder

No, of course it isn't. But the point is that advertisers are almost fetishizing it lately.

In other words, it makes R24 uncomfortable.

I was just watching an old 80s movie, Looker, about a device that hypnotizes consumers into wanting to buy a particular product in a commercial. They were doing a demonstration early on in the film and they showed exactly where the viewer's eye went throughout the entire commercial. It revealed that he was totally focused on the model and not at all on the product.
it reminded me of the whole interracial couple explosion in commercials. These manufacturers are going for woke points at the expense of selling their product. If I see a white person, if I see an Asian couple, if I see a black family, I barely note it and I focus on what they're selling. If I see an interracial couple, it completely puts the focus on the fact that the advertiser is trying to be trendy and I completely forget what the product is that they're selling. And it's hard to qualify it because it's not that the couple or family is interracial, it's the overuse of it. Or the trend chasing.
When I was a kid and more people watched broadcast television, we always knew when a "trend" had reached peak saturation (not that we knew to call it that, we just knew it had become uncool), and that was when you saw it in a McDonalds commercial. Everything from disco to breakdancing to valley girl speak, if McDonalds centered a commercial around it, we had already moved off from it. This whole topic reminds me of that.
