On Western Union

I was at a loss for something to blog today, until about six minutes ago.

Now, I've commented on horrible advertising before. But tonight I must point to something particularly unsettling. Listen to just the first few seconds and you'll see what I mean.

Someone honestly thought this was going to be a good idea. Either they were oblivious to how horrible it makes Western Union seem, or they were so twisted to think it would be so gorilla, in your face to avoid all the platitudes and tell you flat out that

Money will "make your love tangible."

I- I really don't have anything more I can say about this. It's just reprehensible in such a simple, explicit way.

Today was just a day of evil, wasn't it, Mel?
