Commercials and Quizzes

The following commercials either make me want to scream or just confuse me...

1. VW "Safe Happens" commercials

The people are talking and then they get hit from the side. I hated them before. I hate them even MORE now that they talk about the commercials themselves before getting hit. I know the point is "look how safe our cars are, these people are not even hurt!" but to ME the commercial says "if you buy this car, no matter how safe you drive, crazy killer drivers will T-bone you when you least expect it!" I hate them! I have only been in 2 accidents in my life (you may be shocked after riding with me that I haven't been in more), one was a very minor fender bender and is why I need to get my left blinker replaced and the other was when I hit a deer out of nowhere in the CITY not by a mountain but both scared the crap out of me and I hate those commercials so much.

2. Sunsilk "Get Hairapy" commercials
I have no problem with the mocking of girls and assigning them the appropriate hair products. It's the narrator size. Like a little bus purse goes buy and he says "there's my ride." Now I guess I saw that the camera was down below eye level but I just thought it was the wanna be Queer Eye guys and that that they were just not trained camera people. I did not realize we were supposed to assume that we were following the vision of MINIATURE Gay guys? The actual bottles? Are THEY talking? WHAT IS GOING ON? I do NOT understand! SOMEONE explain the concept of the tiny, fashion-suave, implied-homosexuals riding around in various purses handing out dots of color. PLEASE?

Besides that, more little quiz things. (Curse you, Hermy!!!!!)
