Do you remember like, a handful of posts ago how I was making fun of the TERRIFYING ads on Facebook? And how they're ridiculous and until they stop being ridiculous I refuse to listen to people who say "advertising on Facebook doesn't work"?
Here's the newest ad in a series of things that make me LOL.
We are supposed to believe this is a real News Report? Ahahahahahahaa.
Those TVs in the background look less like a newsroom set-up and more like maybe this photo was taken at a Best Buy.
Also? This is a hard-hitting piece of journalism about...berries? BERRIES HAVE BEEN EXPOSED! With all the flashing colors and exclamation points you'd think that someone had found a sex tape of the raspberries doing unspeakable things. Or like, maybe the blackberries had sent some unbecoming texts to a Hooters waitress or something.
Oh, and speaking of Hooters waitresses. Exactly who -- or what -- are we supposed to think this "news reporter" is? When was the last time you saw a journalist on-air in a tank top? But even if we could get past her ridiculous outfit and spray-on tan and hair that, I guess, is supposed to look "professional"...
...it's her expression. Look how serious this poor Hooters waitress looks. Whatever it is that she's saying into the (still) camera looks like it's paining her. She is trying to empathize with us. She is trying to let us know that this shocking berry news is really shocking. Really, really shocking.
Mostly she just looks like she'd really like her check now.
