Maybe they'll replace them with more Viagra commercials?! :lol:
I was thinking the same thing when I first saw the article.
But wait, we can not forget commercials for Hover Round and those companies pitching catheters
Could they try to curb the advertisments for Junk movies and programs as well?
I saw the Hover Round for the first time the other day, but yeah, I've seen the catheters a billion times.
All I know is that I'm glad I have a DVR, because I simply could not deal with all the prescription drugs commercials on TV. I'd LOVE for a media company to ban them, but the amount of advertising money they'd lose would be far more substantial than the amount of money that Disney is losing by doing this.
Well that does it! No more Disney for me.
Does that say they're gonna check your Mickey?
Alas, my hero now becomes a zero.
Good for Them!
Wait, they have radio programs aimed at kids? Is Ovaltine considered a junk food?
Wait, kids have radios?
+1, Some common sense by corporations will go a lot farther than bans on jumbo drinks.
I'm glad to hear this! Our youth is only getting heavier.
As for the money they will lose, I'm sure it will be made up by companies paying for their "Mickey Stamp" on all of their "nutritious" foods... that we will find out cause cancer in about 10 years.
Except... in the threads where we have been discussing DVRs and commercial skipping... most everyone seems to think that "nobody watches commercials" anymore... so how is cutting some sponsors going to make a difference if "nobody" watches commercials?
Kids watch them when the parents aren't with them. It's the only way they can learn right from wrong.
I fast forward through commercials. I SEE what they are advertising, and if it's anything I care about, I'll stop and watch it.
You forgot the meaning of life (having the newest/coolest toy), Justin Bieber, asking the doctor for drugs is a good way of getting them, Kidz Bop, and of course, to always have your parent's permission when using their credit card to buy that item that's only $10, but costs an additional $20 in shipping and handling fees!
Parents that use the TV as a babysitter and are not aware of what their kids watch are doing more harm than the commercials are doing...
Not mine, they use ff better than I do.
My parents were completely unaware what I was watching when I was young and I turned out just fine. :jump3:
