Last night someone posted something on facebook and it is the scariest thing going around these days. No it isn't a TV show either nor, and this is hard to believe, is it politics. No, it's a commercial.
Every time this thing pops up on my TV I have to change the channel or cover my ears. It is everything I can do to keep from running in my room and hiding under the bed or in the farthest reaches of my closet.
Now I really thought that I was the only one who felt that way. I had no idea that there are others out there who are as bothered by this image as I am. So who or what is it? Well I hesitate to say but if you've seen the old guy being paraded on the commercials for a certain fast food chain you have the what I'm talking about. Damn are they trying to scare away customers? I actually stopped there tonight to grab something quick for dinner because my husband and I had a long day and both of us were tired. I kept peeping around corners afraid this ghoulish representation of a once well loved figure was going to pop out at me with a hatchet or something. The back door opened on the place at one point and I damn near peed my pants.
What's the deal with companies wanting to raise the dead? Do we not know that Marilyn Monroe, Clark Gable, and Elvis Presley are dead? To be honest there are a lot of Presley impersonators out there so that one isn't quiet so freaky.
Come on people, leave the dead buried. I can't but wonder what that dear old gentleman would say about what they are doing to his image. If there is anything I would censor regarding a child it would be those damn commercials.
I'm all for a good horror story. Hell I write horror stories and I cut me eyeteeth on horror. I've loved horror all my life so if I tell you this goes beyond frightening believe it. I think we should raise up our voices and make them rethink they promotional avenue and turn down a different path. Don't be like those stooges in the movies and continue along a road that leads to definite doom. This one may end with murder and mayhem.
