What Sucks...New Kleenex Commercials

What is wrong with us?

This is a tissue commercial, right? Or is it a short film about how easy it is to recruit people for cults? Maybe is a documentary about how many lonely people there are out there who’ll talk to anybody who will listen to them. I can’t really tell either way, I only hope everyone in it is getting their SAG card.

Think someone in the Kleenex’s marketing department is feeling a little self-important these days? Are they trying to get me to look at a tissue commercial and say “this film changed my life”? Are tissues this important, cause earlier today about 50 million teenagers across the country spanked into one while looking at Lohan’s latest nip slip. Where’s their couch in the street commercial?

Hey Kleenex, get over yourself- you catch snot!

By the way, where the hell was this filmed? Depression-ville, USA? Somebody send a team of shrinks over there STAT.

although it pains me to disagree with you, I gotta say that commercial makes me happy.

I'm sitting here suffering from the most vile and vicious flu that I've ever had the misfortune to be struck down by, and all I can think of is how I could show those sad buggers on the couch what it really means to use a tissue.
By the time I started phlgeming infected mucus all over the "Good Listener" those Ad excecs would have signed us to a feature film - I'll show them humanity!

I think that is more information than any of us needed to know.

i thought it was funny how they kept cuttng back to that one guy's gradual breakdown. i felt bad for him, the editors were picking on him.

I hate the bride. Are dead puppies supposed calm her down? They play it every 15 minutes and it is very irritating. So I guess kleenex wants to be associated with irratants.
