Okay, here’s the thing. You know the lady in the ROC ad? The one who’s all “I feel like I’m in my 30’s but I’m about to turn 44”. And we’re all supposed to be so amazed because she's so much older than she looks?
She looks 44.
If I was to stand beside her, no one would think “oh, they could be the same age”. They’d think “is that her very very young mom, or her much older sister?” And that, my friend, is because she looks 44.
Now, don’t get me wrong. She has fabulous skin. Amazing skin. I’m sure people compliment her on it all the time. It’s gorgeous.
It does not, however, mean that she looks ten years younger than she is.
It’s nothing against her, at all. The ad just bugs.
You know the guy in the KFC "99p Mini Fillet" ad? No, not the singing guy - although I find him very amusing. The other guy.
It's the guy with the mini fillet burger who's standing beside the singing lady. Take a look at his face when you watch the ad.
Comedy gold, my friends. Comedy gold.
