If you all thought the whole "look-at-me-I'm-wearing-cat-beds-for-bedroom-slippers" thing was funny, you'll probably appreciate this as well. He did it this past weekend but I forgot about it until I went into my cabinet this morning for some pore minimizer. (Seriously, do those things sometimes open up over night and swallow up small children??)
First, a bit of background. There's this commercial on TV over here for toilet paper that totally skeeves me out (The commercial, not the toilet paper. The toilet paper is divine.) It features this toddler they've dressed up in a 3-piece suit and a combover. He appears to be running the toilet paper company and talks lots of business-y type talk but in this stupid creepy little kid voice with a British accent no less. Trust me when I tell you that it is totally wrong on every level. It's stupid, creepy, and the kid looks/sounds like a total freak. And please don't get me wrong. I love kids! Especially toddlers! But they should not be dressing up in suits and running toilet paper companies. They should be wearing little mini Ralph Lauren Polo shirts and little Baby Gap chino shorts and playing on playgrounds and stuff. Am I right??? AM I???
So, imagine my horror when they started putting this kid's picture on the actual packages of toilet paper. Yet I refuse to switch brands because, people, this toilet paper is the best on the market over here. And I'm not one to skimp on comfort in that area. So I'll tolerate that creepy kid on the package until this ridiculous marketing campaign is over. But THIS, friends, is flat out inexcusable:
I literally yelled when I opened my cabinet Saturday morning. Meanwhile, I hear Jason in the living room laughing like he'd just pulled off the most elaborate prank of all time. The laugh of pure evil I tell you.
