Idiotic commercial

September 15th, 2010 at 02:25 pm

I just watched a comercial on youtube for contacts.

some kid with glasses in a school hall, then I ignored it to watch the video (Tim Hawkins on homeschooling halarious)

then glanced back and it says "I see him in the halls every day"

then she morphs to not having glasses, and flips to "Someday I will have the guts to say HI"

now I missed something in between, but....

really a commercial that says you can only talk to folk with contacts?

I wear glasses, and I do recall not liking them as a teen. I wore contacts for a few years, during which time my eyes went from kinda bad to horrible.

I have no objection to letting my kids try contacts if desired. I object to straight up saying contacts are required for popularity or whatever.

Movies that show girls and geeks getting makeovers that always require contacts are more than enough thanks.

    I think the commercial is trying to say that if you wear eyeglasses you MAY feel more self-conscious and MIGHT be less apt to instigate a conversation with someone you don't know. Especially a fellow teen of the opposite sex.

    I started wearing glasses in my 20s (probably needed them before that) and I could never wear contacts because they were not covered on my parents' insurance. We would go to the places that were selling the cheapest frames possible so that the whole thing was covered. I always wanted cooler glasses (not contacts, ironically). Now I only wear contacts when I play ice hockey. Glasses fog up too much.
