Hollywood Tries...Reverse Psychology?


Honestly, this almost too long to endure.

I'm reminded of that scene in "Scrooged" when the ad for IBC's holiday special implores viewers to watch because..."your life might just DEPEND ON IT!"

The funny thing is that the under-30 target market will - for the most part - kind of snicker and say "yeah, whatever". They ALWAYS do.

Okay, I have to link the clip if for no other reason than that Bill Murray is awesome.

Wow. That was way too long.

Am I the only one who thought this was extremely condescending? I know this isn't targeted at me, but, Damn, these assholes really think people are stupid.

One slip I noticed--some non-entity was blathering on about the "right to choose" which she followed with "right to life!"
