dude, i hate that commercial from tim horton's. it's the one where this guy goes to pick up the paper or something and these roosters start chasing him. two very fit girls are jogging together and they can't cross a bridge because there are a ton of roosters there. in the end, everyone is chased by roosters to tim horton's, to have the new egg/sausage/cheese sandwich on an english muffin for $2 something. i hate this commercial and think it's stupid.
ok, so here's my thinking:
a.) roosters do chickens. as in have sex with them.
b.) chickens lay eggs and make more chickens.
c.) we steal the eggs and fry them up and serve them on english muffins with more dead animal (or combination of a bunch of gross parts of dead animals ground into snausage) with cow pus cheese.
why would roosters chase humans into tim hortons so that the humans could consume large quantities of fried dead birds? it's just gross for me.
i felt the same way when that movie "chicken run" came out. burger king had this campaign where they were like, "save the chickens! eat beef!" or something.
i feel like the use of birds as a wake-up call that i need to eat dead baby birds is gross. i hate that commercial so much. the thing is, obviously somebody (or a team of somebodies) worked long and hard on that commercial idea and people thought it would work. why would they not think it might be offensive? or is it that they don't care? maybe the average american doesn't see the connection, and they might find me a bit too sensitive. but isn't there a need for greater recognition of what people are eating?
grrrr... it just really grosses me out. what do ya'll think?
