I want to smack this kid (I’ll explain why) or Is Walgreen’s Telling Kids to get us Sick?

Apparently this particular video isn’t available anywhere on the web for me to post here but here is what’s going on: there is this Walgreen’s commercial featuring a little girl stirring some frosting in the kitchen with her grandma. The little girl serenely takes the spatula and gives it to this big dog sitting by her feet to lick since he’s looking at her with huge, begging eyes. The dog licks it intently, then the spawn of Satan director has her slip the spatula back into the bowl just as her grandma turns around and coyly licks the same dirty spatula. The little girl watches, her elbows propped up on the counter, wide-eyed and innocent, not saying a thing as the narrator informs us of the benefits of having a flu vaccine from Walgreens, to the sound of happy fuzzy music.

Such a nice, peaceful image, such a warm atmosphere, such a cute shaggy dog, such happy music considering this little shit POSSIBLY JUST FUCKIN’ KILLED HER GRANDMA AND HER WHOLE FAMILY!!!

Dogs are known for eating feces – their own, other animals’ shit and they devour human shit like it’s a grilled steak; it goes without saying that their mouths are especially nasty things. Not only that but they carry a host of diseases, worms and critters. I’ll list some of them here, just a small portion of them, only an easy copy and paste job:  Rabies, distemper, Infectious hepatitis, herpesvirus, Brucellosis, Leptospirosis, Lyme disease, Rocky Mountain spotted fever, Giardiasis, Babesiosis, trichinellosis plus a number of worms, fungi and streptococci. (see bottom of page for complete list*)

Now, not only are most of these diseases contagious, they spread to humans and some of them are deadly. Especially if you are slightly immunocompromised, like an older lady might be. So yeah, take this junk off the air, we don’t need any more bad ideas put into our kids’ heads. In fact I’m pretty sure some particularly brilliant specimens have already gotten this idea into their already vacuous skulls and put it into practice. So next time you wake up with an unexplained case of the friggin’ rabies, look at little Keersten, Britanee or Ashleeigh and ask her if she shoved your silverware into the dogs’ stinking, drooling, death-infested cesspool of a mouth. Then go sue Walgreens.

Suspension of disbelief aside, I just had a gut reaction to seeing this little girl’s mannerisms and processing what had just happened; realizing that I was watching a nauseating display of pure evil under the guise of childhood innocence. Maybe that’s why I was so negatively impacted by the commercial – the incongruence between what I was seeing and what was actually hiding behind it. I’d like to know who came up with this idea for a commercial and who supported it – are these people even in contact with the real world? Did they hear about germs or do they think the liberal media made them up?

Any kid doing this crap deserves a god damn smack over the head. I’m no supporter of corporal punishment myself, I grew up with a violent alcoholic dad, but this asshole kid deserves it, dammit and stop balking about it. America is so hypocritical – we prosecute 14 year old black kids as adults and we send people to the electric chair. But a white girl kills her grandma and it’s all cute and sweet? Please.

Then again today I had a random thought along the lines of “It’s almost like Walgreens wants to teach small kids bad values” and then I thought it would be funny if Walgreen’s execs were way more evil than I gave them credit for – more sick people, more business all around, right? Teach kids to spread these diseases and step 3, Profit? Watch out for their next commercial, featuring cute kids stealing used needles from happy, friendly homeless people and “playfully” sticking their little sister with it. I’m joking of course but  I won’t eat anything that’s been around a kid for a while now 🙂

    Lol, you took this to a whole new level of rage but I have to admit I hated this commercial as well. You’re right that it’s not available anymore, I haven’t seen it in months- I think what I immediately reacted to was, as you described above, the little girl’s total disregard for doing what I’m sure she would understand to be reprehensible to her grandmother, secretly and while showing not an ounce of regret or hesitation. Sad as well that it’s a somewhat accurate depiction of the level of control and guidance adults have over their children these days. Like asking a three-year old what he/she wants for dinner. Parents want to be buddies with their children and let the little monsters do whatever they want, meanwhile the rest of us get to smile politely and cringe.

    We have an ad in Australia that is very similar (but it’s for an animal foundation), and while it annoys the crap out of me, everyone seems to think it’s cute!
