A new commercial straight from hell
This is how the globalists want us to want ICE CREAM, and every other pleasurable thing
Once upon a time—or, to be more specific, up until the Seventies—commercial advertising tended to present the product as your ticket of admittance into an old-fashioned human paradise, where everyone was lovely, all your animal desires would be deliciously fulfilled, and all your social longings satisfied. Thus, back then, the allure of advertising was nostalgic and utopian, (falsely) promising that this Big Mac or Hershey Bar, Chevrolet or Cadillac, Coke or Pepsi (or whatever), would take you straight to Heaven.
From the Thirties, on the other hand, advertising also often promised to release us from a certain all-too-human Hell—of rejection, isolation, shame, embarrassment, due to your (unless you buy the product now) Bad Breath, Body Odor, dandruff, “unsightly wrinkles” or whatever other sign of your foul, failing body might forever cut you off from Everybody Else, and leave you all alone for all eternity.
That corny human pitch began to disappear from advertising in the Seventies, for several reasons too complex to deal with here. Starting then, the pitch grew ever more perverse—not pleasant but unpleasant, not appetizing but unappetizing, not sociable but anti-social, as the product was, increasingly, now proffered not as something that would take you to a better place (or save you from that Other Place), but as the Thing that you must not just use (eat, drink, wear, ride), but emulate, so that you too can be as hard and clean, as glossy and autonomous—in short, to seem as powerful—as It is. Now advertising asked us to give up on human pleasures, and instead become like those almighty Things ourselves, “happy” just to be so “perfect,” and the center of attention.
Now watch this new commercial for Halo Top—an ice cream. What prompted Halo Top, and its ad agency, to think that anyone who watches this nightmarish spot would want to taste that stuff, or even think about it? Or are there (now) people who would find this hellish spectacle alluring? If not, this campaign is a big mistake.
But if there is a market for an ice cream sold that way, it would be a victory for those inhuman powers who want us eating ice cream not because it’s yummy, but because the robots tell us to, and anyone who won’t do what they say is old and sour and creepy, like that non-compliant old woman. She probably won’t eat Bill Gates’ fake meat, either; nor, obviously, does she like being stuck in that ice-cold white room (as cold and white as Halo Top), completely cut off from her family, or any other human company (like all those older folks who’ve died of broken hearts since COVID cut them off in hospitals and nursing homes).
In short, this ad comes straight from hell—the hell that Gates and all the rest of them have planned for us. (Scroll down to see how robots are now being used to pacify the old, and obviate their need for any human family.) The authors of that hell are more than welcome to it; but we will never buy it.
Elder Un-Care: Robots Seen As Surrogates For Human Connection
March 16, 2022
Technology is replacing humanity and human contact, from social media to elder care. Loneliness is rampant because no amount of non-human activity can substitute for actual human contact. When elderly parents die alone, hopefully the robot will notify children and authorities. ⁃ TN Editor
“ElliQ, good morning.”
“Good morning, Susan. How did you sleep?”
“I slept well, thank you.”
“That’s good. Would you like to do some exercise?
“Not now. I’m going to church. Maybe later?”
Susan Thoren didn’t like blowing off her roommate — and she could have gone for that SilverSneakers aerobics video — but she was late to see her pastor. Maybe Susan would hang with ElliQ later, after she took her Shih Tzu, Little One, out for a walk on the lake near the Largo, Fla., retirement community where she lives.
Not during the walk — as Elli was fond of reminding, she can’t walk; she doesn’t have legs. She’s just an AI in the shape of a lamp.
On Tuesday, an Israeli company, Intuition Robotics, commercially released ElliQ after a long beta-use period. Billed as an AI companion for the elderly, ElliQ offers soothing encouragement, invitations to games, gentle health prodding, music thoughts and, most important, a friendly voice that learns a person’s ways and comforts them in their solitude.
Welcome to the digitally accompanied future.
How could anyone think that commercial is compelling?
Ewww. I'll still eat ice cream. But nothing by Delish or Ben & Jerry's. The way things are going I'll be eating more homemade from local ingredients.
