WELL, THAT'S...REASSURING

So here's a commercial I saw this morning:


What the creeping hell? Wasn't Hugo Weaving's character in The Matrix (there were no sequels, SHUT UP), Agent Smith, supposed to be the villain? And aren't people already terrified and baffled by the US health care system? How, then, is a commercial which basically depicts the health care system being taken over by Agent Smith(s) supposed to make people feel good? About anything? I eagerly await the next commercial in this series, in which Weaving will seal someone's mouth shut or implant a squirming robot shrimp into their torso. All in the name of improving GE's profit margins American health care, of course.

I'm glad I'm not the only one who's been feeling the same way about this ad.

There are a lot of ads lately that I don't understand the depictions of the product or the intended consumers.
