Here Is My Pitch For You To Watch "The Gruen Transfer" But Its Not Unsellable
The Gruen Transfer (TGT) is a show about advertising, how it works, and how it works on us. Hosted by the inimitable Wil Anderson, TGT decodes and defuses the commercial messages that swirl through our lives, with the help of a panel of ad industry experts. This Show Sounds Boring From The Plot Synopsis But You Truly Have To See It To Believe It. I Love This Show Its A Pity It Only Runs 9 Episodes A Year Except This Year It Ran A 4 Week Spin-Off Called "Gruen Nation" Where They Take The P!$$ Out Of Political Ads & That Is The Same With This Show. I Love This Show Its The Only Half Decent Thing To Watch On TV Besides HIMYM & Re-Runs Of Joss Whedon Shows. Now All Thats Left Is TO Give You An Example Of Their Comedy One Episode They Were Taking The P!$$ Out Of Infomercials & They Came Across A Fart-Retardent Blanket(I AM NOT MAKING THIS UP!) & It Pretty Much Said "Are You Sick Of Your Partner (I Forget What They Say After That But It Meant Farting) Then Buy The New Fart-Retardent Blanket" & Will Anderson Said At The End Of The Add "Happy Anniversary" It Cracks Me Up. I Don't Know About Anyone Else But I Personally Am Not Affected By Advertising.
Better Get That Blanket.
