I love/hate it when advertisements successfully target me.
It sucks to feel like merely a part of a demographic who thinks, feels and buys the same, but it rules to be taken by surprise by, oh, I don't know, a Hallmark commercial that makes me cry a little at my desk.
In a spot for Valentine's Day, Hallmark asked six couples how they knew they found “the one.”
As a viewer, I went into this with skepticism and scoffs, but by the time I heard each story, I was gently stroking my computer screen wishing everyone a long life of health and happiness.
One woman recalls,
OH, WERE YOU?! THAT SOUNDS LIKE A GODDAMN FAIRYTALE. I have to go, sorry.
There's something in my eye. There are, like, a lot of things in my eye.
