Last night I was watching my DVR'd recording of Days of our Lives. I've actually resorted to recording it and watching it at night, since summer TV suckity sucks!
Anyway, as I'm watching, one of the characters begins eating a Hershey's Bliss chocolate. The bag is strategically placed in order to get the maximum product placement possible. As if that wasn't bad enough, her TV husband walks in the room and says, "What are you eating?" She replies, "Hershey's Bliss. Do you want one? They're so creamy and indulgent!"
Ok, really? Must you be so blatant with your sell-out?
And this wasn't the first time I'd seen this on my soap. Last week, one of the characters was eating Chex Mix (with the bag, again, strategically placed). When describing it to her lover (ugh!) who had never partaken of Chex Mix before, she said "It's a delightful crunchy and salty snack!"
Did you just throw up your mouth a bit? I did. I mean, I love Chex Mix just as much as the next guy, but really? "Delightful crunchy and salty?"
And yes, I know that soaps are cheesy as it is, but it's gotten to the point, especially with the current story line, that I'm beginning to wonder if it should be categorized as comedy. LOL.
Do you watch a soap? Which one?
