Page Fourteen - Blytheville (Ark.) Courier Newa - Monday, May », 1M7 Abigail Van Bnren Chorus of Howls Over Commercials DEAR ABBY: A million thanks for printing. Nauseated's letter complaining about some of the TV commercials which advertising agencies shove down the v i e w e r s' throats. It's high time somebody voiced a complaint. As a woman of Swedish extraction, I find one coffee commercial extremely hard to take. A young married couple is shown at breakfast. The man takes a sip of coffee after which he registers obvious displeasure. Then the young wife run tearfully to her neighbor, "Mrs. Olson," a motherly-type. The inexperienced wife begs Mrs. Olson for her "secret" in making good coffee, whereupon Mrs. Olson, in the worst possible Swedish accent reveals that she buys the coffee that is "mountain grown." Heaven preserve us! ALSO NAUSEATED DEAR ABBY: I am glad you mentioned how offensive some TV commercials are. My pet peeve happens to be a candy commercial. It shows a man eating a candy bar while he tells how delicious it Is. He keeps talking about the candy while he stuffs his face with more and more of it. It is positively revolting! I have tried to teach my children not to talk with their mouths full, and then they see a grown man doing exactly what I have told them they must never do. Please tell the candy people that I am one mother who will -not buy their candy as long as they put such commercials on TV. SOUTH BEND MOTHER DEAR ABBY: I'll bet the people who spend fortunes on TV advertising would be sick if they knew how few people are actually sold by it. In the first place, you get all the products mixed up. They all make the same claims. For in stance, I couldn't tell you to save my life which cigaret tastes good like a cigaret should, or which one is longer, or has the real tobacco flavor, is milder, cooler, has the filter tip, or which is the world's largest selling cigaret. After seeing people who would rather fight than switch — and others who happily ate their hats, no One knows which programs are brought to us by which cigaret company. I have more confidence in advertising I can read and reread. I don't go for this "now you see it, now you don't," stuff you get on television. NO SUCKER IN FARGO DEAR ABBY: A male's way of retaliating to TV advertisers who treat their viewers as morons is as follows: In all fairness I carefully observe all commericals — once. If the message abuses my sensitivity or mature understanding, I carefully note the product being advertised, and in this way I decide which product not to buy. My theory: Why should I reward insult? PEEJAY DEAR ABBY: About TV commericals: I hate to tune in on a TV program and be subjected to a commercial which brings a bunch of screaming kids into my living room. I have a houseful of my own and I certainly don't need any more. No one will ever sell me a headache remedy by giving me a headache!
