This is one time of year when I am glad I don't have a TV! (yet)
And very little family left, so I get to avoid malls. Though going thru them with a Walkman and headphones playing Beethoven might be an idea.
I think there should be a national TV boycott - Nov 15 to Dec 25 (longer if you don't want to hear about all the Boxing Day sales!)
Sadly, these bad ads worked - they are REMEMBERED, and so is the brand name.
