Ellis & Barnes: Serious Mothers!

You can hardly smell the death!


My apologies. I have been busy ignoring the blog and lets face it...all other aspects of my "personal" life for more lofty ambitions like keeping my almost 2 year old alive and amused or sleeping. (I love you sleep.)

Now, watch this.

"The lavender scent really covers up the smell of the rotting corpses hidden in the couch."


"Surprise! Doesn't it smell great! Now we kill you!"


"You're right, it smells like lotion. Now it puts the lotion in the basket."

G R O S S (spell it out) My skin is crawling after watching this. There are so many things wrong with this commercial.

1. It looks like the kind of room that you will be killed in. It doesn't help that you are blind folded and disoriented by what you smell not matching what you see. Its like thinking you are drinking a glass of water but it turns out to be Sprite and then you are murdered.

2. You now have bedbugs. Trust me.

3. Calling this an "experiment."

4. Go watch it again. Pay attention to the two women at the end. The look on their face when they take their blindfold off clearly says "we are not safe." Then the blond says "hello?" How many horror movies start with a blond in an empty space saying "Hello? Helloooooo?"

There is something so violent about this ad. I mean have the creators never seen Law and Order SVU or, well, any other crime procedural on TV? This room looks like a season ratings booster "rape-a-torium" set where you aren't sure if our tough as nails heroine will get out alive so she can spend the rest of her life acting as if it never happened.

I want my spray smell to cover all my dirty little secrets which include and have included; cigarettes, weed, cat shit, dirty diapers, and chicken that should have been taken out two days ago. My list does not include crime scenes.

I would like the commercial more if in fact they were using the "Thai Dragon Fruit" scent (what the fuck?) at an actual crime scene or an embalming parlor.

Ick, ick and double ick.

All the "Meadows and Rain" in the world will not remove the stink this commercial has left behind.
