Waste of Money:

Due to my appearance at a fundraiser, for the children, I will only review one commercial for this post.

This week’s bad ad is from Nutrisystem. I understand that hiring a famous celebrity is a great way to promote a product, but this company failed to use common sense. (I have no idea what they were thinking!)

The American public has been conditioned to think that beauty only comes in the form of a size zero. This is a complete falsity. There are too many beautiful full-figured women who lack self-confidence because they are trying to live to the unattainable goals which are created by the fashion industry. (Women need to learn to accept their natural curves!)

Nutrisystem decided to hire Janet Jackson to promote their weight loss system. This is the dumbest thing I have ever witnessed. Janet Jackson is an international sex symbol and she is the last person anyone would think of when they talk about people who need to lose weight.

The ad makes absolutely zero sense. Does Nutrisystem actually think that Janet Jackson is going to motivate someone who is overweight to sign up for their program? The commercial is more offensive than anything else.

I am not saying that skinny women are not beautiful, but I don’t think they are the only ones who are sexy; beautiful women come in all shapes and sizes. If Nutrisystem wanted to hire a spokeswoman for their campaign, they should find someone who is unhealthy; not Janet Jackson.

There is a lot more that I can say about this topic, but I am too tired to continue this post. As far as Nutrisystem goes, I do not recommend their product; their as is completely asinine! (Do yourselves a favor and boycott this clueless company!)

This is a horrible and offensive ad; somewhere in the world, an ad agency should look in the mirror and return the money that they received to create this garbage!

Don’t allow ads to determine your self-worth!

First and foremost, I enjoy writing stories. I recently completed my first novel, and I successfully co-wrote a short film script, which won the grand prize in the words made easy competition.

            1. Janet Gain a lot of weight after MJ’s death. Nutrisystem is good. Losing a lot weight myself. I recommend nutrisystem ( if you can afford it). NS takes the guess work on eating right. Eating right is 75% of my weightless success. Making 8 meals a day, was more challenging then lifting things up, and putting them down. I do agree, size zero is crazy. I think they need to re-do the whole BMI rating.
