As I sat on my couch shortly after returning from work today, Rowan, my girlfriend's 3-year-old son was watching some kid's show, when it hit my TV. I'll never be the same again.
A commercial for Mini-Pop Kids came on. It featured a series of pre-pubescent no-talent children singing a series of crappy, no-talent songs.
You could even see it, too. The white kid who needed a haircut, had his pants down around his knees, and his hat on wrong, "rapping" very very badly. You can see his future in that commercial: on welfare, working at the local steel mill, talking about how he's gonna "make it big one day."
Do people actually buy this shit? And if so, what the HELL are they thinking? It's bad enough when people buy the originals of these songs, performed by cookie-cutter morons; it's a disgraceful day in human existence when people are buying a CD containing those songs performed by children who weren't alive when they were released.
So many companies out there with millions of dollars. So many puppets running them. When did capitalism start meaning, "he with the stupidest idea wins?"
