The Aspiration of TV Advertising Ruined Your Life.

A friend of mine sent me this link this morning. The video is from what I am assuming is a BBC TV series that is unfortunately not available on BBC America. If it was I’d watch it.  In this episode, host Charlie Brooker shares his insightful thoughts on how TV and specifically TV advertising and Aspirational programming ruined yours and everyone else lives. The show is listed as “Comedy” on YouTube, and I have to admit it is pretty funny at times, it is also a very real reflection on how TV programming and advertising have changed over the last five decades, and how it has impacted society. If you click-through to the YouTube site where these are hosted, you can view even more from the series and see how TV ruined your love life, brought more fear into your life, and shortened your life-cycle.
