Your Generation?

On The Grumbler today: 20-somethings, do the scary ads for My Generation represent you? Or do they piss you off?

I find it amusing that those ads seem to have dredged up the same-old, schlocky, two-dimensional plot points that have been rehashed over the past thirty or so years (speaking as a mid-twentysomething).

I have not had anything to drink this morning. Except for that one beer a minute ago.

i detest their marketing vagueness. Praying on teenage weakness with scam marketing and emotions.

I love these ads; they remind me of how happy I am not to be in my 20s or 30s. These ads nicely channel Generation Doom.

We won't be seeing these ads in the future. This morning's news is My Generation tanked in the ratings and was cancelled after just 2 episodes!

I couldn't help feeling that by couching these exclamations of dishonesty, weakness, compulsion, duplicitousness, avarice, envy etc. under the sweeping umbrella of "My Generation," they were sorta lending them a passive acquiescence. "Hey, it's okay that I cheated on my girlfriend with her roommate and stepped on my colleagues at the office to get ahead,.... that's why we do! That's my generation!!"

It pisses me off. From that ad I gather the show is about some narcissitic cheating scumbag interacting with other obnoxious folk like him. Futhermore I feel insulted that the creators would imply that I could somehow "relate" to this show and the character or maybe that I have freinds like him.
