Battlefield: Earth

Or is it Eyes Wide Shut? It’s definitely Risky Business, in any case:

I was watching tv the other day and saw a “public service announcement” that shocked me. I looked up the website at the end of the commercial at www.thewaytohappiness.org. and found the site was built around the teachings of L. Ron Hubbard in some type of pamphlet entitled, “The Way to Happiness.” The commercial is entitled, “Don’t be Promiscuous” but looks more like an endorsement of extreme domestic violence against men. You would never have a commercial where men were smacking women and breaking things over their head for cheating. Why is this okay? Do Scientologists believe in men being abused?

Take a look at this sick commercial and let me know what you think.

Like I said earlier this week, “the rapidly declining cost and increasing accessibility of self-produced video means that demonizing white males isn’t just for Madison Ave. and the big TV networks anymore!”

In any case, I’d say the makers of the commercial could definitely use hours of psychiatry and a few gallons of antidepressant drugs.
