This post about the Kia hamster commercials has been sponsored by Kia and Social Chorus but all opinions expressed here are my own.
Back in the days of my youth we were deprived of a number of the high tech toys that are available today. There were no iPods for music...we listened to stereos that took up the top of an entire bureau. We used telephones that had cords. And there was no such thing as fast forwarding through a commercial. You sat and WATCHED them. And there were some mighty fine commercials back then, too! Remember the jingle for 'two all beef patties, special sauce, lettuce, cheese...." You just sang that in your head, didn't you? Commercials can be FUN if we stop fast forwarding through them and actually watch a few! Most Americans are NOT watching commercials. What are they doing instead? According to a Google search, during commercials:
- Approximately 42% of Americans are channel surfing
- 33% of people are talking on the phone or to others in the room
- 30% of people mentally tune out even if they stay in the same room
Of course, there is also a significant number of people who are using the bathroom or grabbing a snack. But, by running into the kitchen for a plate of nachos or deciding to zone out with Words with Friends you miss some really good commercials. Like the Kia hamsters! The Kia commercials really catch my eye when they come on because the hamsters are just CUTE. My kids have a thing for hamsters and I think this commercial is going to be one they actually remember when they get to be my age. It will be to them what the 'two all beef patties' commercial is for me! A classic to remember fondly! So, you want a sneak peak at it? Take a look and let me know what you think! I love the music selection...one of my favorite songs on the radio right now and it is so catchy! And boy do I wish I was as motivated as they are!
