Strange Juxtaposition

Sometimes advertising decisions fail to make any sense at all.


Flipping through channels this evening I saw that Fuse TV was playing the movie Pink Floyd, The Wall.

The Wall was one of the all time favorite albums form my misspent youth. It was the first album I bought with my own money.

The movie came out when I was in college and I loved it. Of course my perception was slightly distorted when I saw it in the theater.

I was happy to see it on TV even though iFuse felt compelled to censor some of the lyrics. It brought back some fun and foggy memories of my younger years

Watching the movie with commercials was a little jarring as they didn't handle the breaks very well. But in there defense it's not an easy movie to cut into for commercials.

The really really really strange thing is that main sponsor, featured at least once and sometimes twice in every commercial break was Candie's Limited Edition Collection – Designed by Britney Spears.

There is just too much cognitive dissonance for me to even try to understand. 

Talk about harshing my mellow.

1 Dark Side of the Moon was my favorite from them.
