While I was up in Indiana, I had like 1 minutes to kill at one point, so I flipped on Mtv and sat there watching it for a second. I don’t really know why I decided to stop there, perhaps it was the video at the time, though I don’t remember what it was.
What I do remember was that when the next set of commercials came on I was amazed at what I saw. The first was a commercial for huggies and the second was for one of those “once a day genital herpes” drugs. Wow.
Now if you look at these two commercials and guess Mtv’s target market, you get 15-25 year olds with kids and genital herpes. What a proud group that is. I can honestly say, that I don’t think Mtv was showing these kind of commercials when I was a kid, so the question is are they changing their commercials to keep up with the people that are my age now who still watch Mtv, or are they tailoring their commercials to the slutty 15-17 year old?
