Thank God there are still people out there with a sense of humor making idiotic commercials. In the age of Duck Dynasty and Honey Boo Boo, one might have thought that tongue in cheek was all but gone. But Christian Dior does not disappoint.

I thought it was a joke but it’s too early in the morning. And on Face The Nation?

What is THIS….

Jaw Dropping Bad Commercials Still Alive And Well Thanks To Christian Dior

Jaw Dropping Bad Commercials Still Alive And Well Thanks To Christian Dior

…. doing on my TV Screen???

They show a lot of ads for Theatre, maybe this is some kind of spoof? And with Depeche Mode? This was the kind of stuff you’d see on Mad TV or Saturday Night Live (is that still on?).

But sure enough, they’re serious. Anorexic model with thighs not as big in diameter as a 2 liter bottle of coke, the DIOR New York City commercial apparently takes it to the next level in ridiculousness. With David Bowie like dreaminess, the supporting cast gesture and look longingly at eachother while on swings and laying about dress up doing what else.

I thought I was back in the 80’s but not in a good way.

I’m not used to laughing that hard on a Sunday morning especially after a night out at a Georgian Restaurant but the commercial had the last laugh making my hangover return with a vengeance.
