The Cinemafia Has Infected Television
The Cinemafia had kept its damage to the movie industry until recently. Any damage it had done to the music and television industries had been subtle and I apologize for not addressing those issues sooner.
Last week MTV premiered a show called “Skins.” This show has all of the makings of a Cinemafia production. Underage children drinking, doing drugs, and frolicking naked has no business in the entertainment industry. None.
To the credit of most major advertisers, they have been pulling their ads from “Skins”. People do not want to see naked children doing drugs and having sex. If we see a pup-tent shaking in a teenager’s bedroom, we want it to be because there is an earthquake, not because there two underage children are re-enacting “Afternoon Delight.”
Kudos to Wrigley Gum, H&R Block, and Subway for pulling their ads from the show. They are all fine organizations and their spokespeople have apologized for sponsoring the first show. I can understand this. As somebody who works in marketing and advertising, I know there is a certain assumption that my clients have in where their products are advertised. They expect that television shows will not be viewing shows containing child pornography.
I do not know which companies are planning to advertise on “Skins”. I won’t know first hand as I have no intention of watching doped up naked children just to find out who to boycott. If you know who is still running ads on “Skins”, please leave a comment below. I’d boycott MTV altogether, but J-Woww is a hottie. She’s also over the age of 18.
Sorry, the comment form is closed at this time.
