Idiocy Still Front and Center in Most Advertising

This is kind of stupid. Would a grown adult actually dump coffee over the head of someone they just took off their inner circle cell phone calling list? That seems to be the assumption Comparis is making in this new commercial for its circle of friends feature which allows for the inclusion of more than five friends.

Idiocy can be funny, of course. After all, we love to look down our noses at buffoons who would actually do this sort of thing thereby making us feel superior and intelligent in comparison. But why is it that so many brands have to stoop to this level of idiocy just to move product? Are people simply not capable of consuming information delivered in a straight forward fashion? Especially when said information is clearly - and without need for embellishment - compelling enough all by itself such as is the case in this commercial?

You tell us.
