If you’ve never observed a kid discover the concept of a commercial, you are really missing out. It’s hilarious.
“Mommy, that thing you said people make you watch to sell products… the mercial?… I think it got stuck. Can you come and unstick it for me because it’s showing the same thing for the third time.”
Then, in a loud whisper, “Mommy, I don’t want to buy this toothbrush they keep showing but I don’t want to hurt its feelings. What should I do?”
And finally in a loud, triumphant yell, “Mommy, that song my teacher Mr Gabe keeps singing, ‘Red Robin, yummmm!’ It’s from a TV show!”
