Get Your _____ On
Advertisers: Stop it.
"Get Your Smile On" and "Get Your Snack On?" No, seriously, stop.
In my film class, we learned this term called "The Parody." You see, once something has been parodied, that means that it shouldn't actually be used in a serious fashion. The genre is "dead," and either needs to be left alone or re-invented.
I submit to you The Delta Ad. Advertising Executives, this came out on this thing called the internets about six freakin' years ago. The phrase has been mocked and in the grave that long, and you're just now catching on? Please, the only things we "get on" are our shirts in the morning.
