Seen the Airwick commercials with those animated animals? That's just wrong! There is an elephant, chameleon, octopus and giraffe. I went to Airwicks page and its disturbing they have bios that read like a real person. Things like "with my two teenage boys" etc..

They aren't cute and cuddly types, they are just...I don't know...wrong! Maybe they use animation so they don't have to pay and put up with real actors? And the animation looks very outdated like an old 80s saturday morning cartoon.

Should it bug me that the family members are rarely made up of the same species or should I just throw all logic and plausibility out the window whenever these ads come on.

I'm too lazy to find them all in English but this is more entertaining anyhow. Click on the black screen that says "Embedding disabled by request" to watch it on YouTube as I am also too lazy to rewrite these as labeled URLs.

Can you imagine the smell of all those animals together in one room? They're going to need more that one Airwick Freshmatic to get that smell out.

Plus, how do they figure an elephant marrying a centipede and having rabbit children?

I just saw the one with the Ant lady and I almost screamed in terror. Soemthing about that ant "butt" scares the hell out of me.

I don't know why they think those weird, stylized animals are cute. Those things really creep me out!

Also, and I really don't know why, it really bothers me that some of them are nudists and others wear clothes and it especially bothers me that the frog is apparently only a nudist when she is "back home in the rain forest".  Why does this bug me so much?  I don't know, I just know that it does. 
 
Okay, sorry to harp on this, but I just had to edit my post to include a complaint about the latest ad with the ants.  First, the ants are creepy and scary and second, since all the ants are naked, why does the mom carry around three huge laundry baskets full of clothes????  I hate inconsistencies like that, it just makes this commercial irritate me even more. 
 
Okay, I'm done with this one I think....

I know this is an older topic, but I couldn't agree with what has already been said more.  Very spot on!

I think what disgusts me most of all are the "hints of boobs" on the female animal species.  I find it extremely disturbing to be watching a commercial with talking CGI animals with inter-specie-breeding families in which the "Mom" Animal is wear a suggestive sweater or has human breast lumps on "her" torso. 

I swear this is illegal to show in at least 43 of the 50 states.
