PBS mercilessly mocks America in British ads.


(click ads, via)
"USA with a higher IQ?" Fuck Q, PBS! And if you're so fucking smart, why does your American flag only have 28 states? Huh? Besides, all you show here is hoity-toity British shows anyway.
Defund the Commie PBS!
Defeat the Commie Nobama!

This puts me in mind of a CNN International TV ad that ran (briefly) in Europe in 2001. It shows a scene of a bank robbery that ends with every person in the bank--tellers, customers, and the robber--turning out to have a gun in his or her possession. The tagline: "CNN International. Because things are different in America."

Before you go off on a rant about the lamestream media you should understand these ads are for a UK audience.

They are selling their channel on the idea that it is amercian content but with a focus on quality content insead of wall to wall Kim Kardashian and Snooki.

The flag has light bulbs not stars because its about american ideas.

Does America need mercy. I do believe you may have missed the point. so many things you take with a pinch of salt, yet this irks you. did you get out of the wrong side of the bed? as a hardened copywriter I believe you hardly noticed this waft under your nose, but as you did, you have prooved a point, it got noticed and quoted... so are you just pandering to your audience...

Thanks, my opinion of you restored. broad shoulders, thick skin and a britishesque stiff upper lip and an intelect big enough to work about IQ benchmarking to your credit. admirable sociopsychophysical attribites
