Irresponsible advertising!

Posted by Dr. Susan on March 25, 2010

I saw a new Panasonic Lumix camera commercial last night that I found really disturbing. It showed three teen girls taking video of themselves on the beach when a fat guy dancing¬†strayed into their picture. The girl taking the picture began shooting him instead,¬†commenting “This is definitely going on the web!”

Why would Panasonic be so irresponsible as to directly encourage kids and teens to post pictures of strangers to the internet, not to mention mean, nasty, defaming pictures? This ad is so dangerous and¬†irresponsible that it truly shocked me! Shouldn’t big companies have more sense of responsibility to the public than that?
