Have You Ever Wondered About This?

TV Commercials I am so frustrated with TV commercials. I usually try to DVR programs and watch them the next day when I can fast forward through the commercials. First of all, I don’t really understand how companies spend MILLIONS of dollars on TV commercials that play over and over all day long, can still keep the price of their product affordable. I have always said that if a company would STOP spending all that money on their commercials, they wouldn’t have to charge so much for whatever they are selling. Right now there is a CAR DEALERSHIP in this area that has to be spending thousands, if not millions, of dollars on TV commercials and yet the salesman in the commercial claims that their dealership has the lowest prices on new cars, in the state of Virginia. I see the commercial all the time and I don’t watch that much TV. I wonder how many times a day, that commercial is shown every day, when I’m NOT watching TV? Just out of curiosity, I would really like to call that TV station and see how much it would cost for ME to run a commercial like theirs on TV? I could pretend to be in the market for advertising my product and just say, that I want a commercial similar to that car dealership and see what price they would give me. I won’t be doing that, of course, but I am curious. What do you think?
