  •  I don't blame the actors, so much ... (14+ / 0-)

    It's an honest living.

    I blame the Companies behind the Ads,

    obscuring and blurring the Facts, with vague half-truths,

    to the detriment of us all.  Literally.

    thanks LeftHandedMan, for the anecdotal stories,

    it's good to hear the "rest of the story".

    What is necessary to change a person is to change his awareness of himself.

      I don't know anybody who is famous, but boy do I know a lot of people with some awesome stories who wanted/want to be.

      If you ever meet an actor who has gone on a single audition, you have met an actor with 11 stories.

      The most successful of them I've known have their own personal tapes of themselves in "ComTexTech Moldable Plastics Corporation presents: Don't be like Mr. Grabby Hands."

    •  i would like to be a fly on the wall, (4+ / 0-)

      listening in and watching the process unfold from the time companies decide they need a propaganda piece, to the meeting with the ad people, to the discussions the ad people have on how to present these "problematic" issues in a more acceptable fashion.

      think about all the energy, man hours and money spent on deception. i know everyone needs to make a living but this seems like a particularly contemptous way to make a buck.

    •  I don't know how honest it is to recite lines (0+ / 0-)

      you vehemently disagree with. It's a living, and it may have felt necessary at the time, but it sure as hell ain't honest. All of us make big mistakes throughout life, myself included- I'm not interested in judging anyone here. But I'm also not interested in willfully enabling toxic actions. Fine, the actors fucked up and hopefully will grow past that, but, no, it's not "honest" to be the friendly face of horrific stuff. Let's call a spade a spade.
