This Commercial Sucks: Trelegy And “ABC”

Well, this Trelegy ad did succeed in one aspect: it made me look up and pay attention to a boring pharma ad. But to take the classic Jackson 5 tune “ABC”, remake it in a Kids Bop-esque manner, and use it in a commercial for COPD medication? Ugh, ugh, ugh.

    the song is a childhood memory and this commercial destroys that.
    it’s not fair to “bait” my age group demographic with a COPD pharmaceutical
    this is psychologically an assault on the minds of the elderly population in general

    A jollly jingle for a drug to treat a serious illness? beyond absurd!!

    they want to saddle you with an earworm to remember their despicable commercial. there should be laws against it punishable by death by torture!!!
