This Commercial Sucks: Flipp Gets Depressingly Millennial

YouTube comment: “Something about this commercial is off”

And I’ve gotta agree with that. We meet a woman (who appears to be a giant) who sits down in a chair and talks about how at her age, her parents owned a house. But times have changed. After making dinner for the kids, she kisses them goodnight and leaves for her night shift. She checks the weekly ads on Flipp during her lunch break. She never shops without it. While she doesn’t own a house like her parents did, she can save money on her pajamas. And…that’s it. The commercial ends. I don’t know if they were trying to be witty or just very real, but it comes off as depressing. So, so depressing.

    Hello Joshw24,

    Thank you for sharing this commercial, this was my first time seeing it, I agree that it was kind of sad; it was sad but true, and I kind of like that honesty.

    I was watching the commercial thinking that she was going to say that from her saving using the flipp app, she was able to afford a down payment on a house or something…and then the commercial just ended…wtf.

    What in the entire f**k? I blame Flipp for signing off on this depressing nonsense.
