Fans who had tuned in to watch their weekly three-hour barrage of commercials were disappointed Monday when the advertisements were frequently interrupted by professional wrestling matches.
A particularly exciting commercial for a new fluorescent-mauve variety of Mountain Dew, for example, was followed by two dull minutes of The New Day facing the Usos for the 1,693rd time.
“This is getting out of hand,” said advertising journalist Dave Muntzler. “Sometimes a single commercial break is interrupted two or three times by some silly wrestling match or longwinded interview.”
Fans were especially excited this week to see new advertisements for Sonic fast food restaurants, Mattel action figures, Snickers candy bars, and other favorite subjects of the overgrown manchildren who spend three hours watching nonsense every Monday night.
