I watched the commercial, and yes, it's bad. It's terrible. It's hilarious.
Then I went on the site. Really, they need better marketing, because I was totally won over.
I think online dating is a great idea. I know tons of married couples that met online. This is just even MORE specific!
I'm friends with some very eligible bachelors ... most of them farmers or in farm-related industries. (Hi, guys!)
When I try to think of girls they can date, you always have to take the lifestyle into consideration. Would the girl want to live on a farm? Would she like to live in the country?
These girls do!
Yesterday a neighbor and I were talking and she said it was hard for her son to find girls to date, now that he was back on the farm. (That's the same concept the commercial is trying to get at. You know, through the talking animals. Also, why do they have clown voices?)
Another one of my farmer friends commented that he loves going to sporting events, because he is surrounded by girls his age - which just doesn't happen on his farm. And a different farmer friend said that when you date a girl with marriage in mind, she has to know - and accept - the lifestyle she's going to marry into.
So the site is obviously meeting a demand. It's not meeting good commercial standards ... but then again, I'm talking about it, aren't I? But I'm using a normal voice, not like those creepy farm animals.
