Irony in broadband Internet commercial

June 3rd, 2005 Comments Off on Irony in broadband Internet commercial

Just the other I was listening to a favorite radio station when I heard a commercial for a broadband Internet provider. In the commercial, one of the characters asked another if he could download music using the advertised service.

Considering that I never heard someone talking about actually buying music through such services in Brazil — many of those services are not even supported here — the commercial is very ironic.

Internet providers here certainly don’t care about the legality of people downloading music through their servers. Without going into the merits of the issue, I’d love to see what would happen if a commercial like that were aired in the US. 😛
