OriginalRanch.jpgAnother in the list of stupid commercials… Hidden Valley Ranch. Picture this: a woman sits alone in a dark room and starts to put ranch dressing on her salad. She is morose, the scene is dismal, it looks like an unhappy scene.

As she pours the salad dressing, her background changes, a boy runs by with a dog, her cold desk changes to a picnic table on a bright sunny day, an older couple brings a plate of burgers, and they all sit happily at the table. Oh… I get it – if you use Hidden Valley Ranch dressing, it will make your miserable life turn into a picnic.

Wow! What happened to truth in advertising? Can they honestly say that salad dressing will improve anything about your life? Oh wait.. they just say it “seems” better. Nice.
