Happiness at home
3 April, 2018, 12:00 am
A recent visit to a relative’s home found several women watching TV midmorning.
Just as we started to get into conversation with the man of the house, the Sky TV advertisement in which a lass introduces Sky Pacific as “Bringing happiness home” came on screen.
The man of the house instantly pointed towards the TV screen and then to women and said, “This thing only brings laziness home!”
His loud and aggressive tone showing how disturbed he was, was totally ignored. None of the women flinched nor acknowledged his statement as their eyes and ears remained glued to the screen.
One is happy when one does not have a need to toil for their survival so ‘bringing happiness home’ here must mean that Sky provides a means to replace work with entertainment.
And who’s going to feed who?
