If your child wants to buy some toys he saw on TV, find out who is to blame on this episode. Slow dialog: 1:16 Explanations: 2:40 Fast dialog: 14:53 James: Look at that! It’s commercial after commercial. It’s terrible how advertisers are going after kids. Vicky: They’re just doing their job, marketing to a lucrative demographic. James: But just look at what our kids are bombarded with: toy commercials and junk food ads! Vicky: Children’s television is no different from any other type of programming. Commercials are a fact of life. James: But don’t you think it’s wrong to manipulate young viewers with these commercials? Aren’t they more susceptible to false advertising? Vicky: Shh! That’s our company’s product commercial. It really gets your attention, doesn’t it? James: Yeah, it’s grand, just grand. Script by Dr. Lucy Tse
