food lion

on June 6, 2013

So, there are these commercials, and I don’t know if it’s just in my area or not, but some guy takes people into Walmart with their Harris Teeter or Food Lion or whatever receipt and proves that Walmart’s prices are lower. To retaliate, Food Lion started running a commercial in which a woman and her son are in the toy department at Walmart and she asks an employee for maple syrup. He makes a call and the call goes from toys to clothes to electronics and eventually he directs her to the pharmacy for cough syrup and the spot ends with the tag line, “Don’t get the Walmart run around.”

Are you kidding? Okay, for starters, thank you for illustrating that I can get a bike, a shirt, a big screen tv, cough syrup and maple syrup in one place and secondly HOW DUMB IS THIS WOMAN? “Golly, I’m such a buffoon I just can’t figure out which aisle has the syrup…” Go back to Food Lion, you freaking idiot. How are you so far gone that you’re in the toy department anyway?! What the hell is wrong with you?! You and Food Lion deserve each other.

I appreciate that Walmart commercials serve to improve their brand image. (See peopleofwalmart.com)

Thanks Food Lion, but your stores are still ghetto and apparently I’d have to be an idiot to shop there.
