Terminix TV Commercial Angers Some Consumers
The latest TV advertisement campaign from pest control company Terminix has some consumers riled up, claiming that the ads are more like a graphic scary movie and not appropriate for young children.
One of the commercials features a large slimy slug-like creature that slithers its way across a kitchen counter, then morphs into cockroaches pouring out of a cookie jar. Another ad spot features a similar creature emerging from a sink.
Some consumers are claiming that the commercials are scaring their kids to the point of having nightmares, and even giving the parents themselves the willies. One consumer called the commercials a 'middle of the day horror show.'
Concerned consumers are asking for the ads to be taken off the air immediately, or at least shown in a more appropriate time and place. Terminix has yet to comment on the issue.
