Here’s another noise that should never be in a commercial – the tone for the Emergency Broadcast system, especially when it isn’t followed by “This is only a test.” There’s some trailer for a Sci-fi movie that has that noise. It seems so blasphemous.
Sirens on commercials evoke the Pavlovian response of looking around. Those with acute ears can distinguish between what’s on the radio versus what’s around the car, so I end up swiveling around in an approximation of Linda Blair while my wife rolls her eyes.
Well, the problem is that you Americans have cottage cheese that doesn’t have any flavour whatsoever. So, yeah, of course it’s hideous. It’s like eating lumpy chalk. Over here (Israel) we make it right, and it’s actually very tasty.
