    Posted: 06 Dec 2012 at 3:13am


There's a local chain of stores in the NW USA called "Fred Meyer" owned by Kroger. They have a new bunch of commercials on TV, animated commercials featuring a snowwoman named Snowmom, an Everywoman who is lightheartedly concerned about the best way to be a frugal consumer this year during the holidays.

Snowmom is voiced by Debra Jo Rupp, best known for her role as Kitty Forman on That '70s Show. As you probably know, she's a one-trick pony, a "comedic" actress who derives all of her "comedy" from her shrill, high-pitched, nasally voice, as opposed to timing and delivery.

So this commercial is all over TV, and has now spread all over the radio, too. There's no escape. There are dozens of variations of the same formula, featuring her annoying voice. The formula is: Kill my eardrums while trying to relate to the average wife/mother, then list all the wonderful products at thrifty prices. It usually ends with some sort of hilarious joke, such as her husband getting mummified with Christmas tree lights because he's a typical Dumb Daddy.

I hate it, but I give proper respect to whoever remembered to give me a reason WHY I should shop at Fred Meyer, unlike some recent commercials, like the Brad Pitt commercial. So yeah. But by the time Snowmom gets around to telling me why I should buy great products at low, low prices, I've turned the channel.

I had to get this off my chest. Thank you for bearing with me as I rant.

This commercial rates somewhat moderately high on my, "Bloody Q-Tips Floating in the Toilet" scale -- that is, if you came to my house some evening and saw bloody Q-Tips bobbing around merrily in the water closet, there's a pretty fair shot that the 'Snowdouche' commercial probably played recently. Confused

Doesn't seem like a good idea to flush Q-tips, bloody or not, down the toilet.

I guess bumbling snow-dad wrapped in Christmas lights was supposed to bring a chuckle.
