Isn't Ironic Don't You Think?

Irony is taking a photo of the Virgin Media advert campaign and criticising it for its blatant materialistic referral to their services as the means of happiness. A sure sign of how consumerism has become the religion of today. Only for the wife to come to the conclusion recently that it would be more financially prudent for us to invest in a total Virgin Media package than the current phone, broadband and television deals we are on.

Am I a hypocrite? Does a stand for my convictions require me to boycott the usage of the product? Whether it does or it doesn’t is tough – the crib has it and I am not going to invoke an executive veto to return to our previous deals. Likewise I still feel the advert campaign is symptomatic of the consumerist society we live in which is a travesty. Make of that what you will and by all means let me know what you make of it.

I'd take this advert to be ironic.
