eHarmony commercials get on my nerves. Don’t get me wrong, I’m not down on love. I think that’s a great thing. Maybe it’s because the site refuses to match gay people, maybe it’s because Neil Clark Warren kind of creeps me out. Whatever it is, the ads annoy me. The earlier spots heavily featured NCW and some less-than-photogenic couples matched by the site. Sure, these people weren’t cover models, but they were realistic. I had no doubt they’d met on the site. But the new breed of eHarmony couples are so pretty, and I’m sorry, but I’m just a little skeptical. It’s not that I don’t believe attractive people find love on the internet, because they certainly do. But these people just seem a little too perfect. My suspicions were piqued even further when I saw this Nyquil commercial: See this guy? The one who gives his buddy some Nyquil in the commercial? Doesn’t he look eerily similar to this guy:
Maybe they’re two completely different fellas. But watch both commercials and tell me you didn’t have to think twice about it. Neil Clark Warren, I’m onto you!
