I saw a commercial the other day that made me actually stop and rewind. It was for a shoe. For little girls. The Web site markets the shoe with:
"Give her look a lovely lift with the SKECHERS Pretty Talls-High Step shoe. Soft suede or smooth leather and mesh fabric upper in a zigzag strap casual sneaker with a wedge heel."
The commercial ends with a bizarre, jarring circus song. Appropriate considering how the whole idea of selling height (a la stilts) is a strange spectacle.
