Subject: tv ads

I find your television ad, which closes with the paraphrased lines, "If you don't're not a bad're just not a whole person," seriously offensive.

The suggestion that I am incomplete because I don't share your interests (buy your products) is the same as racism or religious oppression. Why do you run ads that promote ideas that denegrate portions of the population who don't think the way you do? Why do you have to attack people who aren't interested to attract the ones who might be?

Our intention was not to offend with this commercial, and we apologize that it brought about such a feeling. Due to concerns over this particular ad we have asked the networks to pull it off the rotation.
