To the OP, I'm not sure if having that commercial aired is what is wrong with America. Perhaps the fact that people actually believe what companies tell them to believe is the most disheartening and concerning. I can't believe the great number of people so pro-business that they would harm the welfare of their children or other peoples children just so long as they agree with the big company.
That is why Wal Mart is still in business and how the financial sector can rob people blind. In this day and age it seems almost obvious that most people under 30 have never boycotted anything in their life. Boycotting takes a bit of effort and self sacrifice and as we've seen on another thread "I want my latte!".
Also, someone mentioned McDonalds. Of course McDonalds uses addictive ingredients like fructose in their bread. Just for S and G's, here is an ingredient list of the McDonald's menu:http://www.dietriot.com/fff/mcd/mcd.html
