So the other day I’m watching Star Trek: Voyager on Spike late at night and on comes an ad for Girls Gone Wild. Now, Spike is a television network which typically caters to men in their teens, twenties, and thirties. Their shows are typically sports-related and sort of “manly man”-type, and I can see how the people who make Girls Gone Wild would want to advertise there. It’s a bit confusing as to how Star Trek episodes also wind up on Spike, but it’s good to have a source of them if I feel like watching an episode. Besides, the people who tend to watch Star Trek episodes probably don’t have all the best luck with women, so might be inclined to buy Girls Gone Wild as well.
So a few days later, I’m watching Torchwood on BBC America late at night, and on comes an ad for Boys Gone Wild. Seriously. I mean, are homo- and bisexual men (or the few women who do like watching that sort of thing) a large portion of Torchwood’s demographic? The show itself it a different story. Watching that is practically like watching Boys Gone Wild anyway, but I really found it funny.
Maybe if I watch Animal Planet I’ll see an ad for Birds Gone Wild. Though, they’re already in the wild, so how can they go wild unless you take them out of the wild them them let them go back to the wild? Sort of thing.
