I speak, of course, of the MetLife ad which featured a shit-ton of cartoon characters including He-Man, Voltron, Peanuts and more, getting together to... talk about how much they love life insurance, I guess? I don't know. I didn't care for it. I find life insurance kind of a grim enterprise anyways, and I've never liked the Peanuts shilling for MetLife, so including more cartoons makes me feel like they're trying to sell life insurance to children, which just seems wrong. I mean, they don't let cartoon characters advertise beer and cigarettes anymore, so I don't know why it's okay here. At least beer and cigarettes make people feel good.
