The Aerie Girls may be saying, â€œI can really identify with Rory Gilmore because I have gone through heartbreak before,â€ but all Iâ€™m hearing is, â€œI am being paid by American Eagle to act like I am having a casual conversation with my friends.â€
The Aerie Girls are a made up group of girls, like O-Town (snap?), created by American Eagle to pretend to be your friends. As thrilling as that may be for the 13 year old boys out there, it makes me very angry.
American Eagle has teamed up with The CW on Tuesdays to bring you the Aerie Girls during commercial segments of the Gilmore Girls and Veronica Mars. During these commercials, the Aerie Girls will relate to each other about what has happened during the TV shows you have been watching. By â€œrelateâ€ I mean â€œread words from a script.â€
If you are a commercial for American Eagle, come out and say you are a commercial for American Eagle. Donâ€™t put on this horribly fake persona and pretend Iâ€™m an idiot.
And another thing. Radio, Iâ€™m talking to you here. I know you are not in a bar talking to real people about what shows are coming up this week. Cut the act. If I was deaf and blind and had no nerve endings and was dead, I could see right through your horrible advertising techniques.
I want everyone to get mad about this Aerie Girls thing. Get angry. Let American Eagle know that you arenâ€™t a stupid cow in a field chewing your cud and waiting to be slaughtered. No, thatâ€™s too clichÃ©.
Let American Eagle know you had a casual conversation about the Aerie Girls with your friends, and have decided to shop at the GAP instead.
Wait, the GAP has those creepy Audrey Hepburn commercials. I think weâ€™re in a lose-lose situation here, American consumers.
Just shop at Target. Yeah, thatâ€™ll work.
