I didn’t live anywhere near where MeatLand was located, but I find these local commercials difficult to resist. I just can’t get enough of the subdued, almost unenthusiastic narration, the very basic editing and the lackluster “cinematography”.
I grew up in a town that at one point was famous for its meat-packing industry and we had a lot of factory stores to frequent. Sadly, none of those stores ever advertised on our local TV. If they did, I imagine they would have looked like this one.
