An Open Letter
Shannen's college education explained!

Dear EducationConnection.com,

On March 15 of this year, I wrote you a letter in reference to your commercial featuring Corn Dog Girl, wherein I raised many questions and concerns. Those questions still remain unanswered. But I am still hopeful for your response.

Onto the real reason I’m writing. In paragraph two of my March 15 query, I mentioned, in passing, my thoughts about your commercials featuring Shannen Doherty:

“I kind of got the one with Shannen Doherty. But not really. Is Shannen done being an actress? Or is she going to college to do research for a part? And why does her face look so strange? It doesn’t really look like she’s had work done. But there is something weird going on with her mouth, right?”

The only other commercial that’s ever affected me in this way was the IO Digital Cable campaign. I can still rap the number: 877-353-4448. I think I will go to my grave being able to rap the number. Jingles really stick with me, although they hardly ever encourage me to buy or use, which I believe is their intended purpose. Keep reading »

Shannen Doherty Shills For Education Connection

Education Connection commercials are diabolical. They run during shows like “Degrassi” and “Teen Mom” and generally contain cute young things signing far-too-catchy songs about how they used EducationConnection.com to find an online degree program. Their jingles implant themselves deep in your brain and you find yourself humming them in the shower, even if you graduated from college 10 years ago and tend to not trust websites that advertise on TV as being “free.” Now Education Connection has shifted tactics in controlling my brain. They have hired one of my faves, Shannen Doherty, to shill for them. Very crafty, Education Connection, very crafty.

After the jump, the commercial that is currently running through my head, in case you’ve ever had the pleasure bad luck to run across it. Keep reading »
