Here in the Villages we are the target market for things like hearing aids, walk in showers, ED treatment, cosmetic surgery, joint replacement, golf carts, etc.... We are still a target, just not for the products and services typically advertised on National Television. And we are all a target market for our ability to vote, because a very high percentage of seniors exercise their right to vote, and because we live in the largest swing state in the country.

The ONLY time I actually watch a commercial on TV is during the Super Bowl. period. If watching LIVE TV, example golf, I tend to switch to another channel or such. But most times I DVR and watch a show later - FForwarding (4X) thru the commercials. I think the ONLY things I'd watch LIVE is another moon landing or the last hour of the World Series, Golf Final, Stanley Cup 7th game 3rd Period - as last night.

We have DirecTV and Netflix - watch TV almost always after 5PM only.

Political ads... OMG! THE WORST!!! Will Never spend 1 second of my attention on them - HATE!

Mass advertising never really works on intelligent people.

Anyone looking to buy:
An Alien wedge
"AJ Reveals the Truth About Golf."
Kallassy's Swing Magic trainer.
A Medicus Dual-Hinge Driver.
A Tight Lies fairway wood.
A Bender Stick
A Stand up Putter
A HammerX driver
Plus hundreds of 'Greater Distance,' 'Unsliceable' 'Straight as an Arrow' golf balls.

I like the golf ball commercial that says it is "the ball that changed the ball". Really?

I respectfully...disagree.

Hang on a minute, while I prove it by digging around to find my...Ron Popeil's Pocket Fisherman.

Get onto Google and find the generic name for drug and buy that. In my case I could buy 365 tabs for $14.00 from Amazon.

To add insult to injury Zyrtec proved to be too powerful for me so I now have about 27 tabs of Zyrtec sitting in the closet!
1. Zyrtec has been available in generic and "drug store brand" for a couple of years now, and with B1G1 and "Extra Bucks" promotions from CVS and Walgreens, is actually very affordable. EDITED TO ADD: I just did a google search on the generic ceterazine hcl, 10mg, 30 tablets. You can get a bottle at Target for $7.19. Not as good at 365 for $14 but if you only want 30 at a time, you pay more per tablet. That's just the nature of retail.

2. You can take half a Zyrtec if a full one is too strong. That'd double your value and give you what you need. Half a zyrtec is actually the prescribed dose for cats with airborne allergies.

It's not like once I passed 65 I stopped buying home goods, groceries, personal care products, clothes, tires, insurance, electronics, etc. And I have more discretionary income now to boot.

If any overall group is more likely to watch TV show live, including commercials, it's seniors. You'd think advertisers would be dying to reach us instead of ignoring and ghettoizing us!

That's an interesting point. In fact, I read an article today that advertisers are considering changing a long standing practice of targeting the age group that is currently known as Millennials, because most of them don't have any money and are living pay check to pay check. Also, retailers that sell "do it yourself" products such as the Home Depot ignore that age group all together because very few of them would ever attempt to fix something.
