Before I share my words of daily wisdom with you, allow me to point out the following: this post is filed under ‘News You Can Use’ but unfortunately there’s nothing useful about this piece of content. Instead, I’m going off on a well needed rant.

The ACCU-CHEK Nano commercial I came across last night. In a nutshell, it’s horrid. Really, have a look for yourself in the video below. You’d think you were viewing an ad for a kid’s cereal, a pair of sneakers, or the latest toy based on the tone and catchy music.

It’s a device used to monitor a horrible disease – one that can lead to heart attacks, strokes, kidney failure, blindness, gangrene of the extremities, and anything else you can think of.

I have one thing to say to everyone who took part in the making of this commercial: idiots. That’s it, I’m done…
