Is it just me, or are all of the dog/cat food/other pet product commercials almost always, like, *one* person, and their animal companion? As if the commercials were saying "okay, you lonely people that can't manage to find an actual human companion... here's something for you to use to spoil the animal companion you're using to attempt to fill the gap in your cold shriveled heart"?
Granted, I may be using a biiiit of poetic license there on the translation. A tad.
But think about it! How many commercials can you think of where it's a family and their trusted family dog, or house cat? It seems like it's just naturally one person (usually a woman), and their animal, or animals.
