What's wrong with this advertisement?

Smiling mother: "This Friday morning I'll be going to Wal-Mart. Because I'm known as the coolest mom on the block. And I want to keep it that way".

The fact that they call it Black Friday says it all, in my book. Only in Amurka.

Cool moms don't go to Wal-Mart. Cool moms send their undocumented workers to Wal-Mart so they can stay home and get drunk and boff the hot neighborhood boys.

The term "Cool Mom" must have multiple meanings in the American lexicon.

I actually don't get my undies in a bundle about "Buy Nothing Day" because, in my life, nearly EVERY day is "buy nothing day." Kind of like "TV Turn-off Week." You have to turn it on before you can turn it off.

I had to go the Maul the other day to return something, and the woman at the check-out was advising customers that some item was on sale and great for "everyone on your list." And I thought, we are such sheep! Buy, buy, buy and we say "Baaaaa" and do it. It's not that I'm a Scrooge, but the amount of mindless buying just 'cause, is just gross.
