A “delightful” advert from Toys’R’us

A genuinely shocking, to me at least, advert from toys R us. Basically it suggest that if you love your kids you should buy them stuff rather not force them to endure the hell of “outdoors” (Nature bad, science bad, outdoors bad, crappy plastic toys good, consumerism good). To add to the mix the kids in the advert are from a deprived neighbourhood, so it adds a nice dollop of exploitation to the disparagement of science and nature in the name of crass consumerism.
