OK, so if you’re not a medical person or someone who took a CPR class, you may not realize how TECHNICALLY BAD this LECOM television commercial actually is. So I have labored over the Jagoff-istrator to show you.
Now bad CPR is one thing.. but then they go to show ya the old “Gotta Jump Start Da Brutha” paddles and THEY are in the wrong place too. See the pic below for your quick “I wanna be a nurse or paramedic” quick-tip learning tool.
This commercial is running so I am re-running this blog post!
Now, if you’re not a medical person you may not care about the bad LECOM television commercials. That is, until one of their students or graduates comes to give you CPR or use the paddles on you when you pass out!
You may also say, “Who cares? They get their point across!” To that I respond with, would Pitt put out a TV commercial with one of their football players coloring outside the lines of their weekly coloring book? Nope.. they’d make that player hold a 400-level physics text book and be damned sure that he didn’t hold it upside down!!!!!
I say…….Hey Lake Erie College of Osteopathic Medicine, you paid a ton of money to shoot a commercial about your educational programs and you paid a SECOND ton of money to air those commercials down here in Pittsburgh, which, in case you’ve been under a rock for the past 10 years, is one of the Meccas for healthcare and LOADED with healthcare providers that watch TV, so ya might want to call your local American Heart Association for a refresher before you tell us how SMART ya are, Ya Jagoffs!!
