Rethink Excess

I love the new Saturn Vue commercial with all the gold and sparkles. Then the Vue stops fast so it doesn’t hit the Paris Hilton look alike. “Spending money like it’s going out of style is going out of style.”

I was surfing trying to find the exact words to the commercial, when I ran across another blog saying that we don’t like to be told that we live excessively and how the commercial shouldn’t tell us to spend less extravegently.

What about you, do you think we live in a culture that promotes excessiveness? Do you see the trend moving towards less excess? Or is it all talk and the wallet is still opening?
