Christmas commercials

On the way to Lincoln this morning, I heard 3 radio commercials with Christmas gift ideas:

#1 - Season passes to Knight's Action Park - not so funny if you've never been there, but if you have you'll understand why it is doubtful ANYone would want this.
#2 - Lotto tickets - no joke. The funny thing was that the commercial presented it as the best thing to happen to people who are bad at buying gifts. Or you could throw your money away.
#3 - Mercedes/Benz - who gets a CAR for Christmas?!?

I thought about how this could make for an example of America's consumerization of Christmas...or how people don't give meaningful gifts to the people they love...but I just thought it was funny.
