radio commercial annoyance

'Rexall Relief' - begins by talking about the economy and how people need to tighten their budgets. Then their tag line is 'for the items you and your family want the most'.

If the economy is hard on your family and you have to tighten your family's budget, shouldn't you be worrying about the things your family NEEDS, not wants? I understand that even if you're short on money people still want to treat themselves to things and sure it's nice that a company wants to make those things cheaper. I guess I just look around and see a society full of overspenders (myself included), indulging in things that aren't necessary to a happy life and yet people in underdeveloped countries are so much happier than us, with so MUCH LESS.
