DirecTV's 'Poltergeist' ad is dead wrong

Posted on

Dear DirecTV,

Thanks for destroying my soul a little bit with your recent ad spoofing Poltergeist, which features child star Heather O’Rourke (who passed away in 1988). Just a thought: Next time, perhaps you should avoid using a dead child to hawk your product.

Sincerely,

Kristen Baldwin
