You thought about jumping on a rubber boat and thwarting harpoons to save the whales. But then you would miss Desperate Housewives.

The man who stops advertising to save money is like the man who stops the clock to save time

agree totally... that was my feeling when I read it... it's kind of "you're really nice but you're also a coward, a chicken, a potato couch, a stupid who prefers to watch desperate housewifes instead of saving the whales. Give us your money, shut up and let us do the work of a hero for you". Insulting. Offensive.
The idea itself (don't have to join us to join us) is not bad at all, but the line sucks.

Maybe if they were talking about saving babies from starvation I would move, but instead of saving WHALES oh yeah, i prefer the housewifes. 100%.
