Just now saw a TV ad from The Twilight Zone, which (among other things) shows how confused America’s notion of individuality has become:
A cute young woman is trying on a dress in a store, checking herself out in the fitting room mirror. She looks good in it.
She looks up, reacts. Across the way a second woman is headed her way, carrying the same dress. They stare at each other.
Suddenly something off to the side catches the first woman’s notice. It’s a third woman, caught in the act of pulling another one of the same dresses off the rack.
The third woman sees the first woman, sees the second woman – sees their dresses. She throws the dress back on the rack as if covering up a crime.
Cut to black. A logo and title appear:
