NBC LMAO Syndrome on Thursday Nights
NBC promoted it’s Thursday Night lineup of comedy shows during the Super Bowl with LMAO, a mockumentary commercial featuring the well known internet acronym for “Laughing My Ass Off”. The ad, while shown on a Sunday night, had the potential to deepen the LMAO effect for Thursday night watchers.
The NBC LMAO spot opens with a male doctor examining a male patient’s rear, with the question, “What happened to your butt?” A male medical officer explains the LMAO epidemic to the camera. However it seems the The LMAO Syndrome affects women the most, with shows like Earl, Kath & Kim, The Office and 30 Rock being the prime causes.
