Poll: Does WFAA Promo About ‘Birds and the Bees’ Go Too Far?

Dallas ABC affiliate WFAA recently began airing a promo spot titled “The Talk” starring morning anchor Ron Corning as part of a campaign that may test the boundaries of taste.

The spot shows Corning sitting on the edge of a bed in a child’s room talking to two elementary school age kids.  He holds a male and a female doll while saying, “Um. Yeah.  That is where babies come from. Any questions?” While the kids stare open mouthed at Corning, the dad pokes his head in the door and asks, “Is it over?”

According to the station, there are five spots under the theme of “Count on Ron” taking “a farcical look at what you can count on your local anchor for.” Click here to view the campaign.

So we want to know what you think. Is this promo effective marketing or is it just plain creepy? Cast your vote below.
