Sadly, a Texas man wants to sell his family to an advertiser on ebay. The idea is to contract his family out to a brand for a year where they promote the product/brand in everything they do (wearing T-shirts, putting ads on their cars etc) in return for at least $50,000. With others selling their virginity and exclusive rights to their wedding and death, the trend towards commercialism in every part of our lives seems irreversible. I can understand people's need to make money, but where do we draw the line when it comes to dignity? Apparently, the line is further away than ever.
