They ARE People

Today’s daily prompt word gives me the perfect opportunity to say something I’ve been wanting to say for some time now.

I am annoyed by commercials with the words “Real people. Not actors.” It’s just as vivid to say, “The people shown here are not actors,” and/or “The reactions shown are spontaneous, not scripted.”

Actors are people. They are people whose career is acting; they are people we are used to seeing, most often, in costume.

I’m just saying.
