The end of civilization as we know it?

Is anyone else totally creeped out by the ads for this refrigerator?

A TV? In the fridge? For the love of puppies and kittens, WHY??? What sick, twisted design team was trying to come up with a new gimmick to make people pay $$$ on kitchen appliances and came up with the idea to just put a TV in the door? More to the point, who's buying these things?

Maybe I've just been watching too much TV in the last couple of months, but every time I see this ad I get irritated. Whatever happened to family time at dinner? Whatever happened to having actual conversations with your spouse and kids? Conversations that don't include a running commentary on the latest episode of your favorite TV show?

There's just something very, very wrong here.
