Is this one little phrase the dumbing down of America?  No way.

 

Instead, it is an inventive and clever use of language to catch the attention of viewers and make them look twice.

 

There are so many words and ideas that spring up in advertising and sales that later become mainstay phrases in the (American) English language.

 

Who cares if you like it or not--it gave QVC at least five minutes of your time, and during that five minutes maybe you will shop and buy something.

Another lame marketing campaign by the Q......I guess they think it will make QVC appear "with it" and to use an old phrase "hip" ------to draw in that younger demographic....But all it does it make them appear silly....

Re: Find your “happy”

Just not a big deal.  Maybe they just want to put a smile on people especially at this time.  Expecting perfection in this world is unrealistic.

That phrase has been around a long time.  I have a tee from the 80's with it on.

Who comes up with these sayings at QVC?  Happy is an adjective.  Wouldn't it be better to say Find Your Happiness?  No, instead, it's repeated a thousand times a day so some people will start to think that's actually a correct way to speak.  Kind of like "you got this" which obviously did not originate from QVC.  Dumbing down of America.
 


You might be more impactful if you accessed a Q mod and gave them the ask. They could do a deep dive into the Q's spiel policy  and unpack it for you. Or not. There aren't as many boots on the ground these days, so good luck with reaching out. Smiley Wink

Another reason I stopped watching years ago. Got tired of being taken on a “ tour” of handbags, shoes, etc.
