Advertising By-Product


The more that avertising fails to sell products and services, the more creative the agencies become in trying to get the attention of the prospective buyer. Now, particularly with TV, this produces an interesting by-product...some very good entertainment. Until recently, I focused on the negative aspects of all the mind numbing ads. Now, I take what it gives...and in some cases it offers a pretty good laugh. The rest of the time I just tune them out, go to the fridge or turn the channel...just like I'm supposed to.

Someday, it's all going to change again...and the Office Depot Rubberband Man and Budweiser Chameleons will be all but a memory. Enjoy it while it lasts.
