I love targeted marketing. I realized at a very young age with bad ear problems (many days home from school in pain) that commercials target the people that are watching the program.
Watch MTV for 24 hours, and tell me if you see a single commercial for denture adhesive. Now, watch "The Price Is Right" on a weekday and count how many ads for adult dipers, home pharmaceutical companies, diabetes testing supplies, and reverse mortgages you see.
Watch Sprout or any of the other young children's channels and all you see are ads for gerber baby food and pampers.
Maybe if you start watching MTV, or Sprout, you won't see those commercials anymore!
HAHAHA I'm kidding of course. I have started to poke fun at the bad actor(divane I think) on the Rosalind capitol commercials. He went from flying a plane, to riding a horse, and now I think he is leaning on a fence. They must have spent hundreds and hundreds of dollars just paying someone to think of all the places they could put him to give the same stupid speech.
The commercials that really really bother me are the ones that are for E.D. or a certain product that they claim "blows your hair back." Anyone with young children, or just respectable adults do not need to be bombarded with endless commercials like that. It's a product we all know exists, but I don't think advertising it is necessary.
Predators... That's what some of these companies are. It's almost as bad as the way John Deere floods the market with all types of advertising and marketing to children who can't use a toilet, let alone drive farm machinery! They do so much advertising to disguise the fact that almost everything they make is junk! :wink: :wink: :lol:
