grrrripewater for the ad agencies


ADS INSULT OUR INTELLIGENCE AND CATER TO ILLUSION AND THE LOWEST COMMON DENOMINATOR - FOR THE MOST PART! 

Money should not be allowed to rule your life - lack of or plenty of.

Neither should sexuality. 

Everything in balance.

That's what I aspire to, anyway. 

At what point does the whole kaboodle up and explode? The volume of snake oil being shoveled at the television viewer is astonishing. 

If enough truly talented artists contribute their skills to selling what is really nothing but dollar-swelling to the few and not really much good to anyone else - least of all the poor sliced, diced and dissected consumer, everything is sure to explode. This is done without a thought to the long term ramifications of selling nonsense in the very best light possible. They made cigarettes highly desirable for all those years, not so? Even long after everybody knew how toxic they were/are. How grim a harvest we did reap!

Without scruples,  music is used, which was created and is especially sentimental and meaningful to entire generations, to great effect to sell products which in and of themselves do absolutely no good for the betterment of humanity or our planet. In fact, 'no good' is mild term for horrific consequences.  Is there a justification for that?

A good ad agency could make the devil look good - but does the fact that the agency was contracted to do a job and did it well - alleviate them from personal responsibility of the consequences of that message? 

Somewhere in all the glitsy, ear piercing ads blasting and beguiling us via all forms of communication, every now and again there comes a genuine product marketed by genuinely well-motivated companies and those precious gems become lost on the tsunami of crap.

THOUGHT:

If you pay for cable or satellite TV why should you have to watch commercials?

If you are to watch commercials you should be paid - or TV should be free to watch..
