Been too busy to do much of anything that is not an assignment or family related but had to share this cute video we saw in class the other day:





Truth in Advertising

18 03 2010

I have to say I found this hilarious:

Some of their ads were too frank apparently and the network wouldn’t show them. But I can’t wait to see this one:

Another spot, which will make its debut next month, opens with a woman strolling confidently toward the camera. “I’m a believably attractive 18- to 24-year-old female,” she says. “You can relate to me because I’m racially ambiguous. Market research shows that girls like you love girls like me.” The sense of an ad somehow deconstructing itself continues, as she says, “Now I’m going to tell you to buy something. Buy the same tampons I use. Because I’m wearing white pants, and I have good hair, and you wish you could be me.” Screen text near the end of the spot asks, “Why are tampon ads so obnoxious?” (NY Times)
