And learned something new.

De Beers made a killing with that ad campaign, by the way.

The campaign was a massive success, increasing diamond sales by up to 15% and winning the ad industry’s prestigious Gold EFFIE Award.

Decided to look into what the fuck an EFFIE award was, and boy did it not disappoint.

Look at this shit. They not only tell you about manipulating people, but they show you exactly how they do it. What research and effort went into it, etc. Fucking amazing if you ask me. You know how when you were a kid and always loved the pictures of cross sectioned shit like a cruise ship, battle ship, airplane, tank, submarine, etc? This is the fucking adult version of that shit.

The word "misogyny" is like a bad joke, dropped at the first sign of trouble.

Interesting ... advertising has come a long way, apparently, from the days of Vance Packard's The Hidden Persuaders.

My emotional relationship with Ritz crackers finally took a big dump.

Package size manipulation starting in 2008 now followed by a huge change in the product itself. Tasteless crumbly crap.

No amount of advertising can compensate for a bad product or bad customer service.

The two videos are plenty cringe worthy. Reading trade magazines can be very telling, especially the advertising world. Most businesses thrives on stupid people buying useless crap and services they don't need.

I purposely ignore ads. I look away or only at the spot where the X will be on Android ads. I fast forward through ads on any recorded TV program. I mute anything that gets past my popup and ad blockers.

I can't be sold anymore. If I want something I do the research and choose the product that fits my needs. No ad in the world will change that behavior for me.

When speaking with most women I find my capacity to give a damn has been overshadowed by an over abundance of go fuck yourself.

I looked into the abyss. At first I was afraid but then I looked further and studied it. After a while I began to understand the abyss. Then the abyss looked back at me, I smiled and it ran.
