    ...well, what can anyone say? America is pretty much turning into the Roman Empire... not in a bad way, but also not in a good way. ^.^


    ..."Every kiss begins with Kay"... ? ........... Kay's lips must hurt... XD JK!

    ..."Tyco, that's how you spell RC!" ... O.o No it's not!

    Lol, actually it's a rather amusing subject.

    I knew several people in marketing and they told me I would be surprised by how much sex there is in advertising because it is considered one of the big sales pitches. After they told me that I started looking and you know what? It was all over. Then a few years ago someone did a study to find out whether or not sex really did sell (expecting the answer to be yes). They were stunned when they discoved that it actually had the opposite result. While it was true that people remembered the advertising they discovered that they remembered the sexual imagery and not the product being sold! lol The people in the study had a harder time remebering the names of products being sold with sexual adverising than the products without.

    So in other words yes sex sells, but all it sells is sex.

    I heard that the porn company earns more money than basketball, football, hockey, and boxing sports combined.

    .......sounds far-fetched, but I wouldn't be too surprised.

    It's the number 2 subject searched for on the net right now. The first is Geneology.

    Yeah, that survey Arrianna mentioned was really hillarious. One of the poor couples involved was a preacher and his wife. They had to watch 10+ hours of WWF and Jerry Springer like programs. Poor fellow about died of heart attack.

    The commericals that are remembered are the ones that really stick the product in with the message (usually humor). Anyone remember "Zest with Latherthingy"? Or how about the 'sexual' hostess cupcake commercial? Those products were so intergrated into the message that they were one in the same.

    On the other hand can any of us really tell beer commericals apart anymore (Besides Captain Morgan)? Same with Tag and Axe body sprays. Yeah, those commericals make people notice the sex but really, they all start looking the same. You tune the product out and just look at the sex. So, in the end, your advertising for a group of products more then you are your brand of that group.

    It was a fasinating study....I hope the preacher and his wife actually surive it.

    Every advertisement contains at least one hot woman. So it has to sell. It's annoying - and I'm a fan of such pics.
    It cannot differ across countries, because everyone is just copying what the US. do.

    I'll buy the things that I want and honestly the ads don't influence me too much. But thats not to say that I don't enjoy looking at the models.

    Thinking is the leading cause of death among the stupid.
