The extra ways in which we’ve to devour media the extra methods there are for corporations to market their merchandise to customers. Not too way back manufacturers needed to primarily depend on advert areas in magazines and newspapers, however that shortly modified as soon as radios and televisions took over, and now that’s modified once more with the rise of the web and social media. That’s the beauty of good ol’ capitalism, of us!
It’s inescapable and guidelines us all.
By way of Twitter, manufacturers have spent the final six years or so attempting to maneuver away from blatant ads and begin turning into extra and , as a result of nothing sells packaged snack meals to the hip youths of in the present day higher than pretending a company model account is a sentient being and tweeting issues like “I’m so depressed in the present day ugh.”
However there are just a few exceptions.
Some advert methods have remained the identical all through the ages although. In different phrases, some ads have traditionally at all times been dangerous and in a manner that’s type of comforting. Perfume commercials, for instance, are actually essentially the most over-the-top and unnecessarily dramatic issues ever. Why are they at all times black and white?? Why a lot wind?? Is that girl rolling round on a seashore in a flooring size robe??? The place did all these silk scarves come from?? HOW DOES THIS SELL PERFUME??
We’ve all come to count on epic three minute lengthy dramas from sure corporations, however this advert is essentially the most further, and it’s for absolutely the final company you’d ever count on.
Prefer it genuinely makes no goddamn sense.
I received’t spoil it (but) so go forward and watch first.
Did you watch it?
Are you sitting there considering “what the shit was that” or “how did an commercial company really receives a commission to make this” or “I can’t consider I simply spent two minutes of my life watching it”? BECAUSE THAT’S WHAT WAS RUNNING THROUGH MY HEAD AFTERWARDS.
HOW DOES A TWO-AND-A-HALF-MINUTE-LONG DRAMATIC-AS-ALL-HELL UNFOLDING OF A MAN BEING BORN AND GROWING UP AND EXPERIENCING HEARTBREAK AND FIGHTING WITH HIS PARENTS AND GOING ON SOME AMBIGUOUS JOURNEY PROBABLY TO “FIND HIMSELF” OR SOME SUCH SHIT HAVE ANYTHING TO DO WITH SUBWAY SANDWICHES.
IT’S… A SANDWICH.
AND I FEEL LIKE I JUST WATCHED THE “FOR YOUR CONSIDERATION” REEL FOR A RICHARD LINKLATER FILM.
Please… simply inform me what new bread choices you might have and go.
