"Made to crave" - Wendy's
You've got a point, there's is absolutely no relation between what they sell and that statement.
Anyone who's ever shaved with a Gillette product probably wonders about their statement "the best a man can get" too.
Or seen a shopping cart bump the body on a newer F150 and then thinks about "built Ford Tough".
No offense intended to owners or stockholders.
I guess there really is no truth in advertising!
But, that was my point...
Made, as with ingredients (natural flavors) that stimulate our taste buds making us want more, crave.
Everytime I think I've seen the "most" outrageous TV ad I can imagine, another one comes along to exceed it. The ridiculous claims of "best, tastiest, most beautiful, etc" are bad enough....but what I think are even worse are the ones that portray dangerous, and even illegal behavior to sell a product. Mostly, it's auto ads, and the aggressive driving shown. Volvo, among a few others, used to tout their safety features as a reason to buy their cars, but no longer. Subaru has taken up the mantle to some degree, but I can't recall anyone else. In alcohol ads, if you drink our (beer, rum, wine, whatever) you'll find yourself magically transported to a beautiful beach or tropical locale, cavorting with stunning, athletic young women, who will soon do ANYTHING your heart desires. And of course, since WE are rapidly aging, the drug and medicine companies have taken up these tactics.....showing "young-looking" seniors in very active settings who apparently take the "med-du-jur" to enable them to live the life of a thirty-year younger person. Often, these particular ads only mention the disease or condition they treat in fleeting, abbreviated ways, hoping people will confusingly ask their doctors about the medicine. Are we REALLY as gullible about all this nonsense as we seem to be?.....and to answer my own question.....YES. Yes we are!
"Only A Gibson Is Good Enough"
Sadly, they never shared this with their QC department.
We fall for it in the guitar world, too.
"Vintage nitrocellulose finish lets the tone wood breathe!"
"Warm vintage tone!"
"A proprietary combination of rare earth magnets, hand wound on the inner thighs of Scandinavian virgins!" (I may have just made that one up, but it's not far off).
or some of the product names
NICE AND EASY ......does that imply that after you use it you turn into a skank?
24 HR BODY............does that imply that after you use it you will smell like a recently deceased corpse ?
and yet we buy into it. how gullable are we?
We're aging at the same rate we always did. Just seems faster when the numbers get bigger
Lamest motto ever!
I always go to the local guitar store looking for mediocrity!
"Hey do you have anything that's an average guitar....something just good enough?"
"Well we have this great guitar!"
"No I just want one that's good enough."
and they seal the deal with "free shipping"
I've posted this before but I believe Krusty Brand owns that
I got common sense enough to know the difference between fantasy and reality. I don’t let marketing hype bother me regardless of the product. If I’m buying an unknown I do research and read reviews first. Now get off my lawn!
And Epiphone replied with an ad that said,
"When 'Good Enough' isn't Good Enough"
I learned a new acronym last week from a younger person: GTS.
Hyperbole, definition. GTS.
(Google That Sh#t)
Boy walks into a store and asks to buy a pack of tampons.
Are these for your mother?
No, they're for me.
What do you want tampons for?
I want to go swimming and horse riding and play tennis..
YOU'VE got common sense......I'VE got common sense.......all God's CHILLENS got common sense. So WHY do the advertisers keep insulting out collective intelligence? BECAUSE IT WORKS!!!!!! Every single one of us will say we're not affected by ads and product pushing, but it's a proven fact that simply repetitively saying a product's name increases sales. It's human nature, and the advertisers know nothing if not understanding human nature. You think you can fight it and resist......but you can't.
