Perfect time for this JC Penney tv ad:
No, the TV shows will BE the commercials. Actually, this is already true. Product placement in movies and TV shows is rampant. Remember how the cigarette companies used to pay filmmakers to feature their brands in a movie?.....that was child's play compared to today.....
And may I add (no pun intended)? After reading all the comments here, I've decided there are two kinds of TDPRI members.....those who acknowledge they are influenced by TV commercials, and those who don't REALIZE they are influenced by TV commercials. (I call them commercial deniers )
ALL commercials are irritating. Because of this I watch very very little TV.
Did you see the “lease an Aston Martin for only $1799/mo” commercial?
I realize it seems annoying or holier than thou to say this, but we ditched our tv over a decade ago. The relentless dumb vulgarity, the braying commercials. I mean I’d see commercials that were clever and witty and then I’d see them again and again and again, and everything sucks if it’s overdone. Now I watch tv if we are at a bar or maybe a friends house and they are almost never advertising stuff that I’m interested in. I guess I moved into a different demographic.
but I’m certainly still susceptible to advertising or marketing. I’m more inclined to get it through social media— boutique pedals, specialized gear, sometimes the crap that advertised on the sites I tend to go to. I still construct a need for things that objectively I don’t need. Right now I’m thinking of ordering a handmade wooden “Irish” flute from the guy alleged to be the greatest maker of wooden flutes in the world. Why? I mean it’s not driven by advertising—the guy doesn’t advertise. And yet here I am thinking of plunking down a very significant chunk o change.
I guess my point is advertising isn’t necessary for irrational consumption
I have a $180 32 inch Samsung. I doubt it has those features.
YouTube is being destroyed by advertising.
And to those posters that say they’re in the wrong demographic. High rating shows get cancelled because they attract the wrong demographic. The idiocy hits peak around that point.

Having observed many changes over the years Advertising will go to the internet regardless of Adblocker or other applications. Commercial TV will still retain them but the commercials so short and uninformative you go to the internet site to get your information.
I am looking for a wood stain and despite locating the dealer, I get the address,: so, I have to go there. No phone, no email address and this is a big chain of paint, wood stains, finishes etc. Once you're in the store they have a customer. Welcome to the 21st.Century Folks!
I rarely watch the big three, 7, 9 and 10 after the 6pm news.... and watch abc sbs programs the most...and I'm always on the PC, so TV is a side thing across the room...
ads are still there, but they're not the mindless repeated ads of the commercial channels...and go for shorter times...
I agree that ads get into your head.... for me it's an anti thing where I won't consider those products... I don't consider myself a consumer looking for the next thing to buy that I don't need......
I've never seen an ad from any guitar makers on oz tv.... ...cheapskates...
At the store I'm buying things at the cost per oz. Price. I'm quite shocked when I recognize the product name. If I do I recheck my math.
Once in a great while I need to buy a product and I recall a fun commercial so I decide if not to expensive I'll buy to reward the enjoyable commercial. Damn if I can remember what brand it was even if I loved the commercial. Advert fail.
I cannot stand Chevy’s JD Power “initial quality” award commercials.
The JD Power award must be easier to get than a social disease from a prostitute.
My nephew is an attorney for a big advertising firm in Los Angeles.
I have spent a few hours talking with him about the current advertising world. It sounds like most of it is accidental. Good writers are hard to come by and so lots of what we are forced to watch are nothing but rehashed commercial ideas. If it worked once it might work again!
I mute all commercials when I watch tv. Except for these two companies. They are truly funny:
I totally agree!
Fun commercials. Never once bought. Because they have amused I might if I ever run across any. If it's only a buck or so more maybe. Otherwise they wasted money on me. Am I just immune to advertising?
Careful...there was a time when we wouldn't have thought we'd ever see BMW or Porshe marketing 4WD ...it's a new world.
These don't work very well either. Sometimes I'm shopping for a new product where I'm ignorant so I search. Google floods me. I check a few and find my own research and the rest is wasted while they advertise to me for the next 3 months on something I already bought that's half the price or better features so when I look I just reinforce my belief to never buy what's thrown at me.
I prefer that too. But if I can get my wife to get away from that and it saves me 30 or 60 a mo to stream, i don't care.
