But like srsly, please meet this weeks nomination for oxygen thief of the week-
The trouble with America’s $700bn bail-out is the “B” word itself – bail-out, say advertising chiefs. Branding expert Jonathan Gabay considers how a little creative story-telling could have saved a whole lot of financial turmoil. It has, according to some of the sharpest advertising minds in. America, a “failure of branding”. Had President George Bush concentrated on the word “rescue” when selling the $700bn “bail-out” package, say ad chiefs, the plan might have sailed through Congress rather than first being rejected.
The comments on the page are uniformly aghast and condemnatory of this appalling corporate whore’s debasement of democratic deliberation (quite an achievement for BBC threads, which usually attract retarded bigots swapping BNP code words like flies on shit). I’ll concede he’s right insomuch that if you sell crap well a certain number of rubes will buy it, that’s the one thing our culture is successful at- producing gullible consumers bereft of critical thinking skills and individuality. However it is not any achievement or something to base your life on- shilling tat to morons. You can see them anywhere, wearing disposable fashion that one month ago was on a container ship from China (yes even the expensive designer labels snobbos, a gilt edged sheep’s still a fucking sheep) their tastes are what were decided in corporate design meetings 12 months ago, they keep buying the same items just in a different package, different colour palette and capitalism lumbers on. But this bullshit scam, the opposition is real from the street on up, no atsroturfing. Genuine outrage from people who know a shiny suited con when they see it. No branding would change that but thanks Mr. Gabay for taking such a principled & arrogant stance in support of disaster capitalism, I’m sure you think you’re not like Dick Cheney, however- FAIL. And now because clearly he has neglected to take Mr Hicks advice (and he really fucking should) here it is again-
By the way if anyone here is in advertising or marketing… kill yourself.
No, no, no it’s just a little thought. I’m just trying to plant seeds. Maybe one day, they’ll take root – I don’t know. You try, you do what you can. Kill yourself.
Seriously though, if you are, do.
Aaah, no really, there’s no rationalisation for what you do and you are Satan’s little helpers. Okay – kill yourself – seriously. You are the ruiner of all things good, seriously. No this is not a joke, you’re going, “there’s going to be a joke coming,” there’s no fucking joke coming. You are Satan’s spawn filling the world with bile and garbage. You are fucked and you are fucking us. Kill yourself. It’s the only way to save your fucking soul, kill yourself.
Planting seeds. I know all the marketing people are going, “he’s doing a joke…” there’s no joke here whatsoever. Suck a tail-pipe, fucking hang yourself, borrow a gun from a Yank friend – I don’t care how you do it. Rid the world of your evil fucking Read the rest of this entry »
