advertising and other stuff. no, really.

“Diarrhea commercials unnecessary.”

But are they. I came across that while Googling for something about something and came across... something. It’s a page full of feedback about ads and what students dislike about them, from persuasion analysis classes taught by Dr. Hugh Rank. Many responses reiterate the usual slant against marketing and advertising, which is basically: next to politicians, lawyers and car salesmen, advertising is as trusted as John Mark Karr is babysitting your kids.

Still, it’s interesting to hear the wide range of opinions, from pre-teens to adults. Could some of them phrase things better? Sure, ok, but focus on what they’re saying. Some funny yet some insightful things. (And the picture? Pepto Bismol ice cream.)
