    Advertisements

    JC just posted a TV advertisement from AUS in the late 60's for Harris Coffe and Teas...made me laugh and took me right back to that time

    I was wondering if any of you have had similar exxperiences or just enjoy or are annoyed by some aspects of advertising...its weird how some of the most annoying ads are the most successsfull (Tell 'em the price Son)....555

    Here's one we used to do a punky version of in my band in the late 70's...it was done at about 3x the speed and in a very angry voice...we used it to signal the end of a set (break time) with it...

    Those must be variations of older ones. I remember both from the late 90s.

    This one was pretty good too.

    I and several million Aussies agree but you DID remember it, hate it and that was what John Singleton made millions from.

    We have CNBC on most days in the office of no sports on

    And they don't actually have a big audience so they don't get big ad campaigns

    So the same commerical plays about 40x a day

    It's maddening

    One thing I've noticed about the TV advertisements in Canada is they all try to be politically correct when it comes to race. There will always be a black, and Asian and a white person in the same add. Sometimes it gets quite funny... There will be a black woman with a white man and they will have Asian children... or pick any one combination of the above.

    But you know it's about money right? Private companies want the product to appeal across as big a demographic as possible... and their market research shows what works... it's not PC... it's dollars... unless you are talking about govt-made infomercials?

    Gotta say...I do love these Thai commercials, even though they do (and obviously) go for the heartstrings...I can't watch one without getting a little tear in my eye....and then the zinger at the end...from "Thai Life Insurance Company"...555

    There are loads of good ones...my fave is the one about the kid who steals medicine for his sick mother and ends up being a doctor who helps the street vendor who defends and helps him as a kid....cue the harps....
