Just a quick one here today.
Sometimes I watch these videos and think to myself, “come on.” And I click away. Then other times, well, the proof is in the pudding (or…production).
Each and every day we’re exposed to marketing angles coming from all sorts of companies. Tobacco, pharma, insurance companies, movies and the countless other “touches” we have with big name brands.
But have you ever wondered or felt as though they were masters of manipulation?
Do you ever feel paranoid that there are messages being slipped in the ad copy or images that your subconscious mind is picking up?
Take a look at this video I watched earlier today. It depicts how sexually-centric messages are being embedded in advertisements. If you find the topic of sex offensive or inappropriate then please skip this video.
However, it’s an interesting look at some of the common advertising and imagery we’re routinely exposed to in the media.
It got stuck in my head (hmm…maybe that was the intent?)
Let’s chat about it. Is this video just paranoia stemming from a distrust of marketing and advertising agencies or are we, as consumers, being brainwashed?
Let me know in the comments below if advertisers are manipulating you…
