I've always felt the best way to sell a product is to give money off, or better still to send out a sample. Personally I think it's next to useless telling me something smells of oranges and peaches with a hint of vanilla, I need to smell it and smell it on me!
I looked at some adverts and felt they didn't actually make me want to buy the product at all, at times I didn't even know what the advert was for.
This lovely little pink advert for Miss Dior perfume makes me think of sunny days and that pink flowers are pretty and maybe I should buy some to put on my desk. Not once do I think about purchasing perfume.
Now this lovely Gucci advert just makes me long for the clothes in the picture - I don't even really notice the watch.
And this one - sorry who is it for again - all I am thinking about is red lipstick and how it's been a while since I wore it, something I used to wear nearly every day.
More perfume to buy? All I thought about was wanting to go on holiday.
Yeah you got it - I just see the cat ears and think about when I was a child and always dressed up as a cat for Halloween parties and then I start wondering if there are any photographs of such parties.
I still have no clue what this is an advert for - all I know is that I want spiral stairs that look like piano keys - but only if I can manage to ever buy my own home.
So, what is the point? Why are the media so powerful? Am I just invincible to this? Or did I just hit on this being the biggest waste of money? It can't be can it for the millions to still be spent on advertising. Seriously though would anyone buy perfume just based on an advert? Maybe it's just me that likes to find things and stumble across things - it also just makes me think of the movie Josie and The Pussycats....and how none of us should become a part of the brainless masses.
