Art of Persuasion 4: The Art of Conclusion

In most cases; series should never go beyond 3 parts; Indiana Jones 4 was terrible, Harry potter books burnt out after the Prisoner of Azkaban and did anyone even watch the last 3 seasons of Lost?

But in the case of this blog I’m willing to make an exception.

I’m NOT saying that it won’t be terrible; I’m just giving you guys a heads up…

AANNNYWAYS…

For anyone that’s been to the website failblog.org, you’ve seen the majority of the world Fail. That’s what most people do best, like this guy…


Along with people, advertising campaigns are very susceptible to failing.

A good example of this is a campaign that didn’t come out too long ago but failed so quickly most people might have not even noticed it.

McDonald’s.


Who the fuck doesn’t eat that garbage? That corporation makes so much money every SECOND that they can afford to throw out a million jingles/commercial/poster each week. And if a couple of them bomb, no worries, they can open up another 100 branches in America and make back their money.

Back in 2005 McDonald’s launched a very dumb (yet funny) advertising campaign that featured a young man standing over a double cheeseburger and saying…

Yeah, McDonalds wants you to fuck a sandwich.

Quickly after the launch, McDonald’s pulled the banners and said their marketing department misunderstood the term.  Yeah….SUUURE.

There’s plenty of other cases where you might think “Has advertising gone too far?”

Take Andrew Fischer for example. A young, bright 20-year-old website designer from Ohama, Nebraska. He had the brilliant idea to auction off his forehead for a company to advertise on. Which company coughed up the dough?
SnoreStop.

How much did Andrew get for his five-head?

$37,375 for a month.

Not bad, I guess I would probably do that, but there are probably more profitable ways off selling your body…Amirite Ladies?


Yummmm, Grandma’s apple pies…

In closing….Advertising is very important to our society; it provides a means for employment and creates opportunity for new industries to be developed.

Walk away from these blogs knowing that anytime you have to close a pop-up or you have to sit through commercials on the TV or Radio, you’re making someone money.

And also know that I hate the Progressive car insurance chick…

And Ketchup, I hate Ketchup…but more on that later.
