Same old stock.
Watching an advert on an old video casette I had I thought,see the song that was on it was one of those Arthur Askey type songs.
"...busy,busy bee...something something"
I don't remember exactly how it went but the main point was that it was a silly song...no more like a ditty about a bee going around being busy and the singer thought about how delightful it would be to be one dashing from flower to flower on a barmy English summer day.
The song made me think of my nan as this is exactly the type of music she would sing to me as a boy,she used to like silly tunes such as this. Meaningless happy little numbers that were made just to enjoy.
Then the next advert came on and it was a Pepsi one,the celebs employed this time were the Black Eyed Peas and I thought...how the HELL did we get to the point were sex sells EVERYTHING!
It's really sad,no tragic and I don't yearn for times were you could leave your door unlocked becuase "there were never no trouble 'round 'ere when those lovely Kray twins were in charge guv",but it's horrible how the Pepsi advert didn't even seem to be focussed on their drink but rather the sex appeal of the band and the teenagers (who the viewer are supposed to be) that appeared on it.
Now obviously I am man #768908645 to go over this subject and other far more eridite have tackled this topic but at which juncture did the human race race get to where they couldn't have fun without sex being top of the agenda.
Why do the women always have to be attractive in the manner of which the Greek mask of symetrical beauty dictates?
Why do guys have to be muscular to be THE man?
Since when did we live in a world where only people of a certain shape have sex or sex appeal anyway?
Infact I give it five years before Ronald McDonald turns into a coquettish,burlesque whore,well it's someones wet dream I suppose.
This wouldn't be so bad if there was a refuge from this type of advertising,an alturnitive that wasn't asexual but an affirmation that there is simple fun to be had without the burnt-suger taste of over-sold fuck based advertising.
This is advertising companies fill our world in sich a complete,air tight manner we can't breath well unless you want to opt-out of a country that doesn't use electric.
See porn...fine porn without sex is knitting but at the same time knitting advertised with sex is more pearl necklace than pearl-one.
See it's like this they promote a product with sex because they fool us into think that we gain have more sex by proxy of buying said product. Problem is sex is never what is really being sold it's the I-Pod or Police sunglasses or whatever.
They the advertising companys sells sex without ever having said product on their shelves but they don't care because all they wan tto do is fool you into think you are buying sex appeal when really you are just purchasing a phone,trainers or aftershave.
Funny to think people find prostitution to be a decietful game,strange to say but at least the have what they are selling. However saying that it's sad it's theor to buy anyway :/
