I'm firmly planted in the anti-marketing/anti-advertising market which, as many of you advertising schlocks and Bill Hicks fans know, is a huge market. Advertisers would love to get there greedy little paws on this group. It must be the delicious taste of ironing found in the anti-marketing market that tempts the PR crowd so.
Advertisers see any popular group activity and think to themselves, "What would a commercial parasite do?". It's one thing to wait patiently for someone to ask for information about your product and/or service and it's quite another to stuff it into any and every available space where it fits. The latter seems to be the more ubiquitous trend in the world of ads.
I bring this up because some dude left scattered comments all over my blog the other day which solely linked to some crap clearinghouse ad site. Curse you spam robots!
Anyway, here's another Bill Hicks clip and even though he died before the current manifestation of the Iraq war, he was right on.
