DO THEY REALLY THINK WE'RE THAT STUPID!!??
yup, this pretty much falls in the same catagory as "WATER PLUS - mouth watering water!" as one of THE MOST STUPID marketed ideas I've seen in recent months.. there's this new teeth whitener out now called "Colgate - Simply White", it's a clear gel that comes in this funny little bottle.. and you apply it to your teeth with this tiny brush.. wot's really stupid about it tho'.. is the packing is almost IDENTICAL to a bottle of liquid paper (white-out).
Are we led to believe that people are stupid enough to use something that looks identical to white-out to brighten their teeth? coz.. from the look of it, there's not much difference (except perhaps white-out is actually considered highly toxic if you ingest it..)
I can see it now, scores of cheapskates.. being hauled off by paramedics.. after using "squid poo" to get a brighter smile.. (dumb) kids trying to impress their parents as they go "look at me.. I can whiten my teeth TOO.. urrrrrkggkdgkdgllll...."
then again, the intelligence (or lack of) in this product shouldn't suprise me much, coz.. who most of all NEEDS a teeth whitener? wot causes teeth to go all yellow and nasty? yup - smoking! (and don't mention drinking coffee.. or I'll fucken KILL YA.. hahahaha)
so.. if you're stupid enough to buy a few packets a week of stuff that's proven to kill you, well.. then, advertisers assume you'd also be stupid enough to put white-out on ya teeth to get a brighter smile!
good to see they have confidence in the buying public actually possessing a brain.. ;)
advertising - the art of treating your consumers like dumbass zombie sheep, whilst at the same time makin' 'em feel like gods.. yeeeHAH! ;)
