  1. ads are a waste of time. If I see an ad I make sure not to buy that product, in fact I will look for the competition and buy that one instead. Screw em.

  4. Have you ever met someone in Advertising who wasn't full of B.S.? They appropriate the talent of others and sell it to those who have more money than taste. They are parasites who feed from consumerism.

  5. "The American Dream" and "Patriotism" were both created by the incredibly financial (because "They" print the money) Sabbatean Jews to totally emotionally and psychologically ENSLAVE EVERYONE!! Isn't time in the history of the human-race for all American's (and the rest of the world) to Wake-UP UNITE and publicly expose and oust these evil and insane Jewish parasites and their "Secret" Society Freemason puppet slaves (who themselves are equally enslaved by their own creations, beliefs and greed) and to take back and to recreate this "Dream" and "Patriotism" so as we the world will no longer give power to these outrageous hidden liar's, mass deceivers and traitors to the human-race whom in a future system would be immediately publicly shamed (throughout all world media outlets)and oust not only the individual but also their families who would be used as a psychological deterrent? The entire human-race (these parasites included) are all miracles of life but we have all been miss-led by a new world unquestioning cult religion (created by Jews) called:- Consumerism, Credit and Greed with huge new Temples where millions unquestioningly flock to commonly known as "Super-markets and Shopping malls!" (research who actually owns them all!) which is all designed to enslave and never to consciously free the individual… EVERYONE has been born with an innate sensation we collectively call LOVE so lets start to worship and explore the powers of this wonderful emotion as this and only this can and will UNITE the Human-Race… Amen!

  6. I don't have cable TV and I use an ad blocker here so I only watch the best Super Bowl or Europe's Best ads for example and only when I feel like it but I have to admit that on the creative side these people work very hard and I am often impressed by their brilliant ideas and irreverent sense of humour, the entertainment factor is vital, that's why I personally disagree with political and pharmaceutical ads, where's the fun? WAZZAAAAAA!
