are brands decaying? people are becoming more conscious.... not only more media savvy, jaded, fed up with being manipulated, but literally, more aware of subtle energy, the intention of marketers comes through the ads to the point of reeking, and they are clearly, obviously, NOT interested in me, only in themselves
to a person with any sort of developed subtle awareness, more of us everyday, advertising actually is giving the opposite message of what advertisers think...
ad guys, we have intuition, you cannot fool us, and if you are selfish, you lose
if you actually are trying to help me, i will get that, and probably like you for it...
thx for the comment, i think it's a very good one.
the discussion is happening at the hbs blog, unfortunately - next time, leave it there so everyone else can respond to it.
