Car Adverts And Empty Roads

Recommended Posts

Why are all roads tv ad cars travel on completely empty?

Because they are selling a dream of freedom and the open road. Not the reality of hours spent in traffic jams, or doing nothing parked on the drive/at the workplace car park.

The thing that finally persuaded my Dad to ditch our family car in the early 80s was that he realised he spent more time maintaining and going on crappy errands/to work with it - than enjoying the actual freedom it supposedly brought us. Money wise, it was a lot more.

All landlord adverts have happy tenants, and they always pay on time, pay all rent increases, and never ever trouble you.

stop it, you'll have the Police here explaining to you there is no effort to gain a favourable sale by the purveyors.

Nobody on the road,
Nobody on the beach
I feel it in the air
The summer's out of reach
Empty lake, empty streets
The sun goes down alone
I'm driving by your house
Don't know you're not home

The perfect driving song, by the sea, late autumn.

Because if they tried to sell you a car based on the grim reality of crawling through towns and cities at rush hour then you'd not buy one.

Real selling features would be:

- an auto-crawl mode (which they sort of have with that very low speed anti bump feature) for long traffic jams

- very low fuel use in queues (which they also have with those cars that switch themselves off and back on again as an eco feature)

They don't sell you these features as a way of dealing with queues though.

Yogurt with sweet fruit sauce makes you young, beautiful and healthy.....flavoured water, best thing since sliced bread....sliced bread makes good toasted sandwiches.

Your home is full of germs.....disinfectant your washing, your work surfaces your rim around your loo......unclean people living in unclean homes will suffer big time, germs will take over!!!!!

Cover all nasty smells with aerosol spray...breathe in the droplets into your lungs....smelly socks become clean again....

Fancy creams with special ingredients and a high price will keep you young looking.....when ordinary moisturising creams that are not advertised do the same job for less so you can buy more for longer and use more often.

....because so many things are so similar, that includes cars...it all boils down to What Colour Do You Want.....White is the new Grey.;)

In adverts

In adverts nobody makes their own......in adverts, nobody buys raw ingredients without a brand name and creates a healthy family meal from local seasonal ingredients.

You never see people in adverts watching adverts.

Why would they do that....they already have everything they think you want!...that you don't want. ;)

I loved the brother and sister who wrote into "Home Truths" that their parents had convinced them that, because people would buy all the good stuff anyway, adverts were there to get rid of substandard products that people wouldn't otherwise buy. Consequently if anything was advertised they automatically didn't want it because they knew that it would be rubbish.

When it comes to food for one they are spot on; for the reasons that winkie notes above.

Do we not have the https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Milk_Marketing_Boardor https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Egg_Marketing_Board

or https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Potato_Council spending money on adverts?
