9 boring products sexed up to sell
From shoes to computers, here are some ordinary items using sex to grab consumers' attention and juice sales.
Quite frankly....I think if anyone needs 'sex' to buy something....Dr. Phil has a chair for you. I don't buy a thing because of the ad or the brand....I buy something because I have read the label, it's something that is useful in my life, price, quality and have heard reviews on the product from everyday users.
Most commercials are ridiculously stupid, unappealing, usually have NOTHING to do with the product itself or are totally inappropriate. I channel surf during commercials or have a second show on channel recall. If on the DVR, skip over commercials. I want to watch the show not the ads.
Even as a child NEVER got the hoopla over movie stars, singers, models, etc....living vicariously through someone else's life....yeah...genius and CREEPY! Ogling and oozing over skin....really? Skin you would never be able to touch in reality? Strangers oozing all over each other....ewww! Sounds like immature, mindless numbskulls who follow like the Lemmings w/o a clue to the slaughter.
