for what it’s worth

stories and stimulus from a consumer insight consultant


In Stores Now is a great site that makes fun of how far brands are infiltrating our lives by placing advertising in the most controversial settings. Among those displayed are ideas for ‘branding’ strippers, animals and places/items of worship. Funny images, but how long until we see a company push the boundaries of taste and utilise such ideas? Many have come close through ‘sponsorship’ and ‘charity’ deals enabling a huge amount of product promotion and placement around these areas, but i’ve yet to see a logo on a bible. Is this the future of advertising? And will brands soon be buying our skins, if not our souls?
