Angryness of the day: product/service + bizarre advertising = PROFIT! YAY C(r)APITALISM!

By: Daryl

Advertising is supposed to increase my desire and awareness about a product, service, or brand. However, ad designers do not seem to know this. Apparently, their goal is to confuse, alienate, or frighten me into buying their product or service.

Take the ad above. Now, I don't need reading glasses, as I have perfect 20/20 vision. Apparently, the rumored side-effects of all that teenage self-abuse were false, THANK GOD. Anyway, here is what I learned from the ad: If I use 'Zoom' brand reading glasses, I will be able to see well enough to solve my knock-off "Rubiks-esque" cube, and have a giant man-hand compress my chest cavity."

  1. If you need glasses to see the cube in your hand, you've got bigger problems. But I feel your pain. My favorite ads are about "enjoying the go," and "respecting the V" (toilet paper and feminine odor cream, respectively).
