1. Do you like advertisements on TV?
Oh no, TV is a purgatory. The TV advertisements today appear to be not only boring but also disturbing. They interrupt in the midst of our enjoyment of a game or a film. Most of the advertisement materials are irritating and of course of low taste. The presentation is mostly awkward and obscene.
2. What kind of advertisement do you like the most?
Word of mouth is hands down the best advertising. It's one of the most credible forms of advertising because every time people make a recommendation, they have nothing to gain but the appreciation of those who are listening.
3. Why do you think there are so many advertisements now?
Whether you do like them or not, whenever and wherever it's possible that you can meet them. For biz sellers, ad could be very helpful to promote their products. For accepters, ads might show some latest information. To buy or not to buy, to be fond of or not, all depend on your decisions.
4. What are the various places where we see advertisements?
Today, media is so blatantly filled with advertising: TV, radio, magazine, newspaper, billboards. Even more pathetic when I recently watched a 16 second clip with a two-minute commercial without the option to skip. I think many advertisements are brain-washing us.
5. How do you feel about advertisements?
I hate advertising because the people behind it is so good at making us feel or think a certain way. They are good at getting our attention and planting the seeds of emotion and through that they can convince us of non-truths: We’re too old, too fat, too ugly, behind the times, unintelligent, our car is too slow, TV too small, couch too hard, x too y, y too x.
6. Do advertisements influence your choice about what to buy?
No. I don't let some schmucks tell me what I'm going to buy, cars, computers, or whatever. If I'm interested in a product, a car for example, I will look at the comments on line in advance, but I don't make a decision based on an advertisement.
