Ask the Experts?

Last week we kicked around some gender bending topics here. Turns out Graumagus at Frizzen Sparks had some words to say on the whole "Men are from Mars, Women are from Venus" thing as well. He contends that the ad execs on Madison Avenue seem to be a good source of info, since their livelihood is based on marketing to the right group. One warning - if you are sensitive to the F-word, you really don't want to go there ;-)

What do you think? Does Madison Avenue have your number? When was the last time that you saw an ad and thought "Wow - I'm going to go right out and buy that!"?

Personally, I get as big a kick out of funny ads as the next person, and I watch the Super Bowl mostly for the commercials. But I can't think of the last time I saw a product or service advertised and went out to buy it.


Dusty at Castle Argghhh! has a choice item about Executive Think - or lack thereof.

Also, belated credit goes to Acidman at Gut Rumbles, as the inspiration for Grau's musings.
