Three Years Of Pleasure

This evening, Halloween night of 2009 will mark the three-year anniversary of my first-ever upload to YouTube. I had stumbled onto the site sometime in the Spring or Summer of 2006 by clicking on URLs that were posted to the Love Hounds newsgroup on Usenet, a Kate Bush fan group, to see videos of Kate Bush. So it was my enjoyment of Kate’s music that brought me here initially… As the summer went on, I found more URLs that brought me to YouTube. I remember one being a Japanese video of cats grabbing all kinds of fish entitled something like “Too Cute.” So how did I discover the community? I must have clicked on one of the related videos, and I saw some old guy just talking into a camera about being grumpy. This linked me to another old guy and another, and then I discovered some women talking into cameras, and my mind was blown away that ordinary everyday people just like me, not just actors, could make little movies of themselves and share them with the world! This was one thing that I had to get in on somehow. I had taken a couple of film school courses way back in the mists of time because that interested me, but I couldn’t take that seriously because I was training to be a scientist. As it turns out, I didn’t make a very good scientist, but I do digress… I bought a digital camera because my girlfriend wanted to take some pictures on an upcoming vacation in Mexico, and I discovered that the digital camera could shoot video, so now five or six digital cameras and

Doning an advertising reveiw and need help answering these three questions?

Question by Japer787: Doning an advertising reveiw and need help answering these three questions?
1-This type of PR program deals with anticipating the possibility of a disaster and how to deal with bad news?

2-This type of posttest has respondents report what advertisements they remember seeing (without assistance) as opposed to a recognition test, which shows respondents ads, then asks if they remember them?

3-The point where advertising gets tired and there is no response, or less response than at the beginning of the campaign?

Best answer:

Answer by wineboy
You do realize that if academics knew a single thing about advertising or marketing they’d get jobs in it and make about 10x what they make “teaching” their uninformed nonsense, don’t you?

I’ve worked in advertising since the 80s and I can barely understand the freaking questions.

The first question is just inane. No PR company (and especially no client) is going to spend money coming up with a plan for something that “might” happen. There are specific methods for getting in front of bad news, so spending the time and money and effort of people to get ahead of speculative “what if” scenarios when there is real work to be done every day is something only a self-impressed academic could possibly think happens.

Post-test? Post what? Oh, you mean after the ads have run? I suppose your beard twit means “unaided awareness.”

This one, I suppose your bearded twit may mean wear out.

By the way, don’t listen to anything this clown has to say. Seriously, he knows less than nothing….
