  • What is the most shocking advertisment you have seen?
  • There have been a few on those shows from other countries...I think Scandanavia has some interesting ones.
  • What is the funniest advertisement you have seen? Describe it.
  • Hard to say....I was a fan of the Budweiser frogs commercials!!!
  • What makes an ad memorable?
  • For me something that can make me laugh
  • Do you buy products because of advertising?
  • I have to admit sometimes the food and fast food commercials get to me...
  • Do you find advertising persuasive?
  • Not normally
  • Why do you buy one product over another?
  • I take a few things into consideration normally...name, price, if I know the product...
  • Should advertisers be allowed to advertise to children?
  • No, but every Christmastime the airwaves are filled with toy commercials...I hate that!!!!
  • Should alcohol or tobacco companies be allowed to advertise? Why or why not?
  • I don't think Joe Camel made anyone smoke, and the absolut vodka ads didn't make me drink it...and the marlboro man is not interesting to me. Ads didn't make me smoke...
  • What do you think of celebrity endorsements?

  • I don't like them at all. Especially that home house making tv guy doing formula ads....finally saw that in a magazine, awful just awful. I don't care what celebrity is in your expensive jeans I still won't pay $1,000 for them!!!

    What is the most shocking advertisment you have seen?

    caution: not safe for work or small children



    What is the funniest advertisement you have seen? Describe it.

    I always liked this one.



    What makes an ad memorable?

    an unexpected element



    Do you buy products because of advertising?

    Probably… if the advertising is good, you don't even realize it's the reason you're buying something!



    Do you find advertising persuasive?

    Usually it just tries to stick in your mind, but doesn't try to persuade you of anything. The ones that make claims usually sound stupid!



    Why do you buy one product over another?

    It could be cheaper, or in a better color, or look like it will last longer, or any number of reasons. It really depends.



    Should advertisers be allowed to advertise to children?

    I hate advertising to anyone, to be honest.



    Should alcohol or tobacco companies be allowed to advertise? Why or why not?

    I don't think they should be more or less restricted than anyone else. As I said, I hate all advertising and I wish we could just do word of mouth for everything but that's not going to happen. We don't need Coca-Cola in our lives any more than we need cigarettes and I don't see much difference in allowing one or the other to advertise.



    What do you think of celebrity endorsements?

    I do not personally care what celebrities advertise or don't.
