Retrograde ads (and their underlying assumptions)

Charu describes an atrocious ad for Camlin permanent markers.

Brad DeLong discusses the contents of two ads, and the kind of hidden messages they carry. They are not quite in the same league as the SBI debit card ads, though.

    speechless. there are so many idiots in the profession (as in every other profession, i guess, just that some stick their necks out more than others).

    Abi, I can never figure out what disturbs me more - such ads or people's response to them. each time I blog about such ads, I just sit back and wait for the nasty attacks.
