I seriously wonder whether advertisements are worth the money, wherever they are. Ignored on TV by whizzing past on recorded programmes, in the street because people are looking at their phones, on phones/internet because they are irrelevant.99% of all advertising, apart from the 1% truly original stuff that makes I laugh, but I'll never see a new funny one because I never sit through the ads.
It's fecked the internet and radio.
Boosted streaming due to the endless commercial breaks.
There are anti-adds that convince me never to buy their products, especially anything dubbed, with a hint of political correctness or diversity (or even all three).
Is the investment in marketing and advertising worth it? I can't think of a single ad that made want to buy anything.
Put the money into wages, R&D and better products.
