I am remarkably resistant to advertising although I do find many ads amusing. Being amused simply never translates to a purchase with me. I tend to
buy things I already have a need for, (have been contemplating purchasing on my own) and relative price is my primary motivator. (I say relative
because I do consider the social policies of the company I am dealing with, I dont compare Wal-Mart with a company that is selling environmentally
friendly products or "all American made" products for instance.
The only advertising that makes me want things I might not normally buy are food ads. I try to avoid fast food, but when I see a thick juicy burger
on the screen, my stomach responds. I dont go buy it, but I sure as heck want to, and often I go to the fridge looking for something to satisfy the
craving for fat that the ad awakens in me.
