What about the commercials that aren't photos?
Habits and tradition stick because Humans are creatures of habit.
I have been in Merchandising and marketing before, you'd be surprised how much stuff is done to appeal to human nature.
THe watch thing I always thought was to not obscure branding, and there was the whole it looks like it smiling. Because it was always done that way
it will continue simply because its habit, even as it moves to new media and such.
Just thought of an example of this that bothered me, Try not to buy from the shelf from your waist to eye level, I guarantee products on that level
will have paid more to be put there.
That or its more expensive, Why? because humans are naturally lazy, many will go for the item at reach level, even if more expensive rather than bend
down to get the cheaper product.
Advertising and Marketing is an entire field dedicated to convince, coerce or trick you into buying.
Thats a real conspiracy, and it involved your watch example, no codes, simple manipulation of human nature.
