The majority of initial criticism came from guys who actually toiled in the era. The comments targeted the authenticity of details, from the number of client meeting participants to the model of typewriters. No way did executives have booze in the office. Presentations should have displayed a sea of layouts. Research reports would never be tossed in the trash. Creative directors didn’t spew such corny lines. Mastermind Matthew Weiner clearly hadn’t done his homework, griped the bona fide Mad Men. Please. For starters, how reliable are the memories of men who admittedly drank their lunches for decades? Mad Men, like any other ...
an audience (viewers, readers or listeners) to purchase or take some action upon products, ideals, or services.

REVIEWS AND OPINIONS Casual Racism in Advertising
“This is WTF on so many levels. Not least because of massive confusion between dermatology, geography, language and racism. What the hell is Arabic or Asian skin?” I got some really interesting comments and the heartfelt fulminations such as: I think they mean if your skin is darker - I guess they could have said mediterranean or south american too :) are they trying to whiten it? What the fuck for? this is presumably people with dark skin wanting to whiten or lighten their skins. MORONS!, I have a better idea, how about DULUX? they do a great line in white paint. in Matt, Satin or Smooth finish even. I'm in ... market research, surveys and trends

Advertising Is Good For You: Psychographics
According to a Yahoo study of more than 2,000 Web-using consumers who'd made a major purchase recently, 40% were brand advocates . Brand advocates are defined as " opinion leaders who are socially well-connected, express their opinions and viewpoints and continually discover new content online ."

MultiCultClassics: August 2009
During the time when America was segregated, the late, great Nat King Cole’s groundbreaking television show was canceled because Madison Avenue and its clients would not sign on as sponsors. At the time he remarked, “Madison Avenue is afraid of the dark.” Not only was his comment painfully correct, but also eerily prophetic, given that 50 years later Madison Avenue is still discriminating against black Americans. The streets of Madison Avenue are like the segregated graveyards of the past, filled with generations of unrecognized black contributions, talent and ambitions. The New York City Commission on Human ... industry trends, business articles and survey research
Bhopal : A Gas Tragedy
I was confused then and I am worried now. And still it has got nothing to do with Terrorism, Maoists or Himesh Reshamiya. Being a kid when the damn thing happened, I had little or no idea on this whole gas issue. Or I should say I had an overtly embarrassing confusion on the very word called Gas. I still remember when our small classroom filled with more than required number of pupils thrown into some unbearable smell of last night's Paratha and Dahi Wada, our class teacher pointed at the culprit with her ever so shrinking nose and advised him to maintain some civic sense and refrain himself from producing unwanted gas ... market trends, news research and surveys resources
Better Red Than Dead? Advertising Complaints Panel Rules "Red Hair Is Not a ...
illustrating how far political correctness can go when it comes to advertising.  After receiving pages of complaints about a government road safety campaign and a TV spot for ANZ Bank , both of which poke fun at carrot-tops, that country’s Advertising Standards Bureau issued the following priceless ruling : The board noted that the Code does not refer to hair colour or physical attributes of a person and considered that having red hair is not a disability. In the U.S., the First Amendment ensures there will never be a watchdog making politically correct decisions about which ads we can and cannot see, which is a shame ... market trends, news research and surveys resources

Racism and Sexism in Advertising
It seems as if everywhere you turn, someone is trying to be politically correct. Whether it involves minorities or women, racist and sexist comments are no longer tolerated in places such as the school yard and the work place. Why is it, then, that minorities and women are constantly being exploited in everyday advertisements? Television, magazines, and billboards no longer show products, but rather show gimmicks in order to sell their product. In general, these gimmicks seem to enforce racial stereotypes and to view women in a negative way. It appears that on every channel, there is another television commercial trying to sell ...

Is there racism in modern advertising? - Yahoo! Answers
Does modern advertising still contain elements of racism, or has it moved beyond that? If you think there's racism present, can you give some specific examples? I don't really think there's pervading racism in modern ads, but I'm wondering what other people think. the whole idea of diversifying ads seems racist, if you have to think about doing it, then it just seems segregational to me. There are currently no comments for this question. * You must be logged into Answers to add comments. Sign in or Register . BET is a form of racism.
