"QUANTUM SHOT" #491

The Worst Time to Buy, the Best Time to Enjoy Ads

With the severe economic downturn, you are less likely to go and buy things, but at the same time, you can now dream and scheme more freely, not concerned with the particulars for a moment... "A long time ago, in a galaxy far far away... I bought this humongous 150-inch plasma screen TV... 11 speakers and a subwoofer".

Advertisers know this, and play to our highly imaginative human side, producing highly visual, spectacular ads. Enjoy looking at them, knowing that nobody needs to catch up with Joneses any more (Joneses very probably worked at the Lehman Brothers...)


(see other ads from this series here and here)

Even grass is not immune for promotional schemes any more:

Homer Simpson was painted next to the 180ft giant in the hillside above Cerne Abbas, Dorset - an ancient fertility symbol, which has been there for many centuries.

The beer tram is really good. I often travel with it to the school. There is another one beer tram in Pilsen. For more on both see this site: http://www.plzensketramvaje.cz/?page=kt8d5-rn2p.htm . The only thing I can add is that you get really thirsty during traveling by this tram :-))

The funny thing about the tram:

There are sensors in seats and they count how much people is siting in two halfs of tram.

http://www.plzensketramvaje.cz/plzen/293skorep.jpg

There is a display which displays the numbers. "Domácí" means the home team and "Hosté" means the visiting team. It is like football score, because Gambrinus sponsors the footbal league.

So what's up with calling a robot "Russian"? What, all Russians are communists? Really?
