we can argue many things about covid, but not the marketing. the marketing was astonishing. never have so many products that did not work been so successfully branded as not just desirable but essential.
truly these people could have sold an electric powered cheese straightener to the lactose intolerant.
it’s ground breaking stuff.
and it’s bound to spread to other spaces and new applications.
can this possibly be far away?
well, it happened.
i got attacked by the undead today. (again!)
my neck hurts pretty badly and i'm worried about whether i'll transform into some sort of dark minion.
if i had not had the triple garlic deep dish, i'm sure the vampire would have been worse.
thank god for little caesars!
Exactly, how many times we seen tweets from people saying: "I've never been so sick in my life. I thought I was going to die. Thank God I was vaxed - this would have been so much worse".
Do these people actually read what they write?
Pizza is safe and effective.
All this deceptive marketing started with French cuisine. "Jaques, what do you think we should with all this leftover goose innards?"
"Good, question, Francois. Let's whip it into a paste. Call it foie gras and charge people 1000 times what its worth."
The pizza will shorten your life, unless you thoughtfully wipe each slice with sanitizing wipes.
They sold MILLIONS of test to people that were never sick!
Your agent better get on the horn to Little Caesars pronto as you've got a million-dollar idea right there.
My double jabbed (and boostered) friend over in England was laid low with the virus at Christmas time. She would certainly have died without all the jabs, or so she tells me.
I’m unvaccinated and, in spite of sharing a bed with my infected, symptomatic (double jabbed) husband and getting him to breathe on me, I’m still Covid-free*.
How can I spin this using the same marketing strategies and flawed logic as our lying governments and all their willing dupes who walk amongst us?
This perhaps: I didn’t catch Covid from my husband, and it wasn’t for lack of trying. If I’d had the vaccine, it would certainly have been so much worse. I mean, OMG, I might have - gasp! - caught Covid.
I don’t know. Is that how you play this game?
* The only reason I’m trying to catch Covid is because a positive PCR test here in Australia will buy a filthy unvaccinated citizen a 4-month ‘green tick’ exemption. Without a green tick or temporary green tick exemption, I’m not allowed to visit my mother in hospital (she has cancer).
The Spanish Influenza didn’t need a global marketing campaign to convince the people burying their neighbors that it was a killer. The blitz, the intensive media pressure, the bureaucracy-fed, fad-driving dynamics around this COVID thing is like nothing ever seen before.
Amazingly successful. Desperately evil.
Well, I'll say this: for all you more science-literate folks who talk about things like "strong signals" etc. etc. etc.--medical ads are extremely useful to keep eyes and whiskers on. I myself--only, like Ernestine, a HS graduate--have noted over the decades how the prescribed uses of biologics like Humera and its sisters have greatly broadened. Weren't they originally for rheumatoid arthritis and now for a whole bad salad-bowlful of maladies? Why is it so normal for the middle-aged to be ravaged by auto-immune diseases? I swear, I used to be scornful of those who were adamantly opposed to the "regular childhood immunizations," but I'm sure starting to wonder. I'm in the first generation who received polio vax, and had the smallpox vax as an infant, and as an adult, in prep for traveling, got typhoid and hepB vax, and rubella vax after giving birth, and I only have 2 auto-immune conditions but one can be blamed on having my tonsils out at eight...
If I pay for a marketing degree from Prestigious University, will I look like that gal in the photo...?
Sunscreen. Greatest marketing for a downright harmful product ever. Outside of Aspartame. And margarine. Fat is bad. OK yeah, there are lots of those things. And you know the font of most of those big dumbass ideas? Government. If they didn't come up with it, the OK'd it and then declared it righteous.
Weird how every drug commercial has 15 seconds of possible adverse effects, but the vaccine commercials are silent on the issue.
I hadn't watched actual t.v. in decades (many VHS tapes repeatedly, so still an escapist) when I first saw Fox News at my sister's. I thought it was satire. I hadn't seen it during the Trump era until, again at a relative's, I started seeing pharma ads for the first time. I don't know for how many decades people have been watching the healthy looking life fulfilling actors engaged in sports or walking on the beach with that chryonish text being read quietly, the lists of atrocious outcomes ending with "and even death" I think that must've brainwashed people subliminally to expect that all glorious pills will work except when they don't ("and even death")over decades. When you haven't been exposed to this and innured to it, it is really shocking. I remember one drug that was supposed to be an appetite suppressant, for which the side effects included bleeding from the palms. The Big Pharma stigmata. This virulent rot has been pulsed into people's brains for a long time. This latest schist builds over that. Frog boiling slowly. And even death.
I heard steaks through the heart did a better job. And tastier.
I'm not lactose intolerant. Where did you find your electric cheese straightener, my hand powered one is so tiring!
There is a pretty good description of the sales/control techniques in Shoshana Zuboff, The Age of Surveillance Capitalism, 2019. Many of the same players are involved with the WEF and plandemic.
Honestly you are killing me😂😂😂😂😂
Saw a commercial for Walgreens this week with a montage of everyone out and about having fun, ranging from bars to clubs to school etc. The message was to be vaccinated so you can have fun. Oh, and the only masks in the commercial? The kids at the school.
I wish China would market short Hair cuts for teenage boys. I’m so tired of my 14 year old’s puffy front do which he is never happy with….I sound like my parents.
Vaccine, booster, booster, booster is the new wash, rinse, repeat.
The Chief Marketing Officer of Pfizer should have been the 2021 person of the year.
Vitamin P. You gotta love it!
not related but thought i'd share since its so funny
Talk about deceptive propaganda! Today, my 17 y.o. woke up with sore throat and cold symptoms. I kindly offered to have him tested and treated with IVM (which I bought last summer online via Singapore/France). He replied: "NO, I will not have horse medicine!". I almost flipped out. Lost it for a few minutes. Then, made him watch the 11-min video about Ivermectin posted on the FLCCC website. Thank God for the work of Dr. Kory et al. I've been consumed about all things covid since the whole plandemic started. This kiddo is lucky to have me as his momma. He got an earful from me, justifiably so. ;-) I ended the lecture reminding him that the CDC ads telling people to not take horse medicine is what we call propaganda, NOT truth. He finally agreed. Sigh. The state of vigilance is never-ending with our teens and young adults.
This is about the evil vax ads.
"They're young, they're hip, they're fashionably dressed, and they do like science and sh*t!"
Dude, Little Caesars? I've lost some respect for you....
The sales pitch was criminally good.
In honor of the late great Bill Hicks, I shall plant some seeds (NSFW):
The marketing was truly astonishing on Covid. We witnessed what gets euphemistically called "a public-private partnership."
And the result was, as far as I can tell, THE single most successful corporate product launch of all time measured by year one revenue. Not just a good marketing-driven launch given how laughably bad and untested the products were...but THE single highest-grossing product launch of all time.
The highest-grossing pharmaceutical product in 2019 brought in $19 billion in revenue. Pfizer and Moderna's Covid vaccines BOTH set the all-time record for most annual revenue...in their first year! They BOTH grossed more than $30 billion! Number one and two product launches of all time! And in Moderna's case, it was the ONLY product they had ever launched.
This is more year-one revenue than I've seen for ANY other corporate product launch in world history. More than the Television. More than the Toyota Camry. More than FedEx. More than the S&P 500 index fund. More than the iPhone.
Amazingly, most Americans have no idea about this business success. The conventional wisdom is that vaccines don't make much money and that the Covid vaccines were essentially a non-profit triumph of science and altruism.
Nope! Vaccines are big business, and the Covid vaccines were the biggest business ever.
Coming soon: vaccine to stop the spread of Russian armed forces, or if they invade it’s ‘less serious’.
And the marketing, worth billions of (insert currency) was at no cost to producers/retailers. Advertising and promotion were produced and broadcast by Governments at National and local level and paid for by taxpayers, celebrity endorsements, including by royalty, were free, public relations handled no-charge by the main stream media. And finally, people reluctant to buy the snake-oil were bullied, coerced, tricked, bribed into buying it by Governments, institutions, businesses, the media and law enforcement agencies.
I hear they are marketing a 3rd world war very well now as well. Who would have thought they could get hundreds of thousands of people worldwide to go on the streets and demand an escalation that could lead to nuclear war. Amazing marketing.
Does the garlic keep the Covidians away? I might have to change my pizza!
I have some questions for all you good people. I call on your honest self-examination.
1. Is the world Covid situation really getting better?
2. Have any government emergency powers gone away?
3. Is suspending mandates the same as ending emergency powers?
4. Do you suspect your government might already be a branch of the NWO?
5. If so, is political theater used to keep the populace quiet?
6. Is a vote coming up in your country? Will you be allowed to win?
7. What word magic makes you think “protesting for freedom” is the same as “fighting for freedom”?
8. T. Jefferson: “The tree of liberty must be refreshed from time to time with the blood of patriots and tyrants." Do you believe it, or just pay it lip service?
9. What proof is there that pure, pristine, passive protesting has actually changed government policy?
10. Is pure passivity proof you're more moral than your enemy?
11. Do you think erudite factual articles will ever change the mind of your enemy?
12. Does it occur to you you're in a real war?
13. Do you know that before an army can fight, it must purge its ranks of traitorous self-righteous karens who scold about moral equivalence?
14. Do you know that in war you must have no illusions about your enemy, make a strategic plan, and use measured, incremental force?
15. When will you put aside childish idealistic fantasies, and deal with adult reality? Can you ever admit you're living on hopium?
16. Why do I bother with these questions, when everyone is in mass formation, the evil people with theirs, the good people with theirs?
Whoops, too many questions, I've already lost the typically short attention span of my audience. Sorry, my bad. Just carry on as usual.
Funny, it can actually be said for all sides. There are always opportunity when people are scared.
How did you know I was preparing pizza today? You must be clearvoyant LOL
You bring much needed joy ~ thank you.
I don't watch TV so I wouldn't know about these ads you refer to.
As Benny Hill said “he is such a good salesman he can sell a double bed to the Pope”
Where can I get me one of them electric cheese straighteners?
I am so glad I don't watch ads or listen to terrestrial radio. I even got rid of ad based software because I got so sick of seeing the lady flexing her arm with the "take your best shot" slogan with a giant hypodermic and the one ad with a picture of someone half dead in a hospital bed with a respirator shoved down their throat saying something like "don't end up like this, get vaccinated!". Disgusting. Little Caesars sux. Lol. But I do admit that when I was in college, 2 pizzas for five dollars fit the bill nicely.
