Advertisements are supposed to convince you that you want something or that you want to participate in something. Here at Grove City College, people don’t believe in that. They use a technique that only works when what your advertising is really, really sweet. The following are two advertisements that I pulled down from the walls of campus today.
These advertisements are two of a plethora of others that dot the hallways, stairwells, and that perfect eye level spot above the urinals. These adverts don’t make me interested, they bore me. I’m not intrigued by that which I don’t know. I just dismiss them as something I do not need. I do not have 50 minutes to invest in HAL 112 any night this week. If I enter spoon and duct tape into Facebook, nothing comes up.
Perhaps these groups that are organizing something should try a more effective way to get the news out, like declaring the Pope should be killed. Unfortunately for these groups, Anjem Choudary has already beaten them to this form of attention procurement. Today, Anjem Choudary said that the Pope should face execution and anyone who insulted Islam should be subjected to capital punishment. Islam really is a religion of peace, isn’t it?
