Did you notice the invasion of horrible diet 1996 style advertising campaigns on most leading tech blogs?
Recession has no effect on this type of advertising. We will always take weight in December and try to get rid of it in January, that is recession proof! In any case this “Flat Stomach” brand must have the wrong message to run such an idiotic advertising message. Fortunately some A-lister friends just do not give a shit.
“1 Flat Stomach Rule: Obey”
“Gain flat stomach fast!”
“fat-off 2009: 10 tools for losing weight or staying in shape”
…because we are not idiots like the coach potatoes watching home shopping TV ads. Or maybe we all are and the advertisers know it. If they put their money on these blogs, they must have good results.
