Given a few million in extra pocket change, it might be interesting to offer to buy a 30 second spot(s) during a superbowl and show counter-ads. A network would never allow counter-ads to be shown because they are in the business of selling dreams, but if it were shown it might make people stop and think that to some degree slick ads just like political propaganda can fool people into wanting dumb things with unintended consequences.

B.T.W. here is an idea for any corporate lawyers, sue about about the fair use of your companys brand trademark. Like they say in the Mastercard commercials, the publicity would be "priceless."

ACCORDING TO ADVERTISERS drinking beer will get you laid, well there might be some truth in that statement, but chances are the chick will be fat and ugly
Advertising like political propaganda is the art of getting people to believe in a dream world and advertisers know what buttons to push,


Bin Laden brain washed followers into believing that the United States is the enemy of Islam
kind of like how the Taliban brain washed their followers into believing that the United States is the enemy of Islam,


Nazi propaganda brain washed a country
or how Nazi propaganda helped put Hitler in power.


Advertisers fool consumers into thinking consuming beer is cool, but never show what happens when things go wrong
So to some degree consumers of alcohol, followers of the Taliban and Nazi party, all have something in common and that is they all were fooled into buying a self destructive reality.
