* Grab the book nearest you. Right now.
* Turn to page 56. * Find the fifth sentence.
* Post that sentence along with these instructions on your blog or (if you do not have your own blog) in the comments section of this blog.
* Post a link along with your post back to this blog.
* Don't dig for your favorite book, the coolest, the most intellectual. Use the CLOSEST.

Somehow I am lugging around TWO hardcovers this week! I guess that will cut down on the reading while driving during the commute - way to hard to hold a hardcover open with one hand. *wink* BUT the closest book is in my desk drawer here at my graphic design job. Here is an excerpt from Media Sexploitation by Wilson Bryan Key - pg 56

Through subliminal appeals and reinforcements of these fears, some consumers can be induced into buying almost anything.

I'm not sure where I picked this book up. Either I stole it from my father's personal collection OR I picked it up at the college library book sale. A real eye opener to anyone not educated in the advertising field. Do you realize just what manipulative jack*sses us graphic designers are? *evil grin*


I'm very aware! That's why I don't watch tv anymore. OOPS, sorry I'm putting you out of a job but that's probably why they've started putting commercials in my movie theaters!

Tonya - TV get's me & the news is the WORSE for manipulating the facts! At least you know an advertisement is trying to sell you something!


Even though I know they're doing it, I usually fall for it anyway!

Thanks so much for delving into my head. It's scary in here sometimes, so it is nice to have company! Don't step on the zephyr...
