Overkill

01 July 2014, 14:34
Do you think there is something like overkill in advertising?There is a company, will not mention the name, that has a number of commercials running on a number of radio stations and most of the time, no... all the time, it is the same ad that gets repeated again, and again, and again. If I was with this banking institute I would close my account and move it somewhere els. It just gets to much. We have a radio in the office and through a unanimous vote, we have decided to turn the radio off because of this repetitive ad. It does not matter changing the station because as soon as you do... WHAM, there it is again. I am sure there is a point where people turn off their radios because of this, which indirectly sabotages other ads that would have been listening too. So what do think? Are you experiencing the same?
