Badvertising 101  
1. Sell chocolates in a puddle of motor oil.  With a non-food color palette.

2. Completely ignore physics, space and reality.


Where are they?  Why aren't they on Earth?

3. Hire models with one thousand expressions.


"two eyes...a thousand expressions"  - it looks like a Botox ad.

4. Muzak.  Finally an ad that captures the excitement of Muzak!


And a mall.  In Tacoma.  WOWZA!

1. Black-and-white food always looks like shit, especially in a color ad.

OH my mother and I used to eat lunch at that Bon Marche. I always had chicken salad.

I'm ALWAYS ready for television. (Sadly.) And I think nothing has ever captured the tedium and abrasiveness of Muzak better than that ad.

Oh yeah - it's big business since 1934, and despite bankruptcy is still a strong music presence - they run many of the music-by-genre channels on cable/dish tv.
