Rite...as we all know that are many advertisement slogans out there..something like the phrase that Samsung has implemented in its advertisements nowadays(With Samsung,its not that hard to imagine)...while some makes sense...others...sad to say..are rubbish...
"Impossible is nothing"(Adidas)...im sure you guys are familiar with this catch phrase...actually it doesnt makes any sense..if nothing is impossible...why should there be such a word?...lets put it in a scenario..i wanna jump down from my house..but i wanna live still..im staying at the fifth level..im sure this is impossible rite(unless you put some netting or something or if you are superman's long lost brother..)...so why such a slogan???or do they mean if i wear anything from adidas impossible would be nothing?...ok..what if on that fateful they i equip myself with a pair of adidas sports shoe...will i survive the fall??i doubt so..
There are some things money can't buy. For everything else, there's MasterCard."(Mastercard)...strong statement they have here..in fact its partly true..you cay buy particular anything in a shopping mall with just a flash of the card(you can do without it though)...but..it is not everything that i can buy that mastercard is eligible for use...for example...i wanna buy three durians from that ah-peh below at the market..but i ran out of cash...suddenly i remembered this particular Mastercard slogan...so off i went trotting to the market looking like a fool..
Mike- Ah peh ah!..gimme three durian..nice nice one ah!
Ah peh-can CAN !
the Ah peh then took a red plastic bag and filled it with those prickly things..then came the payment....
Mike- Ah peh ah!..I dont have cash ler...You accept Mastercard?Can la ah peh..Chin chai lah..you my fren ba..
Ah peh- Ninabei...you make joke ah?
Mike-no la ah peh..im not laughing..
Ah peh- YOU SIOW AH!!NABEI DONT PLAY PLAY AH..I CALL MY GANG BEAT YOU UP!!
so there i was getting cursed at for being a smartass to believe what they say in those adverts..worse..i might be hit by the durians..kids..dont try this at home..
anyway..my point here is to emphasize the fact that the mastercard advert slogan is a total bluff..not everything that can be bought you can buy with a mastercard..like durians..you cant..
"Drink redbull,it gives you wings!"(Redbull)...ok this is a total crap..pls..stop this advertisement..coz in my opinion small innocent children might get influenced by this advert...
for an example..
young joe,age 5..saw this advertisement in the television...he got excited with the fact that redbull could actually give him a pair of wings..so there he went begging his mom to buy him just a can of redbull..his mom didnt noe his reason though..so she,being a good mom,buy her son a can of redbull...joe brought it home and thus consume it in one large gulp...he suddenly felt a rush of adrenaline inside him..within an instant..joe,age 5,jump out of his windows and began flapping his...hands...he died in an instant...Joe,age 5,died due to a significant media influence...may he rest in peace..
sobs...anyway...that advert is total crap..im sure you dont want small children to be influence by such crap..so why such crap should be shown on public television..it should be banned as it can endanger dear lives...
lastly...(sorry i dont have much time to list all..but if you are interested in such slogans..do visit this link..http://en.wikiquote.org/wiki/Advertising_slogans#Electronics
"Nobody does chicken like KFC"(KFC)...this is another crap...how can actually a man...in this case a fast food company to actually make chickens?chickens are living things and as we all noe living things are a creation of God(i dunno bout your believes..but i do)...so how can they actually make chicken..some might blame that the phrase is actually correct,meaning-wise...but im sure a 5 yr old boy like our late Joe cant see the real meaning and just might mistaken it differently...
so no matter how much i love KFC i am totally against this slogan coz it might make little kids see that KFC actually makes chickens...
Kid- Mom!Is it true KFC actually makes chickens??
Mom- thats balderdash!!
Kid- but Mom!!it said so on tv..they say nobody makes chickens better than KFC...that means..KFC actually makes chickens...that so cool Mom!!can we make our own chicken..i wonder what ingredients we need...maybe we need a feather...or an egg..or an.....
Mom-SHUTUPPPPPP!!!you blabering nonsense...no more tv for you!!!...
*kid starts crying..
" ..it's all about you now.. "
