I think you're giving people way too much credit.Advertising as we know it is out dated and stale. We live in an age of educated consumers (mostly). Who, other than children who see an ad for a new toy or game, goes out and makes a purchase because they saw a commercial or an ad on a web page? Certainly not me. Consumers seek the products not the other way around. It is the advertisers job to let people know their product is out there in the least intrusive & least annoying way possible.
