    And many, many other stupid ways of advertising stuff which,
    frankly, you either don't need or you do but the brand is merely
    a way to justify an overpriced thing.

    Today I went to pick up some stuff for the fleabag, and oh boy,
    was I bombarded at the shop with banners, videos, slogans,
    pamphlets and a ton of other stuff trying to convince me, using
    a super sexy model with a cute little poodle, mind you, to cough
    up over €20 more than usual for something which is just... dog
    food.

    It doesn't matter how many bikini chicks and hot lassies you put around
    a product. It is just... a product. A thing. Either it is good or not, but the
    way they present it has nothing to do with it. And it just baffles me that
    everything the marketeers try to push down our throats has to be, directly
    or indirectly, lubed it through sexy models, suggestive voices, and all
    sorts of innuendos.

    My dog didn't like it, by the way.

    Yeah, me too, but my dog didn't like the food. I took a pic of the model with my phone though. Good times.

    Thank you Seitse for protesting the oversexualization of advertisments.

    But I think it will continue as Long as sex sells.

    Reminds me of a dog food ad when I was a kid, it ends with 'Dr Ross dogfood is dog gone good, WOOF.

    Actually found it online:

    “Give him Dr. Ross Dog Food, do him a favor.
    “It’s got more meat and it’s got more flavor.
    “Dr. Ross Dog Food is dog-gone good!
    “WOOF!”

    It worked on me.
    I got a cupboard full of the stuff and don't even own a dog !
