Things Real People Don’t Say About Advertising

Advertising’s a weird business. It’s a fascinating and quite creative business, but some parts of it are just strange. For instance think about all the money, hours and thought that went in to the recent logos for the Gap clothing stores and Big Ten athletic conference, both of which were met with an overwhelming reaction of “Who thought that was a good idea?”

Well, there’s a shiny new Tumblr blog called “Things Real People Don’t Say About Advertising” which satirizes some of the dumber ways advertisers over think how to market a product. The blog’s user submitted content looks at everything from product placement (at right) to company websites with their own soundtrack.

Check out the whole blog here.
