A well intentioned rant about the current state of Advertising, with particular emphasis on Big Dumb Agencies (BDA's) Because, no matter how bad you think it is, it's actually a great deal worse!
"Advertising is the rattling of a stick inside a swill pail." George Orwell.
Inside every uber expensive iNozzle tchotcke are lots of small tchotcke's made by suppliers whose businesses are tied to Apple. As Imagination Technologies Group Plc has now learned, it’s lucrative to be a favorite Apple supplier -- until they decide to fuck you. Apple just notified Imagination that it will no longer be using the British company’s graphics technology within the next two years. The news Monday sent Imagination’s shares down as much as 72 percent. Apple is Imagination’s largest customer, providing just over half its revenue. Apple has always been somewhat "Trumpian" in its treatment of suppliers, with numerous law suits constantly in play. What goes around comes back around and fucks you in the arse!
You will be pleased to hear that the war in Iraq will be over by the end of the week. Der Trumpfs Son-In-Law, Jared Kushner, is spending a day in Baghdad to sort all that shit out. Next week, he will spend a day in Israel to end the conflict between Israel and Palestine. Before the end of the month he will have taken care of China and North Korea. Isn't everything great?
Wal-Mart was always notorious for nickel and diming supplies... Kinda like Der Trumpf. Now, 'cos Bezos (Currently 2nd richest man in the fucking universe) wants to kick the Arkansas giant into touch, he is applying pressure on package goods manufacturers, to sell to him even cheaper. Boy, this is going to be great... Will "The People of Wal-Mart" become "The people of Amazon?" As Zippy the Pinhead would say... Nahhh, they wouldn't fit down the "Tubes."
