The Wise Men - Marketing Cynicism

By colin
My take on Christmas commercialism. The three pointed star holds such sway amongst consumers, that I felt the strap line could be used in a very cynical fashion,suggesting that if you didn't buy MB then you would be viewed as foolish.
I'm not suggesting for one minute that Mercedes-Benz would ever promote their brand in such a cynical way, but the minds of unscrupulous brand marketers just might!
Happy Christmas and enjoy spending !

Go easy on the marketeers, we have to make a living somehow, and some of us are OK!

Thanks for the comments Nick & Jon.

Jon, notice I did say, 'unscrupulous'. Don't worry, not a dig at the good and dedicated guys,as I work in Sales and Marketing myself, for Mercedes-Benz Finance in actual fact, hence my caveat about MB per se. More a reflection of the commercialism that surrounds Christmas.
Not meaning to offend, unless you are one of the unscrupulous sorts in which case, shame on you !(lol)

Exploiting? Commercializing? I've never heard of such things. Especially at Christmas.....



Have a great one Colin!
