Oh, you blogger jinxed me on one of the pictures. But you have a different theme and it's a good one. I don't see it as marketing psychology as much as brain washing.

Happy MM!

Karl said...

Buzz Kill: Sorry about the jinx. Brain washing is what it is.

ANNA-LYS said...

Like Your choice on the subject!!!

Happy MM!

Very interesting array and take. All I remember from Marketing Class was that I was "The Chiseler" customer profile.

Happy Mute Monday!

it starts very young, you're right.

can you imagine thinking being a McDonald's hamburger for Halloween was the best thing to be?????

Happy MM.

McDonald's had me at a young age. Junk food was basically forbidden in my house except for our annual ski trip up to Purgatory (now Durango Resort or something similarly boring). Anyway, each year on our way back, my mother would capitulate and stop at McDonald's for lunch. The year I was finally old enough for a Big Mac was a BIG DEAL por Moi. I still love those disgusting things to this day. Brain washing works.

Karl said...

Anna-lys: Welcome and thank you.

Troll: The main thing I got from marketing class was to be very wary of anyone selling anything.

Boxer: Yes, it does start very young. Look at Disney they used to make fine movies that entertained young children, now they make feature length commercials that act as a medium to sell action figure's.

No, I really can't imagine wanting to look like the hamburger for Halloween.

Moi: It doesn't seem to me that they hooked you hard enough to destroy your health, like most of the folks they brainwash. I wonder how many of the average McDonald's customers could run a 1/2 marathon.

this weeks theme has just really bummed me out, and makes me reopen my own box of issues. :x

Happy MM.

Pam said...

I love that brain map ---- that might be the map for kids but it is close enough to my own to be a little scary! Happy MM and thanks for stopping by. You might just be right on those ink blots

MinorityReport said...

I like your take on the theme. Very thought provoking. Happy belated.

Karl said...

Kym: I'm sorry to read that. This is all supposed to be fun you, shouldn't let it get to you.

Pam: Glad you like it. Is there are right or wrong answer for an ink blot?

Minority Report: Thank you.

rage said...

I think you really captured how things change and how the mind processes it all.

Great job Karl!

Karl said...

Rage: You're probably giving me more credit than I'm due. But what the heck, I will happily take an ataboy anytime. Thank you
