    the plan

    .

    first we scare the fuck out of you
    then we reassure you
    then you buy the shit

    .

    firstly, we are going to convince you that all your peers are one rung above you on the shiny ladder of social status.

    [what we do not tell you is that we are convincing all your peers that they are in the same position with regard to you]

    then we reassure you that buying our product will allow you to ascend that one vital rung and gain parity with your peers.

    then you buy the shit.

    then we begin the process all over again.

    .

    secondly, we are going to convince you that you are a personal failure. the entire world looks upon you with scorn and observes a second class citizen.

    then we are going to reassure you that taking out the loan will allow you to buy those important products that will prove to the entire world that you are actually a success.

    then you buy the shit.

    then we begin the process all over again.

    .

    thirdly, we are going to convince you that you live in abject filth, that your house is crawling with dangerous bacteria and is filled with nauseating odours. we will convince you that you are bad parents, and that you owe it to your children to keep your house as clean as we say it needs to be.

    then we reassure you that our products will transform your house into a completely bacteria and odour free fully sterile environment.

    then you buy the shit.

    then we begin the process all over again.

    .

    then we begin these processes [and many more] all over again....

    and again

    and again

    and again

    and again

    and again

    and again

    and again

    and again

    and again

    and again

      IT always makes me laugh how many companies launch a new product and simultaneously degrading it's predecessor coming from exactly same company.
      "This washing up liquid is the best, better than before !!"(i.e. you stupid fucks you bought the other one and it was shit and now we invented better!) and again and again and again ...

      If people want to think of me as scum, fine whatever.

      Very fine graphic ... and argument ... as ever Paul

      Never has the phrase
      Ad Nauseum
      been more apropos

      Although one night
      I did get locked in
      the Museum of Digestion
      otherwise known as
      the Nauseum Museum
