t’s probably been said a million time before, but don’t you think the adverts for “Bing” are a bit..um..self defeating?
When a woman asks about “Euston Station” she given glassy eyed responses, none of which have anything to do with Euston, but rather similar sounding stuff. Sorry, but if stick “Euston Station” in a search engine, I don’t want information about everything that sounds a bit similar but nothing on the subject at hand. Is this how Bing works? Isn’t that kind of everything a search engine shouldn’t be? What bright spark thought up that? Was it the same twat who, in the 80′s destroyed the carlsberg ads by conclusively proving they weren’t the greatest lager in the world? The egotistical, yet self depracating “probably the best lager in the world” slogan was much loved and renowned in the 70′s; in the 80′s some bright spark though that sending Hot Air Balloons with ‘Carlsberg’ written on the said the same thing. What they actually said was that the70′s slogan was a load of hot air. They followed this with a ‘carlsberg’ being printed on a ‘red herring’ and a number of other images that suggested that the slogan was a lie.
Advertising Execs. HUH! What are they good for?
Absolutely nothing! OW!
