“Catvertising” Swipes at the Internet | culture | Torontoist | Psychology of Consumer Behaviour | Scoop.it
Torontoist is about Toronto and everything that happens in it...

"The savviest theorists of our modern media age have suggested that the internet is, in fact, made of cats. Toronto-based advertising agency John St. has taken this idea one step further: “Catvertising,” the firm’s YouTube parody of overeager marketing strategists, hit the tubes on November 10 and has already received attention from international media outlets, including Time and New York Magazine, for its comically spot-on assessment of digital-age attention seeking."

But that doesn't mean he'll kill Don, he says.

 

Matt Weiner is still taking an Abbey Road approach to the finale of Mad Men, but he has a more specific goal now, too. "I just want it to be entertaining and I want people to remember it fondly and not think it ended in a fart," he told Jeff Garlin at a Q&A in L.A. on Friday.

Internet of Yesterday & Today: 1996 vs. 2011 [INFOGRAPHIC]

Internet of Yesterday & Today: 1996 vs. 2011 [INFOGRAPHIC] | Psychology of Consumer Behaviour | Scoop.it

This article by Charlie White

 

for Mashable, brings an informative look back at the growth of and changes in the Internet by way of an Infographic.

 

Some people may look at past growth as an indicator to the future and others will simply go on a trip down Memory Lane, but I think many will find this interesting.

 

A quote from Bill Clinton, included in the Infographic sums up much of the change in the last 15 years:

 

"When I took office, only high energy physicists had ever heard of what is called the World Wide Web.  Now even my cat has a page"

 

See the full infographic: [http://mashable.com/2011/09/09/internet-yesterday-today/]

Beer advertising. It rarely gets better. Or ever so frightening. - Anthill Magazine

Beer advertising. It rarely gets better. Or ever so frightening. - Anthill Magazine | Psychology of Consumer Behaviour | Scoop.it
There's something about beer commercials that always seems to elevate this genre of advertising just that little bit above regular commercials. Perhaps it's the vast budgets. Perhaps it's the elasticity of the subject matter.

 

"The producers of this beer commercial borrowed a small 150 seat cinema playing a popular film, and filled 148 of its seats with rough-looking, tattooed bikers, leaving only two seats free in the middle of the theater. They, then, allowed theater management to sell tickets for the last pair of tickets to several young couples."
