If he's right, why did SOME of the people drink the beer? If he's right, why does anyone vote for the smeared candidates? It's not that advertising doesn't work, it just doesn't work on everyone. Alka Seltzer won awards for some of their ad campaigns... not one of which increased sales. Lee, some of us ARE smart enough. You need a better epiphany.

Latest comment: The studies he mentions can be found in "Predictably Irrational", by Dan Ariel, but his basic premise is wrong. It is not that we are stupid, it is that our decision making process is flawed and so deeply ingrained that even if know about it we can be misled anyway. Advertising is trying to exploit that flaws in our decision making process.
