The very best well established brands and products rarely need to advertise, yes. Because of course, they donít need brand building and brand awareness advertising. But if theyíre new then youíll find them advertising to their target markets of higher spenders and socioeconomic groups using targeted advertising strategies and media.

It would be interesting to hear of any brands that have never advertised and arenít local or small one shop retailers. A lot of advertising is because the competition advertise. Or trying to gain market share the when the one with the bigger market share will just advertise more in response, unless the advertising campaign is particularly clever. Intelligently thought out ones or just the Pepsi challenge.

Can't remember when I last saw a Rolls Royce commercial.

 


Dad and I watched games standing on the muddy slope of the Holmesdale Road end. He cheered and I rattled.

Why would they need to advertise on the TV as they are a long established brand and everyone knows what they sell but most mass market brands advertise to bring awareness to their products

Everyone knows that Vorsprung durch Technik is associated with Audi and The Ultimate Driving Machine is BMW

Yes, that's the point Midlands, but it's the style of advertising these days that makes you wonder what they're thinking. Give me the old Martini ads any day.

Yes, new products that may be even better than the existing order certainly still need adverting I can think of DVD's taking over from vinyl for example. (though I agree with those who are fond of vinyl)

Most products will still need to advertise but we can all think of a few iconic brands that have already gained 'mind share' via the culture.

Yes, and the ladies'underwear adverts that used to slowly pass one by on the underground escalators. Not that I was persuaded to buy any.

Two brands that annoy me intensely, one because it has a virtual monopoly, the other because they too have a virtual monopoly but I just don't understand why people don't try something different.

No.1 is Colgate
No.2 is Coca Cola

There aren't any funny adverts anymore, companies are so scared of offending anyone. They so political correct nowadays, with just about every advert ensuring that they all races included.

I showed my wife the Harp advert from 80's about Lionel Blair's haircut. She is from Ireland and had never seen it.

Most adverts just annoy the hell out of me now, and it has the opposite effect. I would deliberately not buy a product because of their advert.

example : That god awful woman on the Oral B advert telling me "I didn't even know that Oral B made a toothpaste".

You've missed the point there CC, that as is another sop to the PC brigade.

The woman is blind. Obviously.

The lack of variety in today's advertising is seriously shocking.

I barely watch TV, but when Palace are on Sky:

- Car advert
- Insurance advert. For car.
- Bank advert: cheeky chappies (f*** off) or soothing downtempo renditions with a black horse (also f*** off)
- Just Eat
- Way Winnstown luvvin a bit ov bettin'

Rinse and repeat. I seem to see nothing but the above. Adverts were so much better 20 or so years ago. Funny, intelligent, a bit of effort going into it. Go and look at some 70s or 80s youtube advert compilations (sad, I know).

It's just so vacuous now... a bit like society, I guess.
