Does any one remember the "WHERE DO YOU GET IT" ads that were played here in Adelaide years back, they were one of the worst ads ever made for loudness.
I think they did very well.
On a similar note, remember about 10 years back they had the night time gambling on TV. First it was Channel 9, then the other jumped in. Nothing else on TV. You would think either 7 and 10 would have simply run a popular movie as many a late night watcher was desperate for something else.
Remember they would say over and over, "could it be this", "open your mind", "this is a...". "If you know call, if you think you know call, you could win $50" or what ever. Then the responsible gambling comment. The music would go up in pitch, change lighting and then down, they would zoom in, zoom out. 30-60min, the girl would drag this out with the "what is it" and answer maybe 5 calls at best in an hour. I'm sure those presenters were dragged out of Uni and worked for handshake and macca's. Channel 9 had the hottest ones, Channel 7 had that group of people looked like they were in a party.
