Demolishun1908974dI see this kind of stuff with Roblox with kids. I just tell them, we don't spend money on this crap. Accept it.
magicMirror971174dDon't hate what works.
Also - great solution for the mac problem!
I remember that at my 2nd job I stumbled on some old web marketing projects they made...
One for the sugar industry.
I studied the ads and marketing bit more because of curiosity.
It's amazing how people are able to mend reality into something completely different that has nothing to do at all with reality.
Like "Taste our product - now healthier and tastier" (reworded and rephrased for the obvious reason of masquerading the company).
Well. Yeah. It's 5 % sugar less, but still > 40 % so "healthier" has to be taken literal you mofos.
It's really an art to turn an obvious lie into some form of "truthy" enough to be believable and sellable.
If you want to get a more relevant and global example...
Tobacco lobbyism, Gun lobbyism, far right press like Epoch times, ...
If it sells, it will be marketed - no matter what, no matter how.
Moral and ethics is completely irrelevant and that trend is more and more visible in IT, too. Sadly.
