Walking Billboard Bitter Friday Giftures

This morning when I was getting ready, I noticed something. I put on a Nike shirt, a Nike sweatshirt, some Nike shoes and some Gap jeans. I’ve liked Nike products ever since I was young, and the jeans, well I just like how they fit. I’m not sure that I like Nike for any particular reason, other than maybe when I was young they were the kind of hip brand to wear. I don’t really think they are made any better than any other clothes or shoes, but somehow I’ve been loyal to them since I was young. And their ads are top notch, which I’ve always been a fan of.

The crazy thing about me wearing all these clothes with the brand names, is that I’m actually an active advertiser for them now. If someone likes my clothes and they ask what brand they are, then I tell them Nike and those people might just go buy something Nike because of it. Or someone could just look at my clothes and see the little swoosh and just be reminded over and over again of Nike and subliminally want to buy more. Whether we like it or not, we are advertisements for companies even when don’t think we are.

You might not wear brand names, but you use them every day and you are helping them. Doesn’t that make you bitter? Even now, you are reading this blog and somehow bitterness has entered your mind. While making me no money, I am hypnotizing you into thinking about bitterness on a weekly basis. And somewhere down the line, I WILL find a way to hypnotize you into buying my bitter products. Embrace the bitterness. And more importantly embrace these Bitter Friday Giftures…

  1. I grew up in a sorted of dated way, one could say, so to me ‘Nike’ is an anti-missile missile (or missile interceptor…)

    BUT.. being bitter can drive one to drink. Many drinks use… bitters.
    “Ben’s Bitters” seems like it might be a “marketing opportunity.”
    Of course, that could be work, and you’d be bitter about that…
