'The Break Up' Illustrates Ridiculousness of Advertiser/Consumer Relationship
Microsoft Trade Marketing Manager Geert Desager has launched a site Bring Back the Love which features a video, The Break Up, that hilariously illustrates the ridiculous relationship between advertisers and consumers by making each human and filming them while on a date. Working with Microsoft Agency Openhere, the long-form commercial takes a hard look at what we all like to call the "relationship" between advertiser and consumer. Clearly, at this point, it is far from a relationship which is why this video is entitled The Break Up.
Desager hopes the video and the blog will foster discussion about this ridiculous notion of relationship and how it can be better defined or reworked so that an actual relationship can occur with The Break Up. While never a good thing to com[are to a classic, this thing's right up their with the famed Truth in Advertising.
