Holiday Marketing and Bored Employees

Every year, a new crop of holiday marketing comes around. You know the kind… “insert your face here” dancing elves are a personal favorite of mine. The message? Who cares right? Do we realize we’re being advertised at? Food for though: Is the success of holiday marketing in direct correlation to the boredom of  coworkers and employees?

Here are a new one to keep you entertained. As an experiment, see if you actually care about the advertisement.

  1. Good thoughts. I’d like to quote your “Is the success of holiday marketing in direct correlation to the boredom of coworkers and employees?” on my blog Yes, people do shop to relieve boredom and I suppose they browse the internet and see more ads too. It’s stimulation and more engaging than the boring thing they are supposed to be doing.
