They all do it.  No denying it.  Liars. The whole world’s at it–lying we mean.  And it’s Christmas and it’s normal.

Don’t get us wrong–we love it too.

 

Deep                                   down you know it works.  Become a Hero–forget what you were before.  Buy someone a car.  We’ve got your bow.  And after?  You can get ripped on New Year’s when you’re gut-grinding over the payments.  Calm down.  It’s all good.  “It was Christmas,” you can always explain.  Americans will understand.  They also know the Christmas Shill’s glistening charms.

Remember.  Keep your answers short.  “It was Christmas.”

 

 

How does it make sense that nearly every ad piece for every company contains some form of crap?  Bits and tattered bits of dishonesty have been played for so long that the notion of noticing has utterly vanished.  Maybe not.  Let’s take a quick look.

 

Mercedes ad with White Dog.  Awesome.  Truth factor?  2/4.  Rating?  Wonderful.  Snowy night we’re above a court of white cars 2×2 on a snowy road through the fat conifers.  Gorgeous.  Suddenly action halts leaving eight luxury Mercedes sleighs billowing white puffs while idling in the woods.  High-beams light tumbling flakes.  Santa looks over.  Sweet white dog jumps into snow to vanish amid the trees.  Cars idle in near silence and she’s back.  She hops in and looks to Santa and suddenly they’re off in the night.  That’s how Santa rolls.

 

Of course we were sold, but in a purely seasonal manner.  Acceptability rating?  4/4.  Who else puts Santa and crew in a fleet of Benz yo?  Besides, you’ve just enjoyed front row seats on a night sleigh ride in lux-style, with a super-lovable smart dog, and you didn’t pay a dime.

Go in here.  They’ve got stories and tales to tell you.  See?

 

We all love it–being lied to.  Or, maybe more accurately there are times when it ranks higher than hearing the precise truth.  It’s natural.  Who wants to hear that they deserve a bucket of rocks this year, in place  of a bonus, because they landed 10% fewer clients?

Soundtrack.  “Shine Away,” Tesla

In reality being lied to is the American way.  We grew up with it–like trash water bottles.  Now it’s nothing.  Normal.  Next.  Christmas.  Out comes the Christmas Shill and the lying’s suddenly fun.  It’s bright, cheery, expectant.

 

 

Christmas lying is about perfection–its’ like “Engagement season.”  Clearly understanding advertising in the Christmas season frees us to enjoy it.  No?  Raise of hands–who hasn’t thrilled at the bells and horses in a Budweiser ad?  Only the spirit-dead would fail to flutter at horses in the snow, manes flipping,  kicking powder, bells in a spangled night.  That’s why they make them.  We love them for it.  Lie to us again–please.

Lie to us–please.  Yeah, like that.  That’s my closet–you see it don’t you?

 

 

Ever wonder about those luscious flouncy bows in pristine Christmas car ads?  Us too.  You can buy those.  The bow of champions.

    1. George was dark and gloomy and right long ago. Dish out a line of nonsense long enough and the will to resist evaporates. That’s how 4 lights become 5. Eisenhower warned us about the “military industrial complex.” The General had read Orwell.
