OK, you got people's attention, but is it the kind you really want?

#marketing #stereotyping Well, if the goal was to get people talking, Samsung did succeed in that. But in the internet age we are learning that not all publicity is good publicity. BTW the vacuuming trick for the hair appeared in a video that showed how a dad made his daughter's pony tail.   It can do that, but it won't braid.


If you're longing for the good old days when bashing women was the way to go when using stereotyped marketing, just take a quick trip down memory lane with this collection of commercials.
