Advertising is all about selling shit and what the creators of SquatyPotty have done here is the ultimate in dream factory product marketing. These guys will push a lot of plastic stools through their distribution pipeline and make people feel like they're eating delicious unicorn poop. Working on multiple levels the commercial is informative, illuminating, humorous, scientific and fantasy all wrapped into one tidy package. At a meta-level it is one of the most subversive advertisements ever created as it lays bare-bottom the base purpose of ALL advertising in consumer culture. Bravo!
Who voted for this guy? It's been ten days since the results of the Maricopa County, Arizona ballot audit were released to the public and presented at a hearing held by the state senate. This exercise in democratic accountability had been going on for months and, if reports are to be believed, was completed well over a month before the September 24th hearing where overwhelming proof of an illegitimate election was presented to lawmakers . The audit showed multiple irregularities, fake ballots, duplicate counts, errors, omissions and egregious acts of sabotage and obstinance by the Maricopa County board of supervisors who did everything they could to withhold and destroy evidence of wrongdoing from the citizen sleuths. The misfeasance of Arizona's political leaders was clearly defined, shocking and (for some) beyond belief but somehow these facts were discovered, organized, packaged and suppressed for MONTHS by the Cyber Ninjas who were attempting to "get to the bottom&q
