How utterly, utterly depressing. I wonder what this teaches kids when everything they see is a goddamn advertisement. Will they grow up as mega-consumers, even worse than we are now? Will they grow up believing that advertising is the only way schools are able to educate them? Will they grow up with a programmed sense of loyalty to these corporations since they saw their ads every day at school? Or perhaps they’ll become numb to it and cause it to lose its effectiveness. Let’s watch!
When a school district in Minnesota decided to turn lockers into ad inventory, it didnt skimp on the creative palette. The Star Tribune in Minneapolis reports that some area schools are giving lockers over to an outfit called School Media. Now, students will put their lunches in lockers covered with a garish pink decal advertising the aquarium at the Mall of America.
And here I thought that putting ads on notes to parents was bloody disgusting. That’s just the tip of the iceberg!
