Getting Started

Did you know that you’ll watch an average of 22,000 hours of television before graduating from high school? (David Shenk, author of Data Smog)

Did you know that by the time they leave school, most North American children will have seen over 600,000 commercials? (Strangers in the House, NFB video)

In other words, we are bombarded daily with advertisements on television, in magazines, newspapers, radio, billboards, flyers, Internet, etc. Whether you want them to or not, these commercials influence you in your choices of what to wear, how you should look, how you should act and what you should have. Some say that this is brainwashing.

Try the following logo quiz and slogan quiz to see if advertising has worked on you!
