To Orwell Today,
re: CAMERA PHONE PIG ADS
according to your article, pigs are a "sex symbol", and you consider them bad. i, on the other hand consider all the telus creatures are cute, and i disagree with you. that's my opinion on the article, which i think was stupid.
I wasn't saying that PIGS are a sex-symbol, or that I consider them "bad". I was saying that the Telus ads are using pigs in sexual innuendo about watching pornogrpahy on cell phones, ie the phrase "Share some dirty pictures".
That article was written three years ago (even though you're just discovering it now, December 2006) and since that time cell-phone screens DO deliver porn on their handsets. See HARD CORE CELLPHONE PORN.
Pornography is a multi-billion dollar world-wide industry run by international organizations that will use ANY and ALL media to reel in all fish - big and small - children and adult.
See what Orwell said about it in 35.The Brotherhood and 25.Prolefeed and 30.Love Instinct & Family.
Using sex to sell product is nothing new. Here's a famous Coke ad from years ago:
FEEL THE CURVES! (Coca-Cola has dumped thousands of posters from its new advertising campaign after a graphic sexual image was found hidden in the picture. The poster shows a cartoon interpretation of a Coke bottle sitting on a bed of ice under the words "Feel The Curves!!". But an image, apparently depicting oral sex and which is only obvious by looking carefully, has been painted inside one icecube in one corner of the picture. Thousands of posters had been distributed to hotels and bottle shops across Sydney before the mistake was discovered by Coca-Cola management...This poster was released in the mid 80s and prompted a total recall of all posters...)
I hope that helps change your opinion on seemingly innocent ads.
All the best,
