The 30-Second Dream





Family, intimacy, vitality, and success
are four areas of deep emotional concern
where many commercials focus their promise.

"The general fear of not being loved
and then to be able by some product to be loved . . .”
Erich Fromm

Through "story" and song, television advertising
creates an environment that subliminally shapes
our view of ourselves and our world.

In an average lifetime, we spend the equivalent of six years
of full-time employment watching TV commercials.
