Just come across this great presentation regarding the reality of mobile media advertising on youths or ‘Tha Yoof’. I like where they are going with this, some really good points in here. Even though I have just entered my 30’s I always have the sneaky suspicion that teenagers cringe at a lot of the so-called ‘cool’ ad campaigns that seem to be trying waaay too hard to appeal to their target market.
Talking of ‘cool’ advertising. I’ve noticed that the T-Mobile advert/flash mob done at Liverpool Street Station has gained about 800,000 views. As I was watching I again got the feeling that although there’s obviously a load of people that loved this, to the youth audience this is probably about as yesterday as happy slapping.
