There’s no question that, when it comes to advertising, the US market is much more…prudish.
Take a look at this M&M’s campaign Down Under…..
The sly innuendos. The fact that we’re watching “nude” M&M candies interact, including mixed company. (You never know what to expect when you mix crispy, peanut and plain. Whoa!)
But no matter how great the animation, as a writer, it gets very distracting to see typos.
Or maybe I just need to “confont” my own demons…..stripping away at my shell and face that even I’ve made typographical errors when writing copy. It is easy to “read” into what has been written and overlook very obvious errors.
Live and learn….
