Today I will share some funny German supermarket #Superbowl #Advertising

Keep in mind:

* the superbowl is in the middle of the night here.
* this is their idea of "superbowl foods".
*this is funny as American as this wasn't a thing until recently.
First: Edeka / E Center. Full page spread on what the Superbowl is and why it is important:
Still Edeka / E Center:

Foods for your Superbowl Party.

Burgers and Hotdogs, roasted onion, pulled pork, condiments, some veggies/salad

Since people have been asking I thought I'd recap my #dystopia talk at @theuxcrunch from Thursday. The examples used are not what if scenarios. These all happened. #triggerwarning's apply. If you can make it thru to the end I have suggestions for how we can claw back some hope.
This is a quote you’ve all probably seen a million times. #Advertising & #techie shitheads love quoting it before they do trends porn. What they never seem to understand is how politically subversive the last bit is. B/c those wankers abuse it I swore I’d never use it.
Still, paraphrasing it is useful for my point. One person’s future is another person’s dystopia and thanks to the fundamental power of the Internet as a tool for distribution we can spread dystopia far and wide. Often before we know it, realise it, or even imagine it.

This all started because the #MetPolice & #LBRUT couldn't do their day jobs properly & decided to take the law into their own hands. It started as a small cover up 12 years ago but has turned into British State Persecution.

My company was raided. It should have been a straightforward matter. But the #MetPolice & #LBRUT forgot to seize my computer & came back to do a 2nd raid. The search warrant didn't permit a second entry, however, #LBRUT entered unlawfully

#Guardian #Telegraph #DailyMail #GMB #UK
Complaints were then made to my MP #VinceCable. He liaised with the #Metpolice & #LBRUT. And then weeks later, the search warrant was completely changed & was passed off as the search warrant executed on the day of the raids.

I wrote a piece about #phishing adverts on @Twitter a couple of weeks ago. @TwitterSupport had put it about that they had it under control. Here’s the article...

#security #digitaladvertising
Incredibly, it’s still going on. This is a #safety and #privacy issue that is not being addressed by @TwitterSupport.

This time @capgemini_aust are the main target and it is EXACTLY the same promoted advert that I highlighted in my article. link.medium.com/UXh4iZtCMR
The accounts used to legitimise the #scam this time are

@BenAllenCA @azariarachel @ARTNIGHTLDN @AKIpress_com and @67Kelechi.

Once again, all of them are @verified accounts. And this is still live over half an hour after it was posted.

Circling back to the AdWorld's #MeToo after a while.
A grand total of 13 Men were accused, some anonymously, some openly.
Subsequent posts will examine what happened (or didn't) with them, and with the ad world in general. #TimesUp #Advertising #MeToo

After the usual "shocked" "outraged" etc. reactions - mostly from men (sidenote: seriously, though, was this truly any surprise??), the big networks distanced themselves from the perpetrators. DAN went first, with the following

Followed quickly by Publicis.

Of course, it makes complete economic as well as PR sense to NOT have sexual harassment accused on payroll, for globally aligned and fairly well known companies

It's a criminal offence to falsifying a legal instrument. But if the #MetPolice / #LBRUT do it, then there is not even an investigation. 12 years of silence. Evidence to prove it - ukcoverup.com/search-warrant-

#skynews #lbc #theresamay #uk #bbcnews #coverup #c4news #worldnews #ukgov
Welcome to the #Metpolice who also changed & falsified my arrest details. Have a look at the evidence here ukcoverup.com/arrest-details as it's all easy to prove & that's why it's never addressed

A tiny thread, celebrating how great #design solves problems.
#Nudge
The great thing about a design #Nudge for anyone trying to think more creatively is that you can see the problem/solution plain as day...

1/ #THREAD Ah, teeny tiny demographical instance of something, hastily wound up to a coy, careful kind of un-endorsement of something else, even uses paper in a medical / scientific journal to try substantiate this un-endorsement placement #Beware #BullAtWork How 'well-connected'
2/ and how reminiscent of a certain type of anti-vaccination trolling / disinformation.😬 #Questions such as: A/what percentage of the population actually use the product B/ what percentage of that specific demographic have been injured seriously, in a clinical sense or in the --
3/ particular mode described in the, eh, 'article' ? C/ So even if as seems likely this only verifiably happened to a tiny % of users,& even if the argument that it is all just public knowledge/public info. is applied so it appears to be, lets say for the heck of it, 'authentic',
