News Comments > Ads in Titan?
32. Re: Ads in Titan? Jan 24, 2012, 07:07 web-cyborg
How do you know there would be ads in the future? Maybe the populace got sick of their corp overlords and squashed the flood of advertisements on tv and everywhere else. Maybe it would be more of a gated community type of thing where political signs on your lawn and any class-less advertising pollution in public is outlawed. Or maybe the mass public would be so in debt, poor, or jobless that most advertising would be wasted on them.

Futurama episode where in the far future the character "Fry" is upset when he starts having dreams with advertising in them:

"Leela: Didn't you have ads in the 21st century?"
Fry: Well sure, but not in our dreams. Only on TV and radio, and in magazines, and movies, and at ball games... and on buses and milk cartons and t-shirts, and bananas and written on the sky. But not in dreams, no siree"

Its never enough. There are people bent on squeezing every last drop of blood they can from the herd. Its always the way - creativity, artistry, workmanship vs insatiable gluttony. Its not enough to be fat, they become morbidly obese with wealth. Insatiable, eventually the bottom falls out and we are all left swimming in sh*t.
The pressure on such a popular franchise, legally, morally, or via other coercion must be enormous.

Regarding toys, take a look at the start wars franchise revenue.. Perhaps another factor regarding why the movies turned to s*ck after empire (imo lol).
