So there's this song from your youth. Whenever you listen to it, it brings back a whole lot of good memories, and you end up going through the rest of your day with a smile. Advertising is all about appealing to emotion to make a sale, and few things hold more unalloyed positive emotion than a favorite song. It's not surprising that the advertising industry very quickly seized upon the idea of buying the rights to a song and using it in an ad. The basic argument is that the good feelings the viewer has for the song will be transferred at least in part to the product, making a new customer or reinforcing an existing one.

He's a great musician but doesn't seem to have the fashion sense to design anything more than caveman costumes," Matthews said. West also acknowledged his romantic feelings for Kim Kardashian in 'Theraflu,' even admitting that he "fell in love" with the reality star before she married Kris Humphries. The Keeping Up with the Kardashians star was also recently targeted by an animal rights advocate, who dumped flour on her head because she has worn fur. PETA has denied responsibility for organising the flour bombing , but has offered to fund the attacker's legal defence. Type keyword s to search. Advertisement - Continue Reading Below.
