Bloomberg's Ad Spend

Bloomberg attracted few votes — but his ads still grabbed the attention of many kids

Via MeFi, where I wrote:

As we've watched lies about online advertising destroy the traditional media world, it seems to me that this is a lesson kind of on the same scale as when all of those Facebook misrepresentations about the efficacy of video destroyed so many media outlets.

I mean, this is a guy who presumably was hiring people who knew how to do savvy ad buys, and spending a sh*load of money, and basically ended up marketing to middle schoolers.

How many other ad managers are waking up right now and realizing that how the impressions of their spends were being represented to them are total bullshit? "I was hoping to target 35-50 year old women, and instead I got 13 year old boys..."

We will not edit your comments. However, we may delete your comments, or cause them to be hidden behind another link, if we feel they detract from the conversation. Commercial plugs are fine, if they are relevant to the conversation, and if you don't try to pretend to be a consumer. Annoying endorsements will be deleted if you're lucky, if you're not a whole bunch of people smarter and more articulate than you will ridicule you, and we will leave such ridicule in place.
