Why do they synchronise commercials to come on the same time
on tv channels?
So, I go on YouTube for my entertainment via my tv ( can’t install adblockers) Now they get me here, I’m bombarded with commercials.
Then I have to go through my post to sift out the junk mail.
To any advertising executive please read this - Now in my middle age of life, don’t think not once have I ever been influenced to buy something because of adverts in any sharp or form.

YouTube is not a charity and has to make money by running paid for adverts. If you do not like it stick to watching the BBC.
Now in my middle age of life, don’t think not once have I ever been influenced to buy something because of adverts in any sharp or form.
I think many of us think that we are never influenced by adverts, but I suspect we are, even if only subconsciously, or by /brand recognition etc .
No, Just no. After the football world cup, the tv (extortion) license won’t be renewed. I have done it before – 14 years legally without a license, I will permanently do it again.
Anyway I will not respond anymore as the threads you start always tend to 'deteriorate'
No adverts to watch, because I won’t have a tv licence. My PC (personal computer) is hook up to the tv so I can watch YouTube with leisure (aided by adblockers). Now I can listen to Wagner’s The Ring Cycle without someone trying to sell me a car.
I was just venting about the relentless commercials.
Splitting hairs with a grammatical error ? Are you miffed I’m no longer supporting the Labour party mouthpiece?
It is annoying that the adverts are synchornised.. I guess it's a deliberate plan to deter channel hopping when the ad's start.
For me, 100% it does not – that is my point.
Anything I buy is governed by price. If their is a advert for bottled water it does not induce me to buy the product, tap water is fine by me, chlorine be dammed. Does Aldi advertise on tv? If I need to buy toothpaste the cheapest brand will do, I’m not even influence by their junk mail that come in the post – straight in the bin without a curiosity look.
Subliminal adverts/messages won’t effect me, and i doubt Stockholm syndrome would have any impact on me either. I’m head strong and resolute.
