I went to see a movie this weekend and while I avoid the snack bar's obscene prices, I wanted to see how obscene they were these days. Trouble was, the board where prices are normally listed was a video screen which was currently showing an ad for Dasani bottled water. This crossed some imaginary line of acceptability in my head and I nearly combusted into flames. I want to know the prices and I want to know them now!
Small popcorn $5.50. Dasani bottled water $4.00.(Hey, wasn't my blog post title clever? I'm sure no one has used it for a post about advertising before!)
