  • Sometimes it's better to keep the mystery unexplained.

Everyone has experienced having an advert jingle or catchy slogan stuck in their head.

But a new concept is literally putting adverts straight into people's skulls by using 'bone conduction - the transfer of sound to the inner ear through the bones of the skull.

Advertising agency BBDO is using a combination of the concept and clever technology to allow individual commuters to hear an advert in a noisy train carriage.

Imo, the past and present in advertising is bad enough, now the future of advertising looks intrusively terrifying. And we will just let it happen. Newer generations are numb to it.
I see now how TV shows are slipping in a bit of the show you are watching between commercials to stop you from pressing the skip button, (7x on our system) between commercials.
And now while watching a benign cooking channel they advert for a serial killer show on another channel. Choices are not ours.
