Ever heard the saying " smoke & mirrors"? I can pretty much assure you ALL auto sector engineers design cars with reliable quality in mind.....the issue becomes a problem when the bean counters cut in and start "shopping around" for cheaper alternatives to particular systems/parts and outsource jobs in the name of the almighty dollar!
We're living in a world where things come with expiry dates stamped into them; cars, planes, engines, clothing, boats and the list goes on...the profit margins remain the given, more so if a $20.00 part can be had for $8.00....and we continue to buy into the dream...
Ads are targeted to certain demographics...they usually touch on quality, reliability, and the most important of all, product exclusivity....once a person identifies with these advertising elements,the rest is a matter of buying into the dream ( deceit).
Sharon Jones/Dap Kings just sold usage rights to another song to glorify the Kureg coffee maker...." 100 Days, 100 Nights...and it's a current ad...young mid 30's family going through the first 3 months of baby's puking, keeping them awake, and complete chaos... but find solace in a 2am cup of coffee...NO dialogue,just the song....smoke & mirrors yet again!
