I have been watching these debates that have been happening in the US about gun control and one thing that I saw was that interview dome with Alex Jones on Piers Morgan. Was it just me or did it seem like one person simply tried to yell the loudest to get as much attention as possible? That was kind of interesting I thought as it is kind of the flip side on what people can do to generate controversy and attention as opposed to the other road of trying to be civilized, so to speak.
This reminds me of an incident I saw with a lady at a store who was trying to return a product on the basis that she simply didn’t like it. This was like a movie and so obviously the store couldn’t just take it back. Her solution to getting what she wanted was that she simply started to yell in-front of everyone saying how upset she was at the product and sure enough she eventually got what she wanted in terms of getting a refund.
I was just thinking from a marketing point of view that when it comes to certain things it’s kind of funny as you could spend the time to think of something brilliant and unique to get results or like that you can just tell the person to do something extremely brash. I suppose it would be a PR nightmare, but if you were just trying to get attention in general I guess it can come down to that philosophy that any publicity is good publicity.
