Advertising has long ago become an integral part of our lives. What once was a very rare thing nowadays is something we see everywhere and something that has become an outstanding "trade engine". To make this engine work contemporary businessmen try different kinds of advertising. The main trick is to have the advertisement in the place of a "mass concourse" of people. We all have observed how hard they try in getting our attention to the products, offering us almost impossible discounts and telling how much they care about us. This is a part of our lives and though there have been protests against it nothing seems to change. Therefore people accept it. Advertising is not about bugging us. It is in the first place about "healthy" competition, where you are offered products, evaluate the, find what is most suitable for you and buy it.

They take a great advantage from letting people shop for anything sitting in their houses and spending a minimum amount of time on it. ere is no way to any company to give it away because giving it away would mean "the beginning of the end". The Chairman-CEO of Procter& Gamble, Mr.Artzt said: "We can't be sure that ad-supported TV programming will have a future"[Thorson 9].
