It must be what happens when people get ice cream headaches that never go away. They start writing studies and reports about the certain, widespread and accepted evils of beer, like this one:
...the study found that 35 percent of the kids agreed that a Budweiser beer ad featuring a rock star ferret replacing talking lizards as the official beer mascot made them want to buy Budweiser. In contrast, only 5 percent said an Anheuser Busch beer ad focusing on a "Legacy of Quality" made them want to buy the beer. Of the 66 beers ads shown to the children, only five did not have elements -- humor, music, people characters, animal characters and story -- that appealed to kids.The study's authors conclude that their work provides further proof that alcohol advertising influences children who are years away from being able to drink legally. Seeing as the ads on TV by used car guys selling wrecked junkers to fools use humor, music, people characters, animal characters and story I would suppose that the authors of the beer study might conclude that moderately maintained mid-80s cars ought to be outlawed as well.
It never occurs to them that the issue is only about the power of TV ads and has nothing to do with beer.
