However, everybody absolutely wants to be happy, and that's what keeps marketing teams in business. Personally I think they should all be fired in favor of a new and more creative crop of people, because their ploy has become vulgarly transparent.
Remember that annoying BnL theme from Wall-E?
Soda and Chapstick are the secrets for lasting happiness. Who knew?
Speaking for myself, I am insulted that these corporations assume their product is all it will take to make me happy. It's as if they're trying to shove a Coke in my mouth like a pacifier. The truth is nobody is going to be happy until we stop trying to distract ourselves from our selfish materialistic lives and start living like this world has a purpose beyond our personal gratification.
And, by the way, I'll take Burt's Bees over Chapstick any day.
