<< The biggest irony about the ad is that, although
the ultimate audience target is the 30-50 age group
(the potential car buyers), it is clearly catering to all
of the visual and aural stimuli that appeals to the teen
and 20's set. A fascinating but disappointing ad.
Well, it's an old game. The older I get, the more stuff
I get in the mail telling me where to spend my money
in order to stay young. The idea with the Porsche
is to preserve the illusion of youthfulness by driving
an auto with a youthful image. When the older set
starts driving boom cars is when I will be ready to leave
A lot of our problems would be diminished if we could
just destroy the stigma associated with aging.
