M: Advertising. Yeah. Advertisements are important. Advertising is important because it's an industry, right? Advertising. And also we can say, for example, advertising executives. So what did you mean by these advertising executives?
R: Well, they're people that are, I suppose in charge of advertising departments. So an executive is like a higher level, an if it'd advertising executive than they're the higher level employees that organize all the advertising.
M: And when you say that, I dislike ads, you can say I can't stand them. I hate all advertisements. All adverts. And then Rory said that, well, I like some of them. Right? So, and Iron Brew. That's really Scottish, right?
R: Well, allegedly, it's really Scottish. But you can get it in England. Like people say it's hard to find, it's not. it shouldn't be hard to find.
M: And then we can like some ads because of their borderline offensive humour. So humour, offensive humour, about what, Rory? What's offensive humour?
R: Well, I think the... Well, we probably shouldn't dwell on this too much because it's gonna get cancelled. But like offensive humour is usually about some kind of subject that people find quite taboo. Or it's like extremely offbeat. For example, in one of the Iron Brew adverts there's, they're singing about Iron Brew. And then the woman in the video, the mother says, I love Iron Brew, even though I used to be a man. So it's like, totally irrelevant to enjoying Iron Brew. But she just like breaks into this solo number, while all the other members of the family look at her like, what did you just say?
M: Yeah, and if you say that something is offbeat. It's one word. It means that something is different from the ordinary, something like unusual. But still, it's positive, right? Offbeat?
R: It means that something's irregular, that could be positive or negative, depending on how, how you like your comedy.
M: For example, we can say, oh, he's got an offbeat sense of humour, right? Or, I like the ads with an offbeat sense of humour. So extraordinary, something unusual. So yeah. And Rory said like, some ads have borderline offensive humour, offbeat humour. And then you said that edgy. You also said edgy. Edgy humour, yeah?
R: Yeah. But edgy just means like, close to, well, it's just like close to being offensive or getting you in trouble with the wider public who might be more sensitive than you are.
M: So can I say that, well, usually I hate advertisements, but some adverts which are edgy and offbeat are quite okay for me.
R: Oh, well, they're not okay for you, you can find them funny or find them entertaining, you have to explain why you like them.
M: So I find edgy adverts funny or entertaining. So edgy adverts, right? Adverts can negatively influence our choices, right? So Rory follows somebody on social media. He goes there and buys their products, you, dear listener, viewer, our favourite person, watch us, listen to us and then you go and buy what, Rory?
R: If you're so inclined, you could buy our premium episodes for part two and part three, you will find the links for those in the description below. Now that I've completely sold myself out.
M: Yeah, so Rory has just sold himself. Okay. Yeah. So some ads, not our ads, some ads can negatively influence our choice or could have a negative effect, a negative influence on our choice. And then Rory made an example about miracle supplement. What did you mean by miracle supplement ads?
R: Well, you see them on, well, maybe you don't see them on your social media feeds. But you can see them on Instagram, you have like these absolutely massive guys who are advertising these... They could be pills or powders that people take. And apparently, they make you look great. But that's, they're called... Like they're called supplements for a reason. It's like something that you add on to something but they sell it like it's the main thing. So that should be your first clue that something's not correct. But that requires people to have a grasp of, well, a good grasp of language. So that's what they are. It could be... To be honest, they do it for everything and it's all absolute nonsense.
M: Yeah, you can say that I don't like advertisement, because they are dishonest. And people cheat. And they lie. And they are all a bunch of lies.
