I’m old enough to be vaguely aware of that, I was more just remarking on how differently marketing is done now. It’s like the difference between nationally broadcast and local commercials for your small town whatever. There’s a very perceptibly different approach, level of quality, all of that. It’s just not something that I’m always consciously aware of, the present cognitive behavioral psychology-driven, mirror smooth polish that national/international ad campaigns have now would have been unimaginable to us back in the 80’s, even into the 90’s.
I’m not mourning an aesthetic, or praising either, I’m just remarking on how much things have changed since I was a kid and now. I still feel like the 90’s were modern, and just ten years ago, and things like that give me a more accurate perspective, I suppose.
