The worst of Covid advertising

The Naked Emperor’s Newsletter | April 16, 2022

Advertising / propaganda played a massive part in keeping citizens compliant and afraid. Quite frankly, advertising companies should feel ashamed with the amount of societal manipulation they caused in exchange for government coin.

Early on in the pandemic, the Scientific Advisory Group for Emergencies (SAGE) in the UK called for an increase in the perceived threat of Covid by using hard-hitting emotional messages. However, it has since been revealed that government contracts and messages were in place weeks before lockdowns were even suggested.

These adverts were produced in collaboration with behavioural scientists, trying to nudge people to do what they wanted using tactics that operate below the level of awareness.

The UK spent over £240 million on these adverts in 2020 and up to £320 million in 2021. Obscene amounts of money. To put this in context, the government spent £46 million on advertising “Get Ready for Brexit” in 2019, the biggest spend since the second world war.

I have posted some of the worst images from the UK below. They made people feel guilty, ashamed, worried that they would kill people and angry against those who did not precisely follow the rules.

  1. I complained about a Welsh government ad where they asserted that vaccination would prevent the spread of Covid19, a statement they must know to be untrue. However, I’ve had no response from ASA. I guess I’m not important enough and /or they are never going to do anything about the lies the governments have fed us.

    The MSM(in Britain, USA and the rest of the World, are the Propaganda arm of the Governments. In Australia, Rupert dominates the Newspapers and airwaves. His papers are notorious for spreading Propaganda. I refuse to buy any of his products, and I recommend everyone else does the same. He is worse than The Devil.
