Right up there when they have a "simulated picture" on the TV set
during the TV Ad.
Or back in the old days when they were trying to sell us color TVs,
how do you represent a color picture on a B+W set, because if the
viewer already had a color set he wouldn't be a potential customer
(nobody had more than 1 set back then).
Or the promo telling you why you should subscribe to HBO, which is
*on* HBO, so you can't see it unless you already subscribe?
Who said Madison Avenue was smart ?
