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 ?
