Understanding Parent companies

Image not displayed

(right click, open image in new tab)

Every brand you can think of, for the most part, has a parent company. That parent company owns and controls your favorite brands, without any evident marking that shows it's origin. No one can sit down and memorize who owns what but it's important to remember when considering new brands.

For example, above we mentioned that Unilever owns Ben and Jerrys, they also own Good Sense, Breyers, Popcycle, Fudgecycle, Cornetto, Klondike and Magnum ice-cream brands also. Makes it very ironic that they would own SlimFast.

The key here is that they clearly have no principal. Only want money and will have a marketing campaign to match a brand that will cater to every type of consumer.


Lets look at P&G
Do you prefer Cheer cause it's cheap, or Tide because it's reliable?
Do you prefer Bounce or Downy dryer sheets?
Dawn or Joy in your dishes?
It really doesn't F*#^'n matter because it's made by the same people.

Bottom line, don't pay attention to advertising. They will sell one product to the stay at home mom, and sell the same product under a different name to the business woman.


Yes, this is how the economy works.

Nothing new.

I just saw this today - it's Tom Sturridge and Sienna Miller in the new Burberry campaign. Ok - she's a slim girl - but her waist is smaller than her head in this photo...

This type of photoshopping should be illegal. It's a big, fat lie.

It is such a disservice to women and can really be dangerous for young girls striving for a body image that doesn't exist anywhere but in pixels.

Just saw this image posted on FB - crazy! I love the before pic, btw, that would be a goal body for me. The 2nd looks like a comic book superheroine.

Browsing this thread and noticed the ad scrolling across the bottom:- for PS type software (several different types in fact-I've identified about 3). Now that's got to be ironic.
huh

The ads are based on your cookies. Because you are looking at a thread about photoshop, you may get ads for that or similar software. Same thing happens in HGC threads.

I don't know if this thread makes me want to laugh or cry. It seems so wrong that they do this.

Thanks OP

Love this thread! I knew that they photoshopped these things but you know, the temptation is always there to want to look like these impossible people!

Here is a video showing the giraffe neck edit and other elongating and trimming, and making a model look completely different than how she really looks.

Bumping so I don't lose thread. About to do some work in a youth club. This may make a good display.

Also going to need some of the references I think.

It's all marketing to photoshop people on magazines, cause a lot of people look up to the men and woman in those magazines and wanna strive for the same thing, heck a lot of people on MFP look great and i admit, i would like to be anything near some of the men here, but being realistic i know that would take me more then 10 years, so i just wanna got for a healthy lifestyle that suits me, and don't give a f*ck anymore about how people look at me nowadays, i know i am doing good with my new lifestyle

And they chopped off his thumb to do it. Also, where the heck is her neck? Even a black turtleneck wouldn't go right up to her jaw line.
