...When are fuckers going to figure out that I haven't paid attention to advertisement after say the age of 10 or so....

To me it seems that the ad people know that, it's the hidden secret of the industry. However, that does not prevent them from telling the advertisers, i.e., those who buy the ad slots, that advertising works.
