The celebrity sell-out - People - Entertainment - theage.com.au

The celebrity sell-out - People - Entertainment - theage.com.au
This kind of thing, the whole celebrity endorsement culture, pisses me off enormously. It really just irritates me massively that our culture is so shallow that we buy so much stuff just because a celebrity gets paid to appear in their ads.

I particularly like the little Tim Costello bit at the bottom.

I reckon the dude's suggesting that we all do, in a sense, have a price.

Whilst I disagree about the 'all' bit, perhaps 98% would be a pretty close number.
