...advertisers will broadcast disembodied voices only you can hear, asking if you've ever contemplated murder.

Boy, how could THIS one possibly go wrong? Especially since they're going to pilot it in New York! Next up, I assume, are anonymous handwritten letters reading "WHY DONT YU JUST FUK THAT TEENAGER NEXT DOR" and holographic visions of angels projected on your bedroom ceiling at night that tell you to burn down a synagogue.

Sometimes people ask me why I am so down on advertising. This here? This is one reason I am so down on advertising.
