Holiday Cheer

Is it just me, or are there tons of diamond ads on the tube lately? Maybe the industry is worried that thanks to Leonardo DiCaprio's movie, people are going to opt out of purchasing the blood stones.

Today, Kottke posted a link to this cheery photo essay on diamonds. Check it out!

Update: LA Times published an article on this topic.

I've noticed the proliferation of diamond commericals too.

All I know is that when I was part of this fight to keep Wal-Mart out of a little city around here, the entire San Gabriel media market was saturated with WM commericials that talked ad naseum about what great employers they are. The Wal-Mart got built (illegally) and the commercials stopped. The few that remain are all about how happy your kid will be when you buy him cheap electronics for christmas.
