This is the newest advertising strategy from the dairy industry: let’s brainwash consumers to think that unless they are buying OUR product, they are only buying a cheap, sub-par imposter.
Hey dairy industry, your cheap tricks won’t work on me. Why? Because I’m smart enough to know that the ‘fake’ milk I drink (ie: almond milk, soy milk, coconut milk, etc.) doesn’t have to be ‘real’ milk to be worth my hard-earned money. You see, the ‘fake’ milk in my refrigerator is a far better product than that ‘real’ milk you guys are slinging. Unlike your ‘real’ milk, my ‘fake’ milk doesn’t harm animals, is better for the environment, provides more per serving of calcium and fiber (something your ‘real’ milk lacks) as well as a formidable amount of protein, at the same time as providing less saturated fat and zero cholesterol, contains much healthier phyto-estrogens (plant-based estrogens) rather than animal estrogens as well as more manganese (necessary for bone formation), thiamin, niacin, and magnesium, and it simply tastes better (got phlegm? not from the milk I drink!).
You know what I think? I think you’re scared. And you should be. You’re scared that all us ‘hippie’ animal rights activists are actually influencing your customer base to stop consuming your product. And we are. But it’s not very hard work considering the above listed pros and cons. You’ve made it far too easy for us. I have an idea… maybe you guys should think about selling ‘fake’ milk instead? Oh wait — you ARE!
It seems that supply and demand is in full swing, and guess what’s in demand: ‘fake’ milk! You guys clearly already know this, which is why you took the time to bother selling it at all. I guess you guys are finally starting to evolve considering our consumer-based natural selection.
(By the way, I have some news for you: YOU work for US. YOU provide the things that WE want. WE tell YOU what will sell, NOT the other way around.)
But don’t kid yourselves by thinking we’re actually going to buy your ‘fake’ milks over our truly compassionate ‘fake’ milks. See, not all ‘fake’ milks are created equal. This is because we know that the profits you gain from your ‘fake’ milk sales are just going to help fund the production of your ‘real’ milk — something we are very much against. So until you stop making ‘real’ milk and only produce ‘fake’ milk, you’re not getting a cent from me. There are so many truly compassionate companies selling superior products to yours. You’re fighting a losing battle. Nice try, though.
So please keep putting out these advertisements. They really show just how obsolete your entire industry has become. Don’t let the door hit your ass on the way out.
