"The most dangerous kind of advertising anyone can run today is
'safe advertising'... 'Safe advertising' that looks...so familiar, so
conventional, so reassuring, that it is actually invisible to the consumer.
So while 'safe advertising' may seem appropriate–on the surface–
the impact that it fails to deliver in the marketplace makes
'safe advertising' about as dangerous as you can get.
