Went to watch the new Star Trek movie the other day (awesome movie by the way) and when they turned down the lights and before the movie previews started Cooke Aquaculture had a 30 second spot saying that they are farmers and farmers care about what they do. They sure are revving the PR machine.

NS_Sens,

 

Yeah, I enjoyed the Star Trek movie too. Found the 3D takes a little away from the "big picture" though.

 

As to the Cooke ads, I posted in "Aquaculture Ass. Fights back" on these.(Post 112 - if you are interested).

 

The propaganda machine is in high gear at Cooke. Maybe all the bad press needed to be countered with some lies (oops) I mean spin ...(uh) advertisement. (?)

 

They even started a website to "openly pen" all this wonderful, feel good crap.

 

Check out: http://cookefarms.ca/

 

By the way, wear your 3D glasses when visiting this site. You'll require them to clarify all the "blurred" reality.

I wasn't surprised about the ads, I did read your post in that topic. I was just surprised that they would place it in front of a blockbuster movie.

And I skipped the 3D thing, don't like 3D on live action movies.

I'm sure that Empire Theatres would have no concerns about selling advertising time to Cooke. After all, they sell their salmon in their grocery stores...

I started reading a book about anti-gravity and I just couldn't put it down.

No doubt, at the end of the day money is money.
