George Carlin Classic Advertising Lullaby

by Lisa Merriam

It has been 20 years since seen this classic George Carlin bit “Advertising Lullaby” premiered, it’s definitely worth a refresher. In these days of social media censorship and shutting down free speech, this icon is worth a fresh listen. Note, a few of the “Seven Dirty Words” are included, so if you are offended by such, please click away before the end of the video. As a content strategist , producer and copywriter—I find it brilliant and timeless. And free speech, even commercial speech, is something to defend (my view, not the official view of the American Marketing Association).
