Bill Hicks on Marketing

Bill Hicks

    @earnalotreview In America we have a market that feeds off of fear…thus brings up the need for new items in alot of people. Not all people but alot. Why fear? Well we need to get a job in order to make money and without a job we will live in poverty and we don’t like poverty so we will need to work in order to buy things which = happiness….what makes me scratch my head is why does that all = happiness……why can’t we live in a society that works for the good of things?

    Quit putting a fucking dollar sign on every fucking thing on this planet. Value is the biggest burden and biggest gift of humanity.

    Nothing good happens in the world until
    somebody sells something to somebody
    and it Stays Sold.
    So why does the whole world hate marketers?

    @Overrated226 well said!

  13. XmuhrderXx says:

    awesome…hey you know whats funny….as soon as this is over a advertisement on how to get into marketing comes up :DDD

  14. molldrumlish says:

    @jts6790 RIP Bill .sorry for offending you. ps this video is shit.

  15. thatstheguy07 says:

    Speaking of killing yourself… the 548 idiuots who disliked this video should do so as well. Quickly.

  16. Overrated226 says:

    @starkl66 I agree. This is why Bill (sadly) never gained mainstream status. He told the truth & people generally don’t like to hear the truth.

  18. Shockerthe69 says:

    Worked in marketing for 7 months. Every day committing suicide or quitting seemed like a better option….

  19. MrChingchongdingdong says:

    -idly looking through youtube videos- “If your in marketing or advertisement kill yourself”………. -interest peaked-

  20. sugarcubicle says:


    Telling people to kill themselves can indeed be funny, but there really isnt anything very funny about this bit. “Hey, kill yourself”… sounds like 15 year old girls at the mall.

    I dunno, maybe 20 years ago when Hicks said it it was funny and original.

    Just noticed i cant see an advert on this page, maybe his advise was taken. Ive been noticing the amount of perfume adverts currently on tv in the run to christmas, how can you present me a product purely produced for smell through a medium of sight? I dont see how ryan renolds giving a mean stare or the guy from lost prancing about shows theyve made something that will make me smell pretty

    Bill Hicks hates Youtube ads.

  24. bijibadness says:

    “I understand the message. However I missed the part where telling people to kill themselves is funny. Marketing is a job nothing more. They provide people with things that they CHOOSE to buy. If people think they really care about their interests then they are retarded.”

    he’s a comedian, dipshit. you really think hes seriously telling people to kill themselves? that was his style. obviously you didn’t get it, which is cool, im just saying maybe dont take things so seriously from a COMEDIAN.

    “Quit putting a dollar sign on every fucking thing on this planet!”

    We should have heeded Bill’s words.

    Now ecological collapse is approaching.

    Thanks ad execs.

    Wonderful insight here. Lol on the Hot or Not 😉

    Each product mentioned fits a need and does it in a remarkable way.

    Thanks for sharing and have a powerful day!


  27. captain1morgan says:

    Seth makes the great point that he who’s ideas spread the best, wins. Everyone who works in marketing should write this down and put it on their desk where they will see it every day!!!

    sorry seth i could never get bored with cows, marketable does not mean worth making a remark about it, it means youve either forced, co-erced. or brainwashed your prey into submission. I will never believe business caters for demand, it just doesnt explain the world we live in, only on paper in a utopic delusion could that be the case. The purple cow is more esoteric than being remarkable, the whore of babylon was dressed in purple too. Doesnt make it something we should market, oh wait we do!

    this piece of shit jew keeps saying that if you have a technical, geinus mind, you are worthless… if you have an artsy fartsy mind, you deserve a high salary. If you are a talented machinist, engineer, technician, programmer, inventor, you deserve to be outsourced . This guy is dengerous and a piec of shit filthy jew parasite

  31. RymvTheGod says:

    One thing about the advertisement at the end, it’s challenged to actually grab your attention. TED doesn’t contradict its own speakers.

  32. TheAgentsForChange says:

    Think Seth Godin is totally right. He is one of the best TED speakers. Always rises to the occassion, prepares a ton (I imagine) and has something fresh to say.

    Strange how we discuss Business Principles of Effective Leadership here, in a Country I use to think was the USA,, lets talk Leadership,, huum? Why hasn’t there been any VOCAL Leaders around ‘Ever’ Exposing the Corrupt actions going on with Goldman Sachs, Wall Street, I.M.F., Globalism,, C.F.R., Trilateral Commission, Bilderburgers, and the Big Climategate GLOBAL Carbon Tax SCAM.
    Aren’t District Attorneys trained Leaders, my question here is WHO’S LEADING AMERICA????

  37. BeauJames59 says:

    Hmm, I wonder how much time in the studio it took Pearl Jam to record 96 albums?
