Anyone else notice/bothered by the music in the CapitalOne Savor ads? Every artist chosen died as result of savoring drugs more than life. Am I missing something? Reading too much into these ads?

If “savor” was a common term for “overdose”, then yes, that would be distasteful. However, I don’t think that’s the case.

I think the coincidence here is that many artists die of overdose. Which is a sad, sad thing.

“Savored drugs more than life” nice language (for real). Also I was super pissed that Prince’s people approved that. Money is money I guess. Is this campaign by DDB Chi or Y&R NYC?

I was surprised his people agreed as well.

They are also all African Americans who died. At least Whitney Houston, MJ, Prince. Pretty sure that’s not what they were going for, but damn, somebody has to catch that.

I think the point is that all 3 are African Americans who died from drugs, not that they are simply POC. But maybe I’m wrong? Honestly, they were all phenomenal artists so I see why you would want to use their music in general.

I am so tired of my sister and mom, and the pressure they apply on me to get married, 32 year old female and I have not met someone yet.

I feel like dying from the pressure.
