You may have noticed in Mazu and on our social channels, our art team has been having a little fun parodying Ad Campaigns of the past by giving them a fun Mazu spin. The ads we’ve had fun with are all from brands or campaigns we have admired or that impacted our team members as we grew up. (This gives you a clue to the age of many of the Mazu team;)
At Mazu, we pride ourselves in being an online platform for Parents AND Children that doesn’t track or sell data, including having very strict guidelines pertaining to advertising, but we didn’t want that to stop us having a little fun with some of these iconic campaigns. We hope you enjoy what we came up with. If you have a suggestion for an ad we can MAZU-ify, let us know!
We also hope to spark a larger debate on advertising in our cultures, especially as it pertains to children. We would love to know your thoughts around the following:
- Should there be limitations on ads when it comes to our kids, and how should those limitations work?
- How does it make you feel that companies are marketing to younger ages using new sophisticated methods?
- Are you aware of how many marketing messages a day your child sees?
- Would you as a parent approve your child seeing marketing messages if it meant free access to platforms/content?
