Advertising is the greatest art form of the 20th century

Herbert Marshall McLuhan, CC (July 21, 1911 – December 31, 1980) was a Canadian philosopher of communication theory. His work is viewed as one of the cornerstones of the study of media theory, as well as having practical applications in the advertising and television industries.

McLuhan is known for coining the expressions the medium is the message and the global village, and for predicting the World Wide Web almost thirty years before it was invented.

I fully agree...To communicate a message can be a challenging at times for some. To communicate and motivate is an art indeed.

Strongly disagree with the quote. Art is so personal dear.
