"Marketing to teens is no less and no more powerful or underhanded than marketing to any other affinity group. Heaven help us from those who would save us from ourselves."
Chief creative officer/EastWest Creative/New York
"The negative implications of marketing to teens are overrated. Teens are aware of ads and like them. They are an inevitable part of the consumer society that we live in. Given that teens, like adults, are bombarded by messages from so many angles I am very doubtful that it would actually be possible to regulate all of them even if we wanted to."
"These teens have parents, right?"
