The ads made me do it

To quote a new poll conducted by Harris Interactive: 66% of Americans believe that the  advertising industry is partially to blame for the current economic crisis because they caused people to buy things they couldn’t afford. 33% believe that they have a complete or great deal of responsibility. At the same time, 54% of respondents said friends and family were not responsible for causing Americans to buy things they couldn’t afford.

I never knew advertising was that powerful.
