A different fear factor post...

Ok so we are all sick of FF exploiting and harming animals we love but writing letters to the network and the show arent working... why not try looking at this from a business approach instead?

The way to stop a show is not to attack the show... the more you do that the more hype the show gets and the higher the ratings will go (would Marilyn Manson have ever gotten as big as he did without the Church making such a stink over him?)

The key is to hit them in the wallet... I notice that Pepsi had the majority of the commercials during FF last night so if you want to write to someone and complain do it to Pepsi and any other company that is advertising with Fear factor... a company surely wont sponsor a show that is making people mad right? (Pepsi wont even say the word God on their cans anymore over a mouthy minority so who knows what the herpers could accomplish?)

I refuse to watch the show.

The problem I see is You knew the major sponsor was Pepsi, which also mean you had to watch the show to know this. Evey other day on here there is a new post about this horrible show, describing every episode minute for minute. Which also means they are all watching the show. Sounds kinda hipocritical doesn't it?

Complaining to the Supporters, will help. But continueing to watch the show won't.

Also... Every company fears the religeous sector of society. I'm Sure Pepsi and other sponsors know whats going on, and probably don't really care about the animals, only their wallet. Also as your responding o the sponsors, they also see the amount of people that they really are reaching. So they are supported by the viewing numbers to keep advertising on this show.

I hate to say it but some organized Animal Welfare group with a large responsible voice needs to take charge of this.

You can't go up against something when you have no idea on it. Watching it will give you some ideas on what to do and how to go about accomplishing the goal. Chris did just that. You have to find out what it's about and there's really only one to find the weakness opponent and it's not by guessing. Nothing hipocritical about it unlss he watches the show for the joy of intertainment.

Guys. People have been writing sponsers, the show, and the TV networks for about two years now right?

IT IS NOT WORKING.

Something entirely different will be needed or just ignore the show. This round and round and round in the reptile ciricles looks like nothing but a joke IMHO because it was a good idea at first, but now just a waste of time. No one is listening to anyone, because this way is not working.

what you have to do is stop buying the sponsers products. not when it's convienient but all the time. write them and let them know you aren't buying their product. send proofs of purchase from competitors.

Get Heather to march with you and you can count in all of SCR. =) Joe once marched naked in his own front yard to protest a hungry turtle.
