Advertising is everywhere; you look at any sporting event and ads are all over the field. Corporations need to bombard you about their products and they do it whenever and wherever they can, and since they want your attention why not have them advertise on mousetraps? What better time than to think about a corporation’s product than when you pick up your trap with a dead rodent? These corporations deserve your attention since most either exploit overseas labor(Nike), exploit workers/unions(Walmart, Enron), produce cheap synthetic unhealthy food(McDonalds), or influence and profit from war and oil(Halliburton, ExxonMobil).
