A 5-minute questionnaire about controversial ads (University project)

Recommended Posts

Hi! Could you fill out our questionnaire about controversial ads? It's an assignment for our english/business class at the university, and it really shouldn't take more than five minutes to fill it out, but it would mean 3 credits to us. It's completely anonymous. English is not our native language, so please disregard any typos or any type of ungrammaticality.

 

Thank you,

Natalia and David

Just out of curiosity, did you have to give an email address or any other personal information to "Natalia and David" whose first language is not English?

No.

I did the questionnaire. It's really about 5 mins or so.

Yeah, you got us, damn. We are russian/hungarian spies. Must be a f.ing detective.

Cute. I get snarky replies like that from these other people with English names and heavy accents phoning me up to tell me they're from Microsoft and want to fix my computer or tell me I've won a prize.

 

I would be a little less suspicious of you, having your 360 posts here, but skepticism dies hard.

Dude, relax, you were smarter than everybody else, you're safe now. Just let us steal money and identities in peace, okay?

I was originally thinking more phone  scammer from New Delhi kind of thing but happy to be wrong.

 

Believe it or not though, there are  people on the internet who don't always tell you the truth about who they are. Or so I've heard...

Done! Some advice: I noticed a few questions where the list of options weren't exhaustive. For instance, on the final question, there wasn't really an answer for those who've never used Gillete before and still won't.

That's fair, but there are a few things that suggest otherwise:

 

1. Rubik's English is far superior to that of most scammers

2. These kinds of surveys are very common in University projects (I had to conduct a few myself)

3. Rubik has a fairly long history of being a regular, sensible CDC poster
