In the case of ads the trick is to get the prospective customers to pay attention (pun intended).

Oh, that takes creativity and work. Creativity and work cost money. If it costs money, it hurts profits, so the CEO will cry that it "destroys jobs". It's much cheaper to be really really offensive. Didn't you see "The Huckster"?
