What you can learn from the parody genre
When I started looking at the basic concepts of Pornographic Marketing, people told me not to be so silly. Nobody in their right minds looks at porn. I would be wasting my time. But first, if you don't know what a parody is, then take a moment to read this helpful clip that I took from the first page of google.
A porn parody is just that. A deliberate exaggeration for comic effect - done as a pornographic film.
So far so good.
It actually staggered me a little bit that virtually every TV show, film, politician, game show you can possibly think of have their own porn parody. Some examples are below.
Trump is an obvious target - but look how he plays up to the dominant male and the ever enthusiastic secretary looking eager and willing to please. Plays up to the worst stereotypes of men, women and sex possible - but that's another post.
Don't believe me - type "porn parody" into google images - the results will go on forever.
If you still need it spelling out - a porn parody is a film where little else happens - save for the cast having sex in the style of the mainstream media, personality or genre featured on the cover.
How do porn parodies help us as business owners?
Well - it is very simple. Porn parodies aren't made just for the sake of it. These are effectively feature films with all the costs that they entail. They are made with an audience in mind. The producers will already have established distribution channels, databases of people with credit cards ready to be swiped.
But - remember - everyone told me that nobody watches porn. So guess what. They were lying.
IGNORE WHAT PEOPLE SAY UNLESS THEY HAVE A PROVEN CAPACITY TO GIVE YOU MONEY.
What people do and what people say they do are a million years apart.
