Advertising isn't dead yet, but it is dying. Television was it's heyday. Studies have shown that internet advertising is not nearly as effective as Television was. It has also been shown that younger generations build up an immunity to traditional advertising, hence the growth of "influencers" where it is the personality of the person that uses the product that is important, not the attributes of the product itself.

It is nearly impossible for an advertiser to reach me for example. I don't use social platforms, I don't pay attention to ads on youtube, I don't watch regular TV. I block most internet advertising, and avoid click bait. I have excellent email spam filters.

In fact, old fashioned mailed circulars are the one form of advertising I actually may peruse in the short walk between my mail box and the garbage bin.
Bullshit! The real-er problem is woke-driven censorship.
I have zero problem clicking on the Skip Ad button of a youtube video as
soon as it pops up. The oddest part of my experience is the number of
ads, plus the what must be super high resolution (= huge download size)
of their ads.

Bored, inventive tv scientists have created 8K tele, which is 16 times the
resolution of full HD. Great, yes! The internet pipelines will be even fuller
of pimply faced sitcoms, news reporters and talking heads. Not all peeps
on tv and in movies have flawless skin that the public wants to gaze at.
