These disturbing snow globes are part of the Reclamation series by Thomas Doyle. They show death, murder, love, and life.

These are much more realistic than cheery snowmen, and they have the added bonus of letting you display them all year round.

I really, really want one. Does that make me sick and twisted? Not a badge I wear with particular pride, but I will live with it!

Implications - These snow globes exploit the human tendency to be drawn to emotional content. For companies to gain attention in a competitive marketplace, it's crucial to use advertising tactics that hone in on innate human inclinations such as love or happiness. By exploiting the basic needs of consumers, companies will attract a broad base of consumers and have an edge over their competitors.
