Marketing to Doctors – Last Week Tonight with John Oliver: (HBO)

This video is funny as Hell.  But it’s scary as Hell too!

Did you know that 9 out of 10 Big Pharma companies spend more on marketing than they do on research!

If that’s not worrying, then how about this.  In 2013, these chemical giants spent $4 Billion on marketing to patients and an astonishing $24 Billion marketing to Doctors!

As you will see, their marketing events look like Hollywood blockbuster movie launches.  And here is one of the moving, healing appeals made by the host of the advair launch:  “There are people in this room who are going to make an UNGODLY sum of money selling Advair”  Honestly – I couldn’t make this stuff up if I tried!

If you were ever in any doubt that the pharmaceutical industry is a corrupted, money hungry relic, I urge you to watch this video.  Priceless!
