Astroturfing: corporate interests disguised as spontaneous popular movements

"The term 'astroturfing' is a play on the term 'grassroots movement,' since the grass is fake. Astroturfing has been attempted by online businesses who present a product as being highly desired and sought out by a certain customer base via company-sponsored message board posts, blogs or articles when there is no evidence to support such an assertion."

Drunk Driving Prevention: advertising campaigns

"Since launching this campaign in 1983, more than 68% of Americans exposed to the advertising have tried to prevent someone from driving drunk. In 1998, America experienced its lowest number of alcohol–related fatalities since the U.S. Department of Transportation began keeping records. Campaign taglines have included: 'Drinking & Driving Can Kill A Friendship' and 'Friends Don't Let Friends Drive Drunk.'"

(The Advertising Council, USA)
