WHERE THE ARE
Max had a simple room
Then companies decided to tell Max about their products on his walls
But soon there were so many that Max was getting confused.
So companies branded the walls so Max could recognise them.
They all fought for Max’s attention.
And so, the companies and their brands talked a lot TO Max.   Max http://www.flickr.com/photos/fotologic/1119391517/
