This is kinda creepy, but is it underhanded? I’m still not sure.
In South Korea, volunteers supporting one of the candidates have been spraying a perfume called Great Korea into the crowd at ralleys. They did the same at the polls. They say it’s in the hopes that people will remember what the candidate said and vote for him because of the smell, and they could be right.
Part of me wonders if that’s any different than campaign slogans and commercials that grab your attention, but to me, a smell seems more subliminal.
I guess he won, so I wonder if the smell helped. It sounded like he was already doing well with or without some perfume mist in the crowd.
