Advertising has a very interesting history. From the town criers who reported what was going on from the local village or down from the kings to other people who would post when their business was dong something, marketing has been around since humans got over the "flight-or-fight" mechanism.

Well, Mashable created a video that looks into the history of advertising. The bad part is, it's only 70 seconds.

Advertising and marketing are tools for businesses, and we should be finding more ways to use the young marketing professionals. We need to translate that it is important to know the history before coming into the industry.

What interesting points did they touch that you found interesting? What did you wish they touched on?
