Vibrant Advertisements O_O

Hello.
I've always noticed a HUGE difference between an American potato chip bag compared to a Japanese potato chip bag when I go to my famous Japanese store I go to. So, I was just wondering if the Japanese are spending more time to catch a person's eye with such a COLORFUL and CUTE bag compared to America's.... really boring bags.

I've noticed that with A LOT of Japanese food products and even on hair dying kits too! Is this sort of a signature thing Japanese people do with their products and goods? What's sold in America looks sucky and half the time I don't really feel compelled to buy it over the SAME thing but in a more Japanese "jump out at you" theme.

Marketing and PR companies in each country know the population and culture and spend a lot of money researching how to package things to appeal to them. Boring packaging must be what people in the US want..

But,...
POTATO CHIPS! :D
Mmm... I ate some Cheetos at lunch today. Anyways, it seems that there are more jumpy designs in Japan it seems like, but there is also American things that are eye openers.
