What Stays in Vegas... Starts in Your Imagination

The ad campaign in which a line at the bottom of the screen reads, "What happens in Vegas, stays in Vegas," implies that Vegas is a place to break away from the constraints of normal existence and indulge your wildest fantasies without allowing people back home to know what you've done. There is a lot one can infer from this commercial.

Depending on the personality of who is watching, the notion of going beyond self imposed limits in a place where nobody knows your name can be positively alluring. I would imagine that the goal of the commercial is to attract any tourist who wants to completely cut loose so that the traveler will end up spending more money while on vacation at this adult theme park. The commercial purposely leaves the viewer to come up with his/her own conclusions about what might actually happen.

Ironically, while this commercial might seem risque, behavioral expectations in many circles no longer include keeping particular personal preferences private. Though there are people who decline getting mixed up in situations which might in the long run cast a negative light on their character, many others see as a larger challenge forcing society to accept any and all deviances from what used to be considered the norm. Their goal is to ensure that there is no longer a universally recognized modicum of behavior to be followed in certain situations or the expectation of deference to those who by age or stature should command respect.
