It's All Advertising

I have an illness that makes it impossible to not find parallels between advertising and everything else. This blog is a way for me to express all the weird ways I look at ads and my random new ways of thinking about them. Sometimes it’ll be smart, sometimes it’ll be stupid, and maybe some time it will change your view on everything in the world. But let's be honest. It's all advertising.

Monday, February 6


OK, we all pretty much agree that the Super Bowl ads were disappointing. So I'd like to take a look at an underlying question that most people aren't thinking about. If your client came to you and said "hey, we want a Super Bowl commercial", and they weren't known for letting you get away with crazy stuff, would you tell them "no, sorry, I don't think that your ad will be good enough"? (I might, but I'm ballsy and stupid)

BTW, you can view them here.

I wonder if good clients go bad in the face of an uber-expensive super bowl spot? Big money does that to people (and would explain the last few years's worth of safe and boring super bowl spots)
