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.

With the right packaging...


This dude is an absolute genius. A guy named Justin Gignac is packaging and selling...wait for it...GARBAGE! That's right, he's selling the finest select pieces of NYC trash in clear plastic cases, signed and numbered, to people literally around the world. He's sold over 700 so far, at $50 a pop. It seems ridiculous to me that someone can pull this off, but I find myself wanting to buy one. What a conversation piece! You can't even be mad at him because he's cleaning up the city too. This is the best thing since pet rock. I hope this guy becomes a millionaire. Check his site out.

Hey, T, if you're intrested in the generic version, I can pick some up for you while I'm in the city next weekend.

Personally, i think it's brilliant. Perhaps, though, some could turn them into small compost boxes for trash that is abel to be broken down. For the studio dwellers of NY who don't have a backyard of their own. :)

A couple of friends of mine picked two of these up about three years ago for about $10 each.

Apparently, garbage has become more expensive in NYC.
