The Original BBDO Gangsta.

A recruitment ad for BBDO Germany. I'm not gonna lie, when I saw it I wanted to pull the race card really badly. But as it's not America....I'll let it live on it's own. I wont touch the tangent of wanting to hire gang members to roam around your agency in footballer jerseys with bats and hooligan tendencies. Animal NY provides a nice little link that compares the gangs across the pond to ours. While you check it out, I'll continue to study this ad to find a race or discrimination angle. 


no...THERE goes my original idea.

Ok...where as the last one was kinda lame. It would be pretty difficult for me to beat this. Damn it. The only thing I can think of to add off the top of my head are midgets. Damn.....

The Linkdown.

1. Mmmmm. That's some tasty guerrilla marketing. 

2. Florida is not a big fan of the NY relocation program. I must admit, when I first heard about it...I considered dressing like a homeless man for a free trip to Miami. 

3. How bored do you have to be to take time out of you schedule diss Mariah Carey? You simply have to be Eminem.

5. Damn, I wish I was a Young Republican. (I know this is late, but it's so utterly stupid...that's it must make this blog). LOL.

6. Mel Gibson still hates Jewish people. Hey...consistency is key. 

7.The Polite Umbrella. Much needed in NY.

8. My mom will be upset. She thinks the current MJ's  are beautiful. And if confronted she replies, "Well he paid enough to get them...after you spend a mill, you own it." So my question.. biology vs hard cold cash, who is more related?

9. Barack, The Barbarian.

Fashion Ads.

As utterly ridiculous as this is ad is (fashion ads in general). The major thing that gets me...is that the bear is wearing a watch.                                                                                                     What's that about?<-----:::Seinfeld:::


man oh man... im back from vacay. working for pros thoughts has its perks of extended vacay periods. ive also been very busy and ill lately. anyways this morning i was listening to this song and this is a great throwback. "they smile in your face, low down and dirty"

Glen Beck. Just remember FOX, you allowed this dude to have his own show. Who did? You did.

Skittles and Fruit by the Foot are the same?

When I originally saw this, I said "Awesome" out loud. They were really-extra weird. Then I started to wonder exactly who thier audience was. And the style was really familiar. So I hit up gmail messaging.

Me: did you have anything to do with this

Anonymous: hahah, no i did not
that was pretty bad

Me: oh...ok. just asking. it's like the skittles people got a hold of fruit by the foot

Anonymous: yeah, the ECD on the skittles campaign now works at Saatchi, who does Fruit by the Foot. Gerry Graf.

Me: ahhhhh, you are a fountain of advertising knowledge.

The other thing they taught me at portfolio school was the importance of having different styles. Rule #2 (rule #1 about babies and puppies). :::head nod::: So now there are two completely different products with similar styling...in the same catagory. What a shame.

How To Dress (if you're an artist).

(random getty image)

"Communicating an attitude of complete indifference to one's personal appearance is only achievable through a process of self-reflexive critique bordering on the obsessive. Artists who are in reality oblivious to how they dress never achieve this effect..."
—Roger White

There goes my "original" idea.

No seriously...I had my hard sell speech ready and waiting for my wife (unknown). I mean...with my other plans: the after party, Jennifer Lopez as our wedding planner and having the first/middle name of our first born be "Dashiel" so I can call him "Dash" for short. With all that, I figure dancing down the aisle would be the least of my worries....as far as selling ideas goes.

R.I.P Mexican Dog.

Gidget, the original Taco Bell dog passed away on Wednesday. And while dog deaths are always sad (I vividly remember the death up my dog, also a Chihuahua), this statement is utterly suspect:

"Gidget the Taco Bell dog was, in many ways, the Michael Jackson of the Mexican fast food-endorsing chihuahua world."

And for the record, I have never eaten at that restaurant. Ever. Yo no queiro Taco Bell.

Ad against Child Abuse...2 decades late.

"New print ad by ad agency Energy in São Paulo for CRAMI, a regional center for the care of ill-treated infants and children. The clipped newspaper article is about Michael posthumously getting revenge by leaving his father out of his will."

So, this isn't the first MJ ad that exploits his death, and it wont be the last. But Joe Jackson...I mean, this reference is a little dated, wouldn't you say? I think, the only thing worse than exploiting a dead man, is giving uneeded and unworthy spotlight to the...ahem, less talented individuals of the dead man's familly. Just my opinion.

Hot Chicks: Taraji Henson.

Taraji reminds me of this girl my best friend from highschool use to date. Except Taraji is prettier. I think I'm deeming her as hot because she is good at what she does. She could easily have been type casted or just another Gabrielle Union or (I hate to say it) Sanae Lathan. But she is going above and beyond and I have that feeling she'll never be lied to because of love again. She'll be on that Denzel Washington status.

Apparently, I have no real friends.

Cause if I did, I would NOT have gone so long (25 years), with out knowing the utter delicious goodness that is the Churro. O. M. G. dip that is some caramel......O.M.G. I feel like God is smiling on me right now as I sit here eating the sh*t out of this spanish donut! I feel like I am starting a new chapter in the book of life. I feel like, if I died today...I would be fulfilled. So eff'n delicious. 



Happy indeed.

Ladies and Gentlemen...He's Back....

The real Kool-Aid man from the early 90's (I think that was the time period)...or maybe later 80s is back. And he's not just busting through living room walls anymore (probably insurance issues). He has been resurrected with cool khaki cargo shorts and an arch Nemesis. In my opinion, I think he should fight the Six Flags dude (no flags, no fun), but I guess a giant bottle of soda will do. 

Life Lesson: Planes may be crash landing in the Hudson, the economy may have gone to sh*ts and celebrities may be dropping like flies....but it's good to see that a good idea never really dies. 

Agency: Ogilvy & Mather (who knew they were still making ads?...I kid)

Writers Block. Just Jack.

Like always, I'm on the lookout for music not in the box. And look what I dug up...a rapper with an accent. While, I wouldn't add it to my itunes (cause I tire of accents very quickly), perhaps this dude will stir something in your soul. In addition... Nice video.

Kicking Ass Requires you to be "Different."




In this horrible economy a junior (anything) cannot afford to travel the world. Especially if you are paying New York rent. *Word* But the funny thing is that the workload and stress doesn't let up. So you gotta go somewhere. I choose Pittsburgh. So that's where I'm going this weekend. I plan to buy Steelers gear, finally visit U-Pitt and go midget hunting. I also hope to come back with a new tattoo and a nose piecing...fingers crossed. 

So please excuse my absence. :::Man Down:::

Lets see how far she can go.

Babies in Ads.

You know what they say...stay clear of putting babies and puppies in your ads. It's a creative no, no. But they didnt say anything about b-boy babies, battle dancing on skates. Gold. What it has to do with water? I dunno, but look at those babies get down and I dare you to care.

Religious Persecution Color Coded.

If your on the fence about your next religion, this easy-to-read chart should a great help. 

The Way They Should've Been.

artist, James Cauty
"Pop artist James Cauty's work Splatter repurposes classic Warner Bros. and Hanna-Barbera cartoons and gives them a Sin City-style blood spatter makeover, "presenting the viewer with unrelenting acts of bloody, cartoon violence, which, in cartoon law, ultimately cannot cause fatal injury."

Because the youth today isn't thoughtlessly violent enough.

One of the Best Speeches I've ever Heard.

Damn. Great speech. But I know that this is what Al Sharpton does. He makes strong, hard points. He digs deep. He dips in and out of religious symbolism and the real world. He tells truths. He actually speaks at my home church in Westchester alot. And he always lays it down....and out of all the speeches yesterday, he laid down the facts....


We Had Him.

Beloveds, now we know that we know nothing, 
now that our bright and shining star can slip away from our fingertips
 like a puff of summer wind.

Without notice, our dear love can escape our doting embrace. 
Sing our songs among the stars and walk our dances across the face of the moon.

In the instant that Michael is gone, we know nothing. 
No clocks can tell time. 
No oceans can rush our tides 
with the abrupt absence of our treasure.

Though we are many, each of us is achingly alone, piercingly alone.

Only when we confess our confusion can 
we remember that he was a gift to us and we did have him.

He came to us from the creator, 
trailing creativity in abundance.

Despite the anguish, his life was sheathed in mother love, 
family love, and survived and did more than that.

He thrived with passion and compassion, humor and style.
 We had him whether we know who he was or did not know, 
he was ours and we were his.

We had him, beautiful, delighting our eyes.
His hat, aslant over his brow, and took a pose on his toes for all of us.
And we laughed and stomped our feet for him.

We were enchanted with his passion because he held nothing. 
He gave us all he had been given.

Today in Tokyo, beneath the Eiffel Tower, in Ghana's Black Star Square.

In Johannesburg and Pittsburgh, in Birmingham, Alabama, and Birmingham, England

We are missing Michael.

But we do know we had him, and we are the world.
-Maya Angelou

Maya Angelou wrote a poem for this man. Recited by Queen Latifah at his memorial service 7/7/09. Respect that. You have to respect that.
