Admonishments

I am a consumer whore, and I want to celebrate shameless product endorsements.

There are some really horrible ones:

And there can be really clever ones:

Or just ads where you have no idea what the hell is going on:

Have you guys seen any particularly memorable ads recently? Do you feel like shamelessly endorsing a product like delicious, refreshing Diet Pepsi? Personally, I enjoy Diet Pepsi more than other diet cola drinks because it's hip, and as an age 22-35 male living in an urban area, it really suits my fast-paced lifestyle. Taste the One that's Forever Young, Diet Pepsi refreshes just like you remember.

Anyway, post some interesting ads.

    Has anyone been noticing that people from our generation (yuppie age, anyway) are starting to take more powerful creative positions in ad companies? There's seems to have been a trend toward more out-of-the-box, witty and clever commercials over the last half decade ago. Whether it's the Burger King or Skittles commercials, or what have you...more serious commercials included.

    I think it's an interesting field

    I really appreciate well made campaigns, but I also despise the day to day banal shit that makes up 99% of it.

    That's because Julie Andrews is a boss.

    I temped at an ad agency for a few months, and I have to tell you that it seems like a pretty cool thing to do. Everyone who worked there was awesome. But I suspect it's a really intense field to work in - a lot of pressure involved, from what I gathered.

    So, this commercial isn't exactly awesome ground-breaking material, but I laugh every time I see it.

    Because, you know...

    As someone who had the Bee Gees stuck in her head all day yesterday and doesn't like The Sound of Music, I hear you. But you best not be hating Miss Andrews herself, because them's fightin words.
