If You’re Not A CEO, Please

And the story continues: Even George Parker likes the videos above (and what’s not to like?). Kudos to JWT, New York for a really great campaign for jetBlue. Funny as hell… But also perfect in its timing and messaging. Great casting, great production, watch it at least three times to get the nuances (that’s French […]

Visa Goes Swimming With Lee Clow

Barbara Lippert of Adweek likes the new Visa spot from TBWA. “When was the last time you went to the aquarium … on a Tuesday … with your daughter?” It’s clear we’re dealing with a new economic reality — no more jetting off on the spur of the moment to exotic places where they don’t […]

Do You Pretend To Work?

Starting this month, Lakshmi is promoting Hardee’s Bacon Western Thickburger in a commercial directed by Chris Applebaum, who memorably brought a babe and a Carl’s Jr. burger […]

Travel Bug Leaves It’s Mark

Jim Sykora, executive creative director at Moroch, the Dallas agency behind the new work for Travel Channel says, “We wanted to build more than a campaign, we wanted a platform that would permeate the network.” I think “platform” is the wrong word here, but “Travel Bug” as a “concept” and “Catch It” as a tag […]

WK/London is breaking new work for Cravendale dairy. Sam Heath, creative director at W&K says, “People don’t really think when buying milk. They just reach for the blue, green or red top. With these spots we wanted to challenge this, to engage people a little more and get them to consider Cravendale.” Share
