Emerald Nuts and Nationwide Get In the Game During 3rd


About David Burn

Co-founder and editor of AdPulp. I wrote my first ad for a political candidate when I was 17 years old. She won her race and I felt the seductive power of advertising for the first time. I worked for seven agencies in five states before launching my own practice in 2009. Today, I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.


  1. David, I truly believe the days when people cared about and “kept score” as to which ads ran during the Super Bowl are over. Our fifteen minutes in the “Super Sunday” spotlight are up, and good riddance.
    I love this business and enjoy a well written and crafted spot as much as anyone, but we take this way too seriously. A week (and a couple more bombings in Iraq) from now, and nobody will remember or care.
    It’s a different world.

  2. It’s a diversion, but it’s pleasin’.
    Okay, now back to war…

  3. Ha! Now that was funnier than most of the spots this year….
