Fight Dirty

I show you this product not because I’m particularly fond of tidying up. No, I like Dirt Devil’s tagline, “Fight Dirty” alot. Whatever the sweeper’s charms, the tagline is poetry in motion.

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. Wish they’d shown that kind of imagination when I worked on that account. Our mandate was we HAD to show golden retriever puppies in every ad. Because the client said they had “equity in puppies.”
