Garfield On Advertising (Not The Cartoon)

[via Experience Matters]

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.

    Somebody please make the bad man go away.
    When Garfield talks about connecting brands to consumers, isn’t that what advertising — well, effective advertising anyway — does?
    And if advertising, at least according to Garfield’s narrowly definition, is going the way of the dinosaur and the eight-track tape, why does he still bother to review antiquated 30-second commercials? Guess that Adage gig is just too good to give up.
    Or maybe I’m just jealous of his facial hair.
