Hot New Geekwear From NeoNerd

from Tim Nudd of Adweek: After getting canned on The Apprentice, Danny Kastner wrote a song called “15 Minutes of Fame.” “Who is that knockin’ at your door?/Oh my lord, it must be them, the paparazzi/Who else could it possibly be?” he sings. It’s pure Kastner: a clueless yet charming mix of self-love and self-promotion, tempered by hippyish earnestness. It’s almost worth visiting just to hear it.
This leisure suit can be yours for a mere $599
We couldn’t resist asking if Kastner has plans for an album or a line of leisure clothing. Naturally, both are in the works. “I make a lot of my clothes,” he says. “So I think I’m gonna do a deal and license that. And I’ve always been on the fringes of music success. The stuff on the show, that’s just the corny stuff–I do serious stuff as well.”

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. This guy is exactly the kind of “creative” that gives advertising a bad name. He obviously thinks dressing oddly and doing a Michael Moore lookalike thing works, but Donald Trump didn’t buy his act. No one else should either. Creative is obviously only a word he uses.

  2. Michael Moore lookalike? I don’t get it. I’ve sure as hell never seen Mr. Moore in a leisure suit.
    As for Kastner’s creative ability, I’d need to see his work first.
