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. Ha. David, I received the same offer and immediately hit the delete button. I don’t trust any free deal especially via email. Were you requested to hype Lincoln or were you really impressed?

    • I did not get an email solicitation. Rather, I clicked on the banner ad that Lincoln presented to me on the Times website today. The banner, interestingly enough, appeared on an article about the mass exodus of people from DayTwah.

    I clicked the offer and it didn’t go through. Now, customer service at the NY Times tells me I didn’t get the email. Lincoln’s campaign was poorly executed. Are you getting your free NY Times?

    • I believe that I am getting it for free. I haven’t paid and haven’t been notified that I need to. Maybe Lincoln’s offer expired. Promotional offers typically do.
