Maverick, Maverick, Maverick

According to The Denver Egotist, San Francisco ad legends, Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein, paid to produce the above spot and several more that are running on YouTube. While the spots make their point, they lack the Goody touch, IMO.
For more on the origins and meaning of word “maverick” see my Burnin’ post from yesterday.
[UPDATE] This spot works a bit better for me.

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. the truth says:

    funny how a ton of agencies are pushing a black candidate for president when some of them have no or very few blacks in their very own agencies.– hypocrites.

  2. true, perhaps, but they also have about as many 72-year-old white guys. ageist, racist, sexist … agencies are a very isty lot, aren’t they?
