Quirky Brits…


I kind of like this spot for Richmond Sausages, but not as much as I like AdLand Suit’s response to it.

Richmond make almost-sausages for Bastards that used not to be Bastards and would like to be ineffectual Not-Bastards again.
And so it is with great pleasure that I invite everybody involved in making both this ad and Richmond kinda-sausages to be the inaugural members of my Bastards Of Advertising Hall Of Bastardry. You are all Bastards.

Here’s another spot from across the pond, posted by the same YouTube user.

About David Burn

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. After working for seven agencies in five states and freelancing for several more, I ventured out on my own in 2009. Today, as head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon, I'm focused on providing effective integrated marketing solutions to mid-market clients.

  1. “Bastards that used not to be Bastards and would like to be ineffectual Not-Bastards again”…I just snorted wine thru my nose. Great line…and yeah, nice little spot.

  2. The Richmond sausage ad is an almost exact replica of the scene in Ratatouille…
