Road Trip To Reading!

Bills Khakis Pub on the ground floor of the haberdasher’s building in Reading, PA is the kind of experiential marketing idea I can get excited about.
I love to see a brand anchored in physical space like this. That’s where real social networking can occur. And where customers and prospective customers can get a genuine feel for the company. By comparison, ads–trapped as they are inside a media vehicle–are woeful competitors.

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. OMG-
    Bill used to work with me as a copywriter way back when at Leo Burnett. I remember him selling us his pants (not literally), going from cube to cube (yes literally). A great guy. A great product.
