High Jive is using classic ads from years gone by to persuade a new audience. Aside from the ad pictured above, he’s modified VW’s “Think Small” campaign, the old Hathaway shirt ad, an old Avis ad and several others.

The Cure For Common Cultural Cluelessness
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.
