Don’t Date Dexter

I see a lot of annoying commercials. We all do. But have you seen this commercial? I find it highly annoying.

“I make sure I know, before I date.”

Sorry, but a computer background check can’t tell you if the person you’re about to go out with is a good person or not.

“No stranger comes around my growing family, without a background check.”

Puh leeze.



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. Today—after working for seven agencies in five states—I am head of brand strategy and creative at Bonehook in Portland, Oregon.
