Ride A Dolphin To Your Dream Job In Lala Land

Vinny “Whazzup?” Warren named Career Builder’s spot best of show last night. Then, in an exchange with Dr. Wolk on the subjective nature of judging, Warren wisely adds “…well the thing is that we’re really just judging entertainment really. so it’s not that surprising. plus, it’s a chemical reaction in a way. part of it is the crowd reaction to what you all see. i know it was with me.”
The chemical reaction I had last night upon seeing the cute little bear punched in the head was “what sophomoric crap is this?” But I recognize that’s me, the consumer, speaking. Me the ad guy, playing Monday morning Ad Back, I can see it differently. I can see the humor in people’s pain. Hold it. I take that back.



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.
