So, before we get to today’s post, let’s correct something in my last post. Apparently, my friend who was vacationing didn’t hear about the ATL flooding from a the ticket agent at the airport. One of her friends actually did let her know what was going on. But, I think it was still after she’d talked to three of her friends before hand.
Today, I’m introducing a new segment called Adventures in Advertising. Now, this is not to be confused with Adventures in Online Dating, which granted, sounds similar (and is way more hilarious!). In fact, I may have been inspired, or too lazy to come up with a more clever title, but it’ll due for now. Here’s what you’ll get hopefully every Friday:
-Advertising – print, online, ambient, outdoor, guerilla, direct mail, anything that’s tickled my fancy and I thought you should know about.
-A chance to offer your opinion of the postings via the comments.
-A chance to submit advertising you think I should know about. I’m always on the look out for good stuff.
So, let’s get it started with Jack and Gordo: the new spokespeople (spokesvegetables? spokesfruit?) for Caribou Coffee’s Fall Flavors. I love these! The humor is a perfect combination of dry wit and visual slapstick. The simple illustration and the deadpan intro, while entertaining, only further support the hilarity that ensues. Enjoy!
