  3. Planning in other words, was (and at its best continues to be) about going to the root of the matter.  It was about asking questions – the obvious yet unasked, the awkward, the penetrating, the fresh and unexpected. It appreciated the fundamental truth that creativity begins with questioning.

  5. What do we all share?

    I keep banging on about looking for things that we all have in common, for shared emotions and experiences when we make ads, rather than highly microscopic nuance for your clever niche.

    That’s what big brands are built on. Everyone can Share a Coke and Just Do It and Think Different.

    And everyone fraking hates getting stuck behind ‘an unusual huddle of slow walkers’ when they’re on a mission.

    It’s also nice to see a Cold & Flu ad that isn’t just about mums being able to make their kid’s lunch despite having an unusually red nose and grey face.

  9. The proximity to reality of this terrifies me

    I have had the displeasure many times of being the “expert in the room” and this is spot on.

    Reminds me of the Dilbert “The Knack” sketch:


    In case you missed it, here’s a funny video that’s sadly close to the reality of corporate life. Many thanks to Nathan Galbraith for the link!

    Sometimes you just can’t get rid of a bomb

    I’ve been saying this all along. Vindication is mine.

    in case people have never seen this piece of quality advertising

    here we have the new zealand accent in it’s natural habitat

    eating some ghost chups, bru

    I wonder if this ad appeals anyone other than kiwi’s

    It appeals to Aussies Karen. It appeals to Aussies.

  19. Us Airways: A little perspective

    I’m sure you’re all aware of the US Airways Twitter debacle by now.

    If not, you can read about it on Vice here: vice.com/en_au/read/us-airways-tweeted-porn

    I think this is great for agencies. You should all do what I just did: Print a copy out and carry it with you everywhere. When people are all “What a disaster, we fucked up” then you can hold it up and say “Could have been worse.”
