Love Penguins

I don't drink beer. But I like Guinness for all of their cool spots, and for my favorite spot ever.
And I love penguins.

He did it again

Russell wrote this great post (as usual) about the future of Planning. The best part for me is about finding someone else to hate instead of Milward Brown. Well, we have to blame someone right?

Don't waste the song

Few days ago I wrote in the portuguese version of this blog (and was too lazy to translate to this one) about the ads that use huge/classic songs or artists and the lack of emotion in most of these ads. For me some examples are Levis spot with the song Walk The Line, the new Apple spot with Bob Dylan and the Nike one below. I know it is part of the game, this is advertising and blablabla, but I just feel sad when I see an ad transforming a huge simbol or wonderful song in just an ad. Not adding anything to it...
The spot below was mentioned by a friend as an example of ad that he thinks doesn't "waste" the song.

Hurts me

Soon after I mentioned it as one of my favourites songs ever, Nike got it.
I won't talk again about the lack of emotion in recent advertising that uses great songs or artists. I better get use to it.
