Great Moments in Advertising

Think Different Here’s to the crazy ones. The misfits. The rebels. The troublemakers. The round pegs in the square holes. The ones who see things differently. They’re not fond of rules. And they have no respect for the status-quo. You can quote them, disagree with them, glorify or vilify them. About the only thing you can’t do is ignore them. Because they change things. They invent. They imagine. They heal. They explore. They create. They inspire. They push the human race forward.

Writing a Great Headline for Your Advertisement!

Strategy Driven

When Advertisements Blunder

Execupundit

Althouse has the Dove ad which is stunning in its failure to recognize its racial aspects. She asks, "How does an ad like this happen?" Good question.

Not a sound assumption

Brilliant or False Advertising?
