Slow day for blogging. The Ireland bail-out story is the big news, but I will only become interested in that discussion when it takes on “young micks buying Guinness with their bail-out dollars” overtones.
Thus, all I have is a bunch of questions about advertisements:
- Is the guy in that Acura chestnut roaster ad blatantly ripping off Chris Walken? link
- Is that BMW ad explicitly aimed at gay automobile consumers or is it trying to fly under the radar? (If the latter, it’s not doing a very good job.)
- Why “Yesterday” for the big iTunes Beatles ad? That might be the worst Beatles song. “Revolution” seems like a no brainer to me here, even if it’s been done before. How about “I’m Looking Through You” with some young hipster looking at his retina display or whatever they call it? “And Your Bird Can Sing” with that bird-call app my nature freak family loves? Work with me here.
