Adland - all the adnews not fit to print.
Seems like an Oscar and a few lead roles was all it took to leave actor Ben Affleck drunk with star power.
After Affleck voluntarily checked into the Malibu-based Promises rehab facility for treatment of alcohol abuse (with the help of former occupant, Charlie Sheen) , Samuel Adams beer dropped him as a celebrity pitchman.
Considering his lead role in "Pearl Harbor," he might prefer kamikazes to beer. Nevertheless, reports of Affleck's activities prior to his decision to sober up would hardly encourage one to "drink responsibly."
If the upcoming sequel to teen sex comedy, "American Pie" involves pie-humping like the original, a promo tie-in with Lifestyle condoms would seem to be a perfect fit. What's more, it could help protect millions of easily influenced teen boys from direct exposure with fruit filling. Unfortunately, the deal to air a Universal Pictures produced TV spot just went bust.
Lee Tamahori - director of new zealand spots and the fab tearjerker (I cried like a baby - just don't tell anyone) "Once were warriors" has just agreed to direct the next Bond film.
It will be shot in London. Betcha didn't see that coming!
Since I'm so pleased that Adland is back online, I thought I'd throw a little party. You are all invited over to Justine's , 101 2nd street, between 1st avenue and A, on Saturday night at 10:30. The silver backroom is ours kids. I thought Justine's would be appropriate. Yes, it's an S&M bar, what else? Come and have a drink. I might spank you.
It's weird, it's poorly implemented, but fuck it looks interesting.
I quote: "howellhenryland is an interactive virtual reality that is our integrated web presence, extranet and intranet. It won't give you the same experience as walking around our unique working environment - but it's as close as we can get in the digital world."
What the hell is it?
Though they're an e-biz flunk out, bankrupt ecampus.com wound up teaching former agency DeVito/Verdi a thing or two about dot commerce.
Dennis Publishing is suing the agency for $270,000 worth of unpaid ecampus.com ads that ran in Maxim magazine. For the agency's sake, the litigation hopefully ends here. God forbid ecampus.com should decide that a media plan that promoted its text book website in Maxim contributed to its demise.
For ad folk, "PG" refers to a style of safe, over-tested advertising popularized by Proctor & Gamble. In recent years, P&G has made pronouncements and organizational moves toward breaking this stereotype. However, according to a recent stink over fresh Old Spice deodorant spots, some think the P&G creative process is still the pits.
