I know what you're saying Leslie. But culturally? Yeah. More red than blue.

Hey everyone. Wow this is fun. Can I play? Loved the orphanage thing, by the way. Wasn't there something about a transvestite? Brilliant. Look, guys, here's the deal. There is no intern. There's nothing canned, not even a tad. There's nothing odd going on. I think what we have here is an issue of credibility. You guys don't believe that people could actually feel that way about a spot. You roll your eyes. You want to gag. That's cool. I understand that. I do. But America is a big country. And as we surely know by now, there is at the present time a lot more red sensibilities than there than are blue. As for Piers, I love the man. And he makes a good point. We need to get more prolific and diverse. We're working on that. We will solve that. That said, though, I think there's more to a successful blog than how many posts you manage to get up in a day. But hey, what do I know.

Love Crispin. Love what they're doing to change this business. But I can't agree with the Kelly judges on this years Grand Prize winner. Yeah, it's fun. Cool use of media. But this is the best print campaign done in the last year? Wow.

Sorry. It was a joke. Meant to be anyway.

"Tell it to the One Club". You know. As in, I didn't do the thing. The One Club did. So if you think it's lame, why tell me?

So can I. And that's pretty sad. This isn't social responsibility. This is social exploitation. Yeah, no question, it'll probably work. But should it?

Successful the Capital One campaign mighbt have been, but creatively I personally never thought much of it. The David Spade stuff, maybe. But the Huns? Not cool.,

Hey, here's an idea. Flash forward 5 or 10 years. Near future. People are so saturated with all the virally, bzzzagenty, who-knows-whoto-trust-anymore stuff, they actually long for the days when ads were just ads.
