"Sorry sir, white cars only." The attendant at the gate was fat and eating a banana. "But this car is silver, that's kind of like white." the man in the silver Datsun whined. The rotund beast of a man walked around the silver car, tapping on the windshield and kicking only the left rear tire. "If you park it at the back of the lot, you'll be fine." Tubby returned to his guard booth and raised the orange and white arm. "We shall park closer one day!" the man in the car shouted as he sped angrily to the back of the lot. When he got there, he realized it wasn't all that bad as it was directly outside the entrance to the food court, which pleased him because he was hungry. Hungry like a fox.

Are you just cutting and pasting segments from a novel you're writing? If so, well done. If not, you should be.

The best copy I've seen on this site comes from the comments page and you seem to be the heir to the blog-literary-throne now that John Heubert II has departed.

Unless of course you and he, are in fact one in the same...

Isn't a failed screenplay enough? No, all I am doing is looking at ads that I don't like or don't get and writing something inspired by that ad. I like it better than talking about how the ad sucks. This ad made me think of looking down on a parking lot full of only white cars. I also seem to have some sort of disturbing obsession with the ocean, Haitians, my mother and death. Thanks for the compliment.

Oh, and I am not J H II. I am the hero with a thousand faces.

Hi joseph,
i agree completely agree with the others who say that you comments are always better than the ad itself... bizzarre sometimes but quite imaginitive..... :)

What you end up doing through this bizarre dedication to fulfil some kind of creative expressive drive, is to in fact write something far better than the ad itself. Ironic no?

Amazing that you take inspiration from crappiness.

Stay obsessed.

i like this campaign. but the layout is a bit too silent for this brand. it'll be more impact if it is double page ad and make the window look more like tv screen. cheers!
