You suck at this.

Go back to the "agency we know" and blow your O-hole with jelly and syrup.


Doin' it for the points

Kind of boring but the message rings true

was the point of that logo with the left hand serif that you're turning me into we? I'd like to see more about that. about turning the ME mentality into the We mentality.

Also, we did kinda wait quite awhile before storming those beaches. Maybe you could compare how we didn't wait at all to storm into Afghanistan or Iraq.

Wait. maybe not.

Still, Americans tend to favor the "action" route to things so it's a good appeal.

"We didn't wait for someone else to storm the beach at Normandy"?????? What the fuck are you insinuating? That America acted alone? That the allies were dragging their feet?

"We didn't wait for someone else to guarantee civil rights"???? WHATTT? It took over 200 years for America to come around.

This ad is beyond moronic.

This ad is not for those who know their history. Kind of an old school way of execution, but as scarfinati said, the message rings true.

You have to hate advertising in order to truly love it.

The meassage rings true? Give me popeye spinich, another company jumping on the green ladder. It doesn't ring true whenever anyone says it apart from the people that have been saying it for years, the ones jumping on the bandwagon now all look like schmucks. And there are some funny ones out there, petroleum companies, banks, retail stores, its insulting actually.

Strip. Strip. Strip.

im not talking about the politics of the message ringing true, rather that the point they are making comes through nicely whether you agree with their politics is your own issue.
