  • Did Chevrolet Have to Make America Cry With Its New Christmas Ad?

    I am not sure who told Chevrolet that what we really needed this Christmas was to ugly cry over an ad they produced for the holidays, but whoever it was needs to go sit in the corner and think about what they’ve done. You may have seen the shortened version of this ad, titled “Holiday Ride,” on TV. But you don’t get the full emotional impact without seeing the extended four-minute version, which is a tear-jerker and hit me harder than listening to my child ask me why Mufasa wasn’t waking up.

    U.K. Guardian ^ | 7/25/2021 | Staff
    Two white male creative directors at a top London advertising agency have won a sex discrimination claim after a female director vowed to “obliterate” its Mad Men reputation of being full of straight, white men. Chas Bayfield and Dave Jenner, both in their 50s and renowned creative directors at the J Walter Thompson (JWT) agency, were among five men axed from the agency, which is part of WPP, because bosses “urgently” wanted to address its poor gender pay gap, a tribunal court ruled. The men were dismissed in November 2018, shortly after the firm revealed a median gender pay gap...
  • Glock 43X Black: Best Self-Defense Gun For Concealed Carry?

    19FortyFive ^ | 4/21/2021 | Caleb Larson
    Glock’s Slimlines offer shooters a thinner pistol frame, ideal for shooters with smaller hands or for situations when concealment is a must. This is achieved by using a thinner, 10-round standard magazine. Although a 10-round magazine certainly offers a lower capacity than some of Glock’s standard pistol sizes, it is nearly unparalleled for a subcompact pistol size. It is worth mentioning too that the 43X is chambered in 9x19mm. Although this is by no means the most powerful handgun cartridge on the market, combined with the 43X’s 10-round magazine capacity, it’s not a bad choice at all.

    Hornady's low drag, expanding bullet 'delivers accuracy both at the bench and in the hunting fields.'The rain had just subsided, though the streams were too swollen to cross. In spite of the fact that temperatures had risen significantly – the previous morning was in the low single digits – the runoff created a natural barrier between us and the mule deer buck we had just glassed on the hillside at over 1,000 yards. So, with Plan A foiled, we regrouped and planted the seeds of what would become Plan B: glass the innumerable coulees, gullies and canyons in a frantic...

Photo: Weibo Photos for Valentino showing Japanese model Koki walking in high heels on a traditional obi kimono belt, and wearing shoes inside, have whipped up a storm of social media criticism amid accusations the luxury Italian fashion house was “trampling on” Japanese culture.

The 34-year-old actress, who plays AT&T saleswoman "Lily Adams" in the media company's advertisements and who has acted in television shows like This Is Us and Days of Our Lives, tweeted on March 20: "Been getting a lot of 'Why are they placing her body like that in those ads?' Well, I direct the ads. I place myself like that. And it’s because of the thousands of unwelcome comments I receive about my...

    I read that Alphabet(Google) gets about 52% of Internet advertising revenue and Facebook about 28%. Such percentages, if so, are bad news to newspapers and other publishers. What I propose is that newspapers and other publishers build the ability to bypass the Internet giants and keep almost all the ad revenue that their hard work makes possible. This means directly gathering information on what their readers wish to buy. In return for a reader occasionally telling their newspaper what ads they would most like to see, the reader would be able to get to read articles, perhaps say five articles...
  • Conservative Coalition Launches Multimillion Dollar Ad Blitz to Expose Biden’s ‘Unity’ Farce

    A coalition of three conservative groups launched a multimillion dollar ad campaign to expose to America why President Joe Biden’s inaugural call for “unity” was a leftist joke. The Judicial Crisis Network (JCN), Heritage Action for America and Americans for Public Trust released three ads revealing Biden’s gaslighting on “unity.” That theoretical call was undercut by the extreme liberal agenda of his policy and personnel choices. Politico reported that one of the ads highlight “the role ‘dark money’ played in electing Biden as well as shaping his Cabinet and policies.” The liberal outlet described the campaign as “biting.”

    A SWAT Officer puts Vortex's 1×8 Low Variable Power Optic through its Paces at Two-Day Carbine Class. Holographic optics have come a long way in a very short time. They went mainstream in the late 1990s, and by the early 2000s were extremely popular with the military, law enforcement and civilian shooters. In the beginning there were a few major brands: Aimpoint, EO Tech, Trijicon. But the Global War on Terrorism turned holographic optics from “nice to have” into “must have,” as American troops were routinely outshooting their opponents armed primarily with iron sight weapons. In the field of magnified...

    In a generally weak year for Super Bowl commercials, Jeep’s stood out for being particularly obnoxious and tone-deaf. Called “The Middle,” left-wing political activist and world-famous singer Bruce Springsteen narrated and starred in the ad about how the country has been divided, but now it has a bright future as the “ReUnited States of America.” While advertisements that appeal to virtues in order to increase sales and profits can work — see Toyota’s beautiful ad about the joy in adopting a child with special needs — this one fell flat and faced mockery and opposition from many viewers.

  • Advertisers Expected to Tackle Serious Issues in Super Bowl Spots (from Dec; now, they've backed off...because they are on the run)

    Most Super Bowl commercials take a lighthearted approach, with cute kids, funny dogs, talking babies. Think of the adorable, pint-sized Darth Vader using the “force” to start up his dad’s Volkswagen Passat in 2011. Or two cute Dalmatian pups separated at birth for a Budweiser spot in 1999. But this February, sports marketing experts predict CBS Sports’ telecast of Super Bowl LV will feature more serious advertising messages that tackle topics like racial justice, white privilege, and the deadly COVID-19 pandemic. Nationwide protests inspired by the death of George Floyd at the hands of Minneapolis police and the loss of...

    NEW YORK (AP) — For the first time since 1983, when Anheuser-Busch used all of its ad time to introduce a beer called Bud Light, the beer giant isn’t advertising its iconic Budweiser brand during the Super Bowl. Instead, it’s donating the money it would have spent on the ad to coronavirus vaccination awareness efforts. Anheuser-Busch still has four minutes of advertising during the game for its other brands including Bud Light, Bud Light Seltzer Lemonade, Michelob Ultra and Michelob Ultra Organic Seltzer. Those are some of its hottest sellers, particularly among younger viewers. But the decision to not do...

    In short, the organic industry knows that unless they can effectively demonize conventionally grown produce by creating a consumer misconception of superior safety and health of organics, using blatantly false and deceptive marketing methods, then the foundation of the whole organic food industry and its ability to enhance sales would be impossible. Consumers would simply be unable to justify the additional cost of the produce or products based upon the facts. Over the next few weeks, we will consider organic vs. conventional food adapted from The Myths of Nutrition Science. We will consider five typical consumer misconceptions, which leads them...
