Advertising Is Calling

Advertising is calling. A speech made of 30 slogans. This is beautiful in a somewhat adland kind of way. Ok, maybe beautiful isn’t the right word. But you get what I mean.

Enjoy.

To Be A Man – Part 2

To Be A Man

He is a friend to a stranger and will open his soul,

He may seem hampered and confused but is always in control,

He is taller in spirit and stronger in heart,

He will stand by you and never break apart,

He has shoulders that bare weight but never do they give way,

He is as cold as the arctic wind yet as warm as a summers day,

He will cook for his lover, his partner, his mother,

He will laugh with his friends like they were his brothers,

He can make a great wall reaching up into the sky,

His tears rarely seen but always felt at goodbyes,

He can look you up and down and figure some things out,

He will grasp his mistakes and learn from his doubts,

He is consumed by fine sight but driven with his heart,

And when you sit close comfortable and relaxed,

He will give you a cheeky grin followed by a loud fart.

To be a man.

A Beautiful Future

There are football adverts, and then there are Nike football adverts. Whether it’s the one in the airport, or the one in the cage, whether it’s that one where Ronaldinho hits the cross bar, or the ‘Next Level‘ one where you are ‘him’; NIke adverts are different. Good different. They work. They work in ways that other adverts don’t even aspire to.

They are more than just adverts. They are felt, and they are embraced. They are shared, and they are loved.

With the World Cup just around the corner, it was once again time for another NIke masterpiece. And a masterpiece is exactly what we got. Past pieces have been great, but could this be the best ever?

A beautiful piece, for the beautiful game.

I feel ashamed to have ever forgot about this little gem! A truly epic piece of ‘creativity’ and execution.

I love it, and so will you.

While you SCREAM at your woman, there’s a man wishing he could talk softly in her ear. While you HUMILIATE, OFFEND and INSULT her, there’s a man flirting with her and reminding her how wonderful she is. While you HURT your woman, there’s a man wishing he could make love to her. While you make your woman CRY there’s a man stealing smiles from her…

Post this on your wall if you’re against Domestic Violence.
