    New shit come to light...from marketing, tech, PLOP culture & life sprinkled with Lebowski dust straight out a Folger's tin.... from some poncy dude with a finger on his chin.

    Burger King Proud Whopper

    Oh Burger King, I'll have it your way. 

    'Spoof' Grey Poupon ad

    Apparently Kraft did not 'produce or approve this video.' But that's ok, these things can sometimes work in your favour. Pffft.

    Probably the most fun Brazil World Cup ad

    Ok, so it's by McDonald's.  But that doesn't take away any of the sheer delight & joy in this little number. Made by my friend @Curlybun_ of DDB Chicago.  Enjoy.

    The Secret of Life and Love, According to Ray Bradbury (1968)

    Very nice perspective on life and love.  "We love only by doing, and knowing."

    David Abbott: I love bookshops

    I spent 5 of the best years of my agency life at one of the best ad agencies in the world, Abbott Mead Vickers/BBDO, very much indebted to this man, David Abbott, who the agency world lost this past weekend.  I never knew the man, I wish I'd met him.  He'd retired from the agency about 10 years before I'd joined.  So I wished I'd actually delved more into his career. 

    So hunted around and found this delightful video of David talking about independent bookshops which gives a little inkling about the kind of human being he was and perhaps the type of humanity that influenced the culture at AMV that I (and so many others) have had the wonderful pleasure of being a part of. 

    "Damned is the man who abandons himself."

    Having worked with Crisis, the homeless charity, for about 11 years....this is probably one of the loveliest things I've seen recently.  Woman finds a homeless man who writes...and changes his life.  And it's so beautifully told.
