Thanks to Taquil for posting this link to my all time favorite ad. The first time I saw this I just couldn’t stop laughing. It must be some Jungian thing I have about bears (which may explain addiction to John Irving in his early years as an author).
Anyhow, I first saw this when I was working for an internet company that specialized in streaming media. We spent lots of “totally justified” time watching film clips on the internet. One of our favorite sites was AdCritic.com where, at that time, advertisements could be watched for free. I’m not sure the site had any other purpose at that time but today it is a clearinghouse for keeping abreast of what is happening in the world of advertising and it costs money. This comes as a huge relief to me because watching all those films would take up precious blog reading time – or eating and sleeping time, who knows?
Stay tuned for a post on running – it’s coming soon. Really.
