Awww, ouch! Awwww.

1. This commercial gave me the warm and fuzzies.
2. Then I thought the bird was dead, and was infuriated by the emotional betrayal.
3. At the end I got the warm and fuzzies again, with a laugh for no extra charge!

Unemployment Blues

There was a period over the summer when I began reading the blogs and visiting the sites of people in the ad industry who are unemployed as a result of the economic downturn. My fascination makes no sense, because I was employed at the time (and am currently, despite being a full-time student). Anyway, reading about the woes of the advertising unemployed made me anxious and depressed for awhile! That's what made me so happy to discover The Sack: a video blog about the activities of a copywriter and art director who are, shall we say, living a life of leisure. I find the site somewhat incomprehensible, but entertaining...and perhaps the best part is that the two have joined talents to accomplish a project and fill their time with something productive and creative. Cheers, Dawson and Birchall.
