About

profilepic2Born with a large forehead and natural ability to develop outrageously absurd ideas, Dana Severson was immediately drawn to the advertising industry at a very early age. Growing up, he’d often get caught sipping a three-finger apple juice (disguised as cognac), smoking candy cigarettes, dressed like his favorite superhero, David Ogilvy. Fast forward a few decades, and we find Dana (with a larger forehead) getting paid to develop outrageously absurd ideas as an advertising director and downing three-shot espressos. Dana is a Adage.com contributor and is known to post random advertising concepts on Twitter. He is available for sideshow demonstrations and Bill Bernbach impersonations.

 

 

 

 

unknown-comicBlair Edwards is the latest addition to the team, with 10 years in the Real Estate Industry and counting he has seen his share of world class advertising.  A comedy writer in his spare time and some time Stand-up comedian he looks forward to sharing with you the cream of this industry.  All rumors that he is the love child of Lee Harvey Oswald and Jacqueline Kennedy Onassis are patently untrue.  Best friend and drinking buddy of Stephen Hawking, forgive him when for waxing on about quantum physics from time to time.  Every Quark is Sacred.

  1. Thank you for bringing this topic to light.
    Thank you for placing these efforts where they belong, as the lowest common denominator of the ad food chain.

  2. thank you, thank you, thank you for this blog. finally, there is a resource for viewing the most ridiculous real estate agents and their ads, all in one place.

    I have a few submissions for you.

    this dude tacks a life-size wooden cut-out of himself in a kilt to each of his lawn for sale signs. which promptly get stolen, likely by punk ass teenagers at 2 in the morning.

  3. You are so very welcome Anonymous (which is a lovely name by the way).

    The submissions are superb, thanks for bringing these to our attention.

    It’s worth mentioning that, as much as we like websites as submissions, ads would be our first choice. We believe that their talents on the internet can be seen as an extension of their real genius — advertising.

    Regardless, we appreciate your support.

  4. Joe and Mary – You know what they say, ask and you shall receive. There seems to be enough interest in the wonderful things agents are doing online that you’ve changed my mind. Keep an eye out for online nominations soon.

    Thanks for keeping your pulse on the trends in the real estate advertising market.
