The Real Mr. and Mrs. Spears

lamar billboardSo, Mr. and Mrs. Spears were over the other night for dinner (yeah, I wish … let’s just pretend for now) and we began talking about high-end ad design and as luck would have it, they just happened to know a thing or two about that. From the looks of it, I’d say they’re right on the money. Let me just take a moment of your time to point out a few of the subtle add-ons that separate the true admen from the common folk:

  • Look closely and you’ll notice that Andrea and Greg are sporting a soft outer glow. This effective little piece of trickery is what us industry folks like to call the eye orgasm. Well executed team Spears!
  • Alright, I’ve got a challenge for you: try to forget their last name. Can’t do it, can you? That’s because these mavens went literal on you. That’s right, they threw the spear right at you. Ok … they didn’t throw it per se, but they did aim straight for our subconscious and hit the bullseye.
  • And finally, just when you thought that chivalry was dead, the Spears remind us that there still is some human decency left in this world. You open doors for us, and we’ll open our hearts to you. MuWah!

Well, team Spears, you did it. Gold it is. Just so you know, the dinner offer is always on the table.

A smile is worth …


When you stumble across an ad as well executed as this one, it’s easy to just start passing out platinum nominations. So in resisting our natural temptation, we took a step back and checked in with our resident Gelotology expert. And … as we had hoped, Chet’s legit! It turns out that we are all born with 18 different kinds of smiles, which we use in a variety of different situations. Who would’ve guessed it?

And, here’s another fun fact for you: smiling releases endorphins that make you feel better. We’re feeling pretty good Chet, and so should you. You just got yourself a shiny new platinum nomination and (drum roll please) a ½ hour session with the folks at Glamour Shots.

Chet, when have a moment, zip us over a snapshot of those pearly whites with your new nomination in hand.
