Gymkhana? Wha?

I am literally about to cry from laughing right now. The goodness happens about 3 min into the video. Wait for it. It's totally worth it.

Best of Show Goes to ASO

A little self-congratulations to my agency, ASO, who took home a bunch o' awards at last night's Atlanta Addy Awards. Of course, no award is as important as Best of Show, which we won. Hah.

Atlanta's ad club started out as a club for creatives and is still kinda that way, so I got to hang with lots of non-media folks last night. Out of my element, but in a good way. Thanks to all for making it a fun night.

So what was this amazing entry? Some work our creative team did to save the blues. And a non-traditional video at that (whoa - it's true - nontraditional media! It's like venturing into unknown territory.). And for those waiting with bated breath, check out this link to see the top winner of the night:



Trust Me, This Show is a Keeper

This is a week late (as is the creative on their current billboard on Peachtree St - nice one, btw) and I am watching Trust Me, a new show from TNT that is all about advertising (yay!).

The characters pack more witty banter in one minute than I could in a week. Thank God for well-written shows with rhetoric I aspire to dispense.

I have never worked for a behemoth agency like RGM represents, but the interoffice squabbling is fun to watch. Makes me happy to be at a small shop. And it is cool to see the writer-art director relationship from the inside.

And let me express my surprise and happiness that Eric McCormack brings no trace of Will. I absolutely loved Will and Grace, but he is now Mason. And Mason is a pretty cool CD.

This show is an exceptional addiction until Mad Men returns! I'm jazzed.

I love his ad-man glasses. Classic but still for the cool kids.
