In this week's Ad Age TV Commercials of Note, we have a man forced to watch a 7UP commercial while taking the proverbial dump. And, we also have mindless restaurant patrons imitating a guy who is choking, thinking it is the new Macarena. Weird. What will we think of next?
Martin Sheen is very forthright in his opposition to the potential war with Iraq. And that is bothering the executives at NBC who think it may hurt his show, "The West Wing".
Sheen even recorded an TV spot for anti-war group, moveon.org.
Once again, I don't think TV brass realize that the American public is intelligent enough to differentiate between fact and fiction. Sheen, and everyone else in this country, is entitled to their opinion. That should have no effect on his job of portraying ficticious characters in movies and on TV.
This week, I started a new full time job at an agency called RDW Group. I'll be busy ramping up for that so posts here will be light for this week but should pick up again shortly.
