Man Pays For Wife, Scarf Gets Ad Yanked, Firebrand Replaced

rachelray_dunkin_donuts_scarf.jpg

- A lonely man at wit's end has placed an ad offering $5,000 to any woman who agrees to marry him. Desperate much?

- Choice of scarf gets Dunkin' Donuts ad yanked. Next, ad gets yanked because someone called a car black instead of "absence of color." WTF?

George Parker dukes it out with AgencySpy's new guy over the use of swear words and anonymity issues.

- With make-your-own spoof ads and a Learn How to AdSpeak, Australia's The Gruen Transfer might become what Firebrand didn't.

- A New York City cat sitter bitches about being sent a HUGE t-shirt from the Humane Society and how all these marketing pieces are just a waste of charitable donations.

I normally ignore anything that Fox News gets in a huff about, but the Dunkin Donuts story got me all kinds of fired up (I had to have my iced coffee to calm down) and forced me to share my own opinion about it. If anybody is interested in reading about and contributing to the conversation, especially you Mr. Hall, that would be greeeat. http://blog.greengrottostudios.com/?p=17 Not spamming. I just think there is more to it that we, in our space, can discuss.

Thanks

Well I cannot argue with you on that point, but you have to admit that she works as well as Bernie & Phyl ads. They're so bad that they suck you in to a black hole of awfulness and force you to buy the product. Don't ask me how they do it. Delish.
