AdWeek's Coming! Cast Your Vote for Best Slogan and Icon


Advertising Week -- which we're sponsoring -- fast approaches. With that in mind, the country's top advertising icons and slogans are going to be competing for a spot in the Madison Avenue Advertising Walk of Fame.

Dude. This is exciting. Or it should be if you have a soul.

Entrants include the Keebler Elves, The Geico Caveman and Gecko, and McGruff the Crime Dog, which we haven't seen since we were about 8. And slogans in the running include "Got Milk?" and "Just Do It."

"It is every brand's dream that their campaign icon or slogan will take off and become a fixture in American culture," gushes Ron Berger, chairman of Ad Week.

That's, like, really sweet.

If so inclined, cast your vote here. Voting started yesterday and will last until September 25th. Winners are announced the day after.

I would counter-posit that to be "excited" about this event would mean that you are in fact completely soulless.

I guess it would depend on one's definition of soul. For example, I completely lack the blues definition of soul, so that would make you correct.

But if you're referring to the souls I've bartered from people and keep in a jar by my bed, your argument doesn't stand up - unless the people who have sold me their souls are in fact very excited about this event. Which they certainly may be.

That I actually buy and sell souls may exempt me from this conversation, meaning that my excitement may in fact be moot.
