Oh, man, have I seen some awful ads in my life. Some of them, when you factor in the amount of money that was spent on them, make me want to cry. Spelling errors, unintended innuendo, use of clip-art that’s become a rather rude and offensive internet meme. It’s all generally a sign that the advertiser decided to skip a step in the ad design process and that step could be as easy as running spell check, knowing your internet memes or proof-reading what you thought was pure linguistic genius.
Ads are like slow-smoked brisket. You can’t rush it, you can’t cut corners and you can’t skip a step or what you’ll end up with is a lump of leather that tastes like that time you dropped your marshmallow in the fire on that camping trip, remember? And you picked it up and ate it anyway, all covered in ash and what must have been a half burnt pine needle? Yeah. You don’t want your ad to leave its audience tasting burnt pine. I mean, especially if you’re like, Taco Bell or something, am I right?
Of course, I can also layout your genius inspiration as well. I come up with ideas, but I also listen to ideas. Except during Cleveland Browns games. Then it’s just straight Dawg Pound talk.
I feel an idea coming on. It could be yours, now would be a great time to call 778-938-1437
