Staten Island needs to be distilled, like, five times by itself.
A Pox On You. Vox, a vodka from the fucking Netherlands, has had this painted building poster (click image) up for months and months on Houston St. It has—s l o w l y—wormed its way into my crawl (hillbilly phrase). Here's the scenario: Client buys space. Agency is challenged to come up with a "New York" execution. Writers/art directors scratch heads/balls/cooters/butts for a week. This is what you end up with: Distilled Advertising that's been through the wringer and reads like it. Pure pollution.
