copyranter getting annoyed by all these reporters calling.
It's official: I'm the go-to adhole for the New York Post. In Today's edition, reporter Mandy Stadtmiller gets my take on viral advertising (story link)—in particular this billboard which has now been discovered to be for a Court TV show. For the record, I did not say I find Volvo's advertising "enjoyable" (far from it). I meant to say that the best any advertiser can hope for is that their intrusive mind pollution is entertaining and remembered and doesn't piss people off.
Look for the Post profile on the copyranter in the coming weeks.
UPDATE: For the record, I was NOT misquoted by Stadtmiller. It just came out, on paper, reading like I think Volvo's advertising is enjoyable. Which, correct quote or not, is still not true.
