Lies Well Disguised, #31.

This week on Gawker, I took a brief look at advertising awards show season (link). I've judged a few shows over the years—and killed everything that was put in front of me. One time, a One Show administrator even took me aside and told me that I HAD to have liked something I'd seen. She was wrong. For previous Lies Well Disguised columns, enter those three words up in my search window.

i should have known something was up by the run on short hoses, which these guys use to blow smoke up their own asses.

the keller quote is just a strung together bunch of buzz words that's spewed up like the stuff flies regurgitate on their food. 99% of advertising is bad including the "boundary pushing" and "challenging" work. what about good design people? remember that? let's try and at least get the basics covered before you wank all over a campaign.

but, i'm not bitter.

The VW ad has the shock effect of making you want to run out and buy the biggest SUV you can find; not exactly what they had in mind.
