Link Haze, 9/28/07.

Good magazine takes an analytical look at the campaign stickers of the six leading candidates for President (link) (thanks for the tip, Steve Cronin)—lots of man/woman/boy/girl on the street videos, mostly debating who's worse: Young People or Old People (link)
This "blogger" dares to bash Pop-Tarts® packaging. THEY ARE FUCKING CRAZY GOOD™, BITCH. (link)
A few commercials of note: All-Bran construction worker—sublime (link); Heinz Baked Beans—will never run in America (link); and GE "Model Coal Miners"—16 tons of big agency bullshit (link) via my BFF BBDO (thanks to Alexa Sutton for the tip).
Ad creatives hate focus groups. Their b-to-b ads give us no reason to change our minds (link)
The creepiest ad icons of all time, according to AdAge readers (link)
downtown Miami has become DWNTWN, MIAMI. How 1998. (link) (thanks Dan Silverman for the tip)
Do you play paintball? If so, and you show up to do battle in one of these, your competitors should then be allowed to use real guns/ammunition/grenades (link)
And pictured (click image): Ben, a co-worker of the archeress, gets freakynasty with his favorite flavor of level vodka babe.
UPDATE: There is now ONE (1) Bacon Wristband left to give away. Got an excellent (and I mean, EXCELLENT) ad tip (preferably a photo or scan)? Email me—copyranter(at)hotmail(dot)com—and it's yours. After that, I will mail them all out.

That's some scary brand loyalty Kellogg's has worked on you. Meet you on the playground after school and sell you a case of vintage blueberry, no frosting.

Always appreciate the traffic your link hazes bring to my "blog."

I am def. not a fan of the newer flavors; I stick with the old standbys——brown-sugar cinnamon, cherry, strawberry.
