Link Haze, 3/28/08.

• Disney (see Goofy [Pluto] with bone in mouth, right) gets caught advertising on sleazy sites by the Drunken Stepfather. His commentary on the matter is spot-on and quite humorous. (link)
• An ad copywriter is running for president. I have nothing to add. (link)
• Speaking of copywriting, here's how to write copy, written by the UK copywriter Simon "Scamp" Veksner. (link)
• Wrestlemania "wrestlers" have their nipples removed on billboards. (link)
• Speaking of stupid billboards, here's a distractingly stupid one warning us against driving distractions. Amazing. (link)
• Remember my post about the horrid copy on a bourbon ad? Well, the GLBT version of the same ad features equally bad verbiage. (link)
• Jeremy Piven's goofy, forced model pose for his Johnston & Murphy ads looks sort of like a combo Napoleon/Jack Benny. (link)
• Dr. Pepper is going to give every single American a free can of soda if Axl Rose releases Chinese Democracy in 2008. This makes one wonder if they had this idea before or after the start of the recent deadly riots in Tibet. (link)
• Darling pet monkey: $18.95. (link)
• French Axe spot in a dentist's office. (link)
• A good viral ad movement? The Orange Underground for Cheetos. (link)
• Williamsburg Brooklyn photo du jour: Keep Off Flowers. Um... (link)
• Hand-shaped dildo for fisting. (link)
• Texas man buys Illinois-shaped corn flake on eBay for $1,350. (link)

That Kissing for Prez link is so vapid. Typical "creative". A vanity site acting all important while being too cool to actually say anything meaningful. I'm sure someone, somewhere thinks it's groundbreaking.

Why is "wrestlers" in quotes? Are they something other than wrestlers because of the professional nature of it all?

That's Pluto, not Goofy. But it's really not fair that both are dogs yet are treated differently.

They're hit or miss but that Axe spot is my new favorite. Those balls. Wow. Just, wow. Gotta love the French.
