I love this
I never will, in my entire life, celebrate the victory of death of another human being but this GIF……
I’m trying to improve my penmanship while re-reading Husserl’s concept of phenomenology.
Both are proving more difficult than they have any right to be.
I totally can’t stand this spot and unlike Nick below, it didn’t get me to the website. i tend to despise blatant metaphors like that operating in a way that feels condescending and vapid all at the same time. With better creative, even your biker target can FEEL the prison insight & resulting call-to-action to customize your own bike.
PAGING Kyle & John & Sara & Jill & everyone that I’ve had the conversation about crowdsourcing with — why it’s so often problematic. I’d obviously need to dig deeper here to determine the origin of the concept etc but it feels like a likely result of unfocused creative / planning just bubbling up as a folk-approved story line. DISLIKE.
Victors and Spoils’ first crowdsourced spot for Harley-Davidson.
I feel like I’ve seen this concept before, but with hamsters in wheels instead of people in cages…
The ending doesn’t really fit, but the spot did get me to Harley’s website to customize one of my own.
I totally agree. This spot is shitty. Wasn’t the promise of crowdsourcing a brand new world of fresh ideas that could never have come from ‘traditional’ sources?
In an interview with Forbes about new agency models, etc… Jon Bond said “if you just want to get the best creative you can, fast, for the best price—[crowdsourcing is] a great way to do it.”
Victors & Spoils has some pretty talented creatives and strategists on their payroll, but if this—a watered-down, un-engaging imitation of Apple’s ‘1984’—is the “best,” I’m pretty disappointed.
Salmon is the most bipartisan fish. It lives in salt water and fresh water.
1. A vague and gnawing pang of anxiety centered around an IM window that has lulled.
2. A sudden and irrational rage in response to reading an ‘@-reply’ on Twitter.
3. The state of being ‘installed’ at a computer or laptop for an extended period of time without purpose, characterized by a blurry, formless anxiety undercut with something hard like desperation.
4. The car collision of appetite and discomfort one feels simultaneously when using the internet to seek and consume images or information that may be considered unseemly or inappropriate.
5. The sense of fatigue and disconnect one experiences after emitting a massive stream of content only to hit some kind of ‘wall’ and forget and/or abandon the entire thing.
