Adland joins the Starbucks Digital Network

Starbucks Digital Network continues to announce new content providers, this time it's Adland.tv. The 15 year-old site is the world's best online collection of advertising from around the globe and the world's largest Super Bowl archive.

Adland.tv's founder Åsk Wappling said, "I was shocked that they approached me. But I'm really thrilled Starbucks has decided our content is on par with the likes of The Economist and ESPN. We're a site built by adgrunts, for adgrunts, and being a part of this network just goes to show how advertising is really more than just marketing, but a part of culture. Plus, most creative types I know are constantly caffeinated, so it's a perfect match."

(London) Adland according to 4chan

Yeah hey, I was just out fraternizing with the punters, eerr, consumers, and it turns out they think we're a bunch of overpaid overhyped uncreative twats as usual. Everything is back to normal then. Damn.

In adland, the Cliché family never changes

In 1965 or so, Campbell Mithun in Minneapolis created while MPO Productions produced this little clip, mocking the Cliché family. It's called "The Cliche Family in Television Land" and was screened at an awards show, though I am unsure which one. In it we find all the usual cliché members of the standard advertising family and learn that creatives mocked their own job as much back then as they do now. :)

That Verizon "Can you hear me now" idea is as old as Chaplin films

Can you hear me now? Good.

Either this woman is a "Time Traveler" with cell phone spotted in this 1928 Charlie Chaplin flick, yapping about how marvelous the roaring twenties are.. Or she might be working for Verizon and just testing the future (and past) cellphone network they're building now.

Via Geekologie who also have another film with our mystery lady and a chat-up from George Clarke who watches way too many films who spotted it.

This is almost as good as what the fuck is my social media strategy, but it needs moar f-bombs.
