Proof that advertising works: nygirlofmydreams

Adland: 

Patrick Moberg was riding the NYC subway last Sunday when he saw the girl of his dreams, but before he got a chance to talk to her, she disappeared into the crowd. Instead of walking away from his missed connection, he created a website and posted a web video:

Patrick discusses the girl of his dreams from Jakob Lodwick on Vimeo.

By Wednesday, he found her! And here's the story as told by ABC News.

    I'll be honest, when I first saw the illustration on the website I was sure it was viral advertising for something. At the very least, for his illustrations.

    I wonder if this relationship will last longer than the one where that guy tracked down the woman who did the voice recordings for the telephone company.

    Seriously, based on the speed, the action, the  "connection," the quality of it all... this smacks of a "lonelygirl15" performance. They got a couple of moments of their Andy Warhol 15, but I have never seen anything in life work this way.

     

    First think, THEN ink.

    He might end up banging his head against the wall repeating, "I should have talked to her first!"

    Maybe it's like Hugh's Gapingvoid but from a stalker. He leaves bc cards behind of the ones he follows?

     

    Or not.

    The more I think about it, the more I agree with Penpusher on this one.
