Ben Popken at the Consumerist has a recording of a rather peeved Jimmy Dean consumer who is ticked off by the sausage shrinkage from 16 oz to 12, at the same price. It doesn't get full of cursewords until the very end of the call, where the man thinks he has hung up and goes to cuss Jimmy Dean out to his family, who all agree that 12 oz sausage ain't gonna feed 600 pound of men.

Lets see how Jimmy Dean responds to this one. Their customers have spoken, and they say "... I wanna eat, goddammit."

We brought the idea of social connectivity and the sense of community that Halogen is trying to build to the existing graphic elements.”

HarperCollins set out to reconnect Toronto subway travelers to the experience of storytelling through the written word with a campaign that harnessed the power of sound to promote notable titles.
The effort, developed by Toronto-based Dentsu Canada, incorporated four subway ads – two on the Bloor- Danforth subway line and two on the Yonge – University line – that each featured a striking image and an audio jack where commuters can plug in their headphones and listen to a brief excerpt from a book.
The narration concludes with the name of the book, a plot description and the tagline: “HarperCollins. We tell the world’s greatest stories.”
