Indeed. Using a woman as an object as they are so bluntly doing here hardly advances anyone's cause.

Though men may, in fact, rampage their way to the store, will they really buy women's jeans for themselves? OK, maybe for their girlfriends:-)

This list mirrors exactly my feelings and experiences I have had for years. It's amazing and unfortunate how things never change. I'd disagree (well, more like comment on) point 4. You want the actual commercial because that's what Adland/Commercial Archive is all about. Others may not want to host commercial but simply link to them (or use the embed code) where ever they may reside on the web.

The downside of linking or using embed code, of course, is that you have no control over the lifespan of the video. That would be a very bad thing for Commercial Archive since you have paying customers who expect to be able to find and view stuff. With other sites/blogs/etc, a link or an embed might be fine. Especially since many may not have hosting horsepower aking to Commercial Archive.

Personally, I'll take either. I'll host some and link to others. I don't really have a preference. I suppose it's personal preference thing.

But you are right about urging a PR person to learn the preferences of an individual site. Commercial Archive is a site that hosts commercials. Knowing this, a PR person should realize you want the actual file and not the link.

Great list!

Part of above comment. After agency exec says, "I can't take a shit for $5,000," client shoots back, "What does TFA (name of agency) stand for, the three fuckin assholes? (three agencu execs were present)"

Agency makes big presentation to supposedly big client. At the end of presentation, client says, "I only have $5,000." To which agency exec responds, "I can't take a shit for $5,000."
