Oh Brazil, what has happened to you? If you’ve missed this story while debating the merits of healthcare reform or curing cancer, shame on you. It’s Paris Hilton, back in another crappy TV spot that for some reason has people up in arms. And not just any people – the Brazilians. I mean, if the […]

Somewhere, a copywriter wrote the line, “You’re the colon lady!” Followed by “Diarrhea, constipation, gas, bloating – that’s me!” And then his soul died a little bit.

My first job out of college was at an agency in Boise, Idaho. Yes, Boise. All my friends were going to bigger name agencies and working for free while getting coffee or writing BRC copy, while I was producing radio spots the very first week I showed up, and TV within a month. Sure, it […]

Check out this Stella Artois spot sent in from Dog & Pony Show reader from Vancouver, BC. The first thing that strikes you is that it’s light years more mature than American beer spots. There’s no sophomoric humor or cheap laughs. And no one gets hit in the nuts. It also actually has to do […]
