On my way into work every morning I hear this radio spot for MGD at least once. So over the past 3 or 4 months I’ve probably heard it 100 times… and I still can’t decide if it’s a joke or not. As music, it’s produced quite well with no hints of irony. So I’d […]


This news made me sad. From the AdWeek.com real time blogging at Cannes: “No work was submitted for Budweiser’s “Real Men of Genius,” from DDB Chicago, which is perhaps Radio’s most awarded campaign ever.” In memory of the greatest radio campaign in history, I’m going to pour out a little Bud Lite in the dirt […]
