Nike knows how to rock an ad...sometimes

This ad was well done (hard to believe after all the drama). The question is, "Why bother"? Nike does not need Tiger right now. Tiger needs Nike. He's undone his own success.

These ads are kinda old, I know. But they highlight the beauty and simplicity of Nike. This ad is funny, short and most of all clear in its message. Every man has had a moment like the above. If you haven't, Nike is inspiring you to create one.

Nothing is more fun, than when a brand knows its on a roll and keeps going.

This is another one you gotta love. The writers were on the money.

How can an ad like this be forgotten? If you know anything about advertisements, then you know that this ad had to get the green light from multiple people. That means that there are multiple people at Sony who need race relation training.

Now because this ad is a bit old, I am not going to sit around and break down all that is clearly wrong with it. I just wanted to take a moment and answer the question t…

E-40 Hits the Big Time in new TV Ad

E-40 has always been a giant in my heart. I'm from The Bay Area. But it has taken time for people to acclimate to his level. Now he is seen as a futuristic mogul OUTSIDE of Hip-Hop. In his latest genius move, Drive Time Credit Company uses his classic Choices and re-raps the lyrics. This one caught me off guard and I was happy surprised.
