For That Ads: Listen to McCann Erickson

These aren’t just good ads. They’re good ads about advertising, which is both disgusting and even better.

Godless, pinko version after the jump. (Thanks, ninnx!)

    Ah, nothing more solipsistic than advertising about advertising.

    If you really think about it, the Jesus one doesn’t make ANY sense. It might be superficialy funny, especially to a non-Christian, but it’s really dumb.

    Fidel, however, is fantastic.

    “Couldn’t we just go with some new-age circle-of-life thing and skip the crucifixion?”

    The Jesus one I think is funny, but was a rather sophomoric effort. They’re determining what would be his symbol that people would identify him by. Fidel’s is his cigar, and Jesus is his cross. Suggesting a circle instead of a cross is a bit more light-hearted, but I would have preferred to see them suggesting a goat’s skull or a catholic priest with a little boy beside him.

    I kind of like the fact that a square is one of the options…I mean a frigging square. Are these dudes saying Jesus is a square? Cuz he’s totally not.
