Energy BBDO’s next Creative Salon is on April 12 from 4:00 – 6:00pm featuring Jim Lasko. Lasko is the artistic director of Redmoon. For 20 years Redmoon Theater has been creating the greatest spectacles Chicago has ever seen. Performances range from puppets, live music, elaborate costumes, acrobatic feats, to curious machines and of course fire. Some performances are guerrilla-style while others are more formal. It's impossible for us to explain so watch and be amazed and then go to the Creative Salon and hear Lasko's thoughts on his work. Don't forget to RSVP
New work for Marriott Residence in from McGarryBowen NYC. Man we love animals in TV spots, but this is not the typical animals in TV spots you are used to. Interesting idea that it's a place you feel comfortable in, not just a room. We wish the music played a bigger roll, seems kind a flat and it shouldn't seem flat with giant animals being the stars.
Google has brought us a many fun April Fool's jokes and this year was no exception. Google maps for Nintendo NES, because some of us are still using the classic hardware. This Prank actually works thought. Check out the low res maps.
So both are worth a read but most of us, being in The Advertising World, will find solace in the counterpoint. We do learn at work, we do!!!! Also it's just impossible for everyone one of us to be in an indie rock band and still be able to eat sushi and drink our speakeasy style cocktails. Thanks advertising, for paying us and letting us be us.
