For a brief period I studies commercial design in college – a course that would allow me to work in an add agency in the future, create campaigns and become a great copywriter. I dropped out after the first year. And am somehow sorry now that I didn’t finish the degree, although that would mean that I wouldn’t be in the happy place I am now.
I did leave leave with me a minor malfunction. I am one of those people that screams “FLICK BACK!” when the adds are on… Much to the annoyance of my fellow television staring munchkins. I’m so fond of that one moment where you’re mesmerized by the blue glaring box when a wonderfully enticing add comes on. I doesn’t happen a lot. I can tell you by heart a list of adds that have made me oh-so happy in the past.
This one is one of those. It’s one of those adds where I go “Damn, if I had finished the degree and was working in advertising, *I* might have created that great piece of advertising art!”.
On this particular one – The product: Meh. The add: fabumelicious! The envy level: an extremely high shade of green.
