Happy New Year.

Thought I'd end '09 with my fave Christmas commercial this year. It captured my attention every time.

And THAT is the power of excellent sound design...

Glad to see AT&T isn't getting defensive or anything...

Back-to-back-to-back full-page ads in last weeks The Wall Street Journal.

Is somebody running scared? Or are they just spending all this money to talk to Verizon?

Funny. In an uncomfortable sort of way.

The Target Christmas ads this year are great--yet all of them have a certain...edge. This one makes me laugh and wince at the same time.

If these people were real, they'd be divorced by June.

Verizon map ads keep going--and getting better.

Undaunted by the ATT lawsuit, Verizon keeps creating map ads comparing their 3G coverage to AT&T's.

I like this one because it's simple and well executed. The guy's facial expression at the end adds a bit of humor to the spot as well.

There's nothing better than low budget Christmas commercials.

Sometimes when you have no money to spend on production, you end up with the best commercials.

Well...not best. But certainly fun.
