This Is What Creatives Really Think About Their Day Jobs
The scariest advertising-as-horror show ever -- and one clearly written by an agency creative -- was "How to Succeed in Advertising." Here's a new one, though. "Branded" premiered on Sept. 7, but I didn't know about it because my mind has been controlled to completely miss its existence. The sci-fi film, which could have been written by Marshall McLuhan or the guy who wrote Subliminal Advertising back in the ’70s, is about total mind control through consumer brands. Wait, that's not science fiction! Well, if you add really incredible computer graphics, it is.
