Copyranter

[24 February 2006]

This blog is proof that 1) some of the most creative people in our society are writing copy for ads and 2) this is extremely corrosive to their souls. What a tremendous waste of a culture’s talent to have them thinking up ways to sell cold remedies and floor cleaner.

Most of the ad critiques to be found here are directed at ads’ stupidity and ineffectiveness (and not at the noxiousness of ads in the abstract—perhaps that is self-evident), but they are probably the funniest thing I’ve read in a year.
