Two Good Things For A Monday - One Pretty Good, One Great

It's Monday and I bring you two good things - well actually one of them is great, but I'm going to make you wait for that.

First is this new bus ad that's going around for Pizza Express, advertising their new.... wait, I don't actually have to tell you what it's advertising - see how that works? Amazing.

Anyway, it's a good example of a bus wrap – and of outdoor in general. I've seen a few of these new Routemaster wraps and they are pretty good, but this is the strongest I've seen so far, it stands out a mile.


The second thing is this amazing recording of outtakes of Orson Welles doing advertising voiceovers. A couple of things here. Just imagine directing one of the world greatest ever actors and directors in a recording session? Also, what an unbelievable voice he has – he brings something amazing to these scripts. Lastly, imagine a version of the ad industry where people are using actors of his calibre to voice their ads. Draws in to stark relief how dumbed down the work has become today. Anyway, that's a thought for another day. For now just enjoy this...
