Perhaps the most pointless advert ever?

I really can’t see the point of this advert which has apparently just been shot in LA other than scaring people and reinforcing the fact that every Arab and Indian is out to “slaughter” “innocent” Americans. Really what is the point? Other than perhaps causing paranoia and hysteria, you surely wouldn’t be able to spot a suicide bomber before they’re going to do something anyway? And I can’t imagine the ad’s is aimed at the terrorists, as I have serious doubts as to whether a glossy bullet time advert is going to change their beliefs in a single 45 second slot?

More Work

Well today I’ve started my project management role at work, taking on slightly more work than I’m already doing it’s worthwhile for the extra amount of control it’ll give me in work that the agencies take on. Traditionally with the agency I’m with now my say so has extended to the final yes or no on new clients and existing work, unlike my previous agency where I used to take total control of every project with the current one at times I’ve felt a little, well… out of the loop, and at time’s that’s not as unpleasant as it might sound, but the times have changed and working in relative ignorance is no longer an option, especially as we’re growing so fast. So from today the more active CD came into play, and quite immediately scared a client with a job list so comprehensive 3 days work covered 3 full pages… I can be accused of a lot of things, but a lack of thoroughness isn’t on of those things!
