Weekly Linkly is back. As is—dare I say it—good work! I've seen more good work this week than I can remember in a very long while. Here's the business:
- A recently revived Sell! Sell! post about the quote "All progress depends on the unreasonable man."
Can't put my finger on what I like so much about this ad. I've watched it 5 times and still want to watch it again, so it must be good. Thanks to AdVerve for the find.
- The Ad Contrarian scientifically dissects the industry in Neuroscience and Pseudoscience.
- Briefs. We've all complained about what they shouldn't be. The San Francisco Egotist decided to get some opinion about what they should be. (bonus Sell! Sell! tweet as a sidecar)
The new Axe ads remind me of the great series Errol Morris did for High Life. They had me, for a brief moment, consider picking up some Axe body wash next time I'm at the store. The moment has passed. See the rest on Ben Kay's blog.
- A modest proposal by Vinny Warren: Make Love, Not Virals
Google's Project Re:Brief. Any lover of advertising has to be teeming with jealously over the googlers getting to work with these ads/creatives.
- Dave Trott's advice on how not to be like the rest of everyone. Hint: don't be so scared of risk. (Bonus riff on the subject by Seth Godin)
