Graffiti 360

In a world controlled by industry and the machine, this blog observes and critiques the world's true graffiti problem, which is advertising and marketing. From time to time, I'll also talk about art and interactive media. Or whatever else I feel like.

Sonics' Arena Design and WONGDOODY PR Director Get WTF Award

I don't know what's worse, having the Sonics leave Seattle, or having the Sonics stay and going to a game at this newly designed Emerald City Center. This is far beyond worthy of an abbreviation, so WHAT THE FUCK! This has a retractable roof! Are you serious? Basketball is a winter sport. It rains about 1 out of 3 days in Seattle during the winter. Why would we have a retractable roof on a basketball/hockey arena? Literally the stupidest idea I've ever seen.

The idea is being pitched by former Sonics player Fred Brown of the 1979 NBA Championship team, and David Bean, Senior Director of Public Relations at WONGDOODY. Dude, guys, WTF?

My favorite part is the quote in the Seattle P.I. - "...a retractable-roof arena that could house basketball and hockey franchises in the middle of an Epcot-like exposition center." Epcot-like? OOOOOHH, Fun Forest part II!

And, it will only cost $1 billion. Only $1 billion!

The Caveman Reality Report

Got some snail mail the other day from Geico. They're stretchin' the caveman concept, but I actually liked this piece of mail. I read the whole thing. To me it seems the newsletter was created to boost recall and not so much of a direct response piece. I think there should have been more call to action than repetition. I liked it though.

Pepper Spray vs. Gun

Found this Thailand print campaign for Pepper Spray. First thought, who's going to spray an attacker who has a gun. Really? The knife I can understand; guy with pants down - clear advantage Pepper Spray. This lady should be dead.

Toungue Gets Sprung for Cheesy Tots

In lieu of a better post, I thought this new Burger King spot was hilarious (especially if you're a guy) because nothing's funnier than making fun of morning wood.
