Marn’s Market is Back in Business

In Uncategorized on September 6, 2017 at 9:07 pm



Just a warning – I have allowed this blog to lie dormant for far too long. You don’t care about excuses and I don’t have time to make up any good ones!  But stay tuned: in the next few weeks, I’ll be talking about some recent industry topics, and talk about several ad campaigns currently running that I think deserve to be praised or panned. Among them:

Commercials like…..

  • The grade school teacher thinking about her vacation while the class runs rampant in the background
  • The pretentious Range Rover squad of thrill seekers escaping a dust storm and winding up on speeding watercraft
  • The return of  PuppyMonkeyBaby
  • “Enjoy the go.”
  • Subaru’s would-be hobos
  • The Most Interesting FAN in the World

Topics like…

  • The new six-second commercial unit
  • Emojis
  • When does new media stop being new?
  • Storytelling (what a concept!)

As always, I’d love you to get involved. Got an ad you love or hate, and want to hold it up to public scrutiny? Add a comment. Meanwhile, know that we’re in here stocking shelves with fresh merchandise and trying to resist the takeover bid from Amazon. Marn’s Market will reopen shortly!
