Sex Sells… Label Whores

Diesel XXX is throwing a massive 17-city party on Saturday, October 11th.  But that’s not my point because well, who cares?  What’s interesting is the short they created to promote it.

ATE – XI

The streets of New Orleans are patrolled by a vigilante called The Gray Ghost, 52 year old Fred Radtke, a man who’s been systematically obliterating every piece of graffiti across the city with the same shade of gray paint since 1997. 

For my eleventh installment of All Things English… check out how British street artist Banksy used The Grey Ghost’s canvas as a launch pad for a fresh piece in New Orleans. 

 

Doesn’t this have a “Hello, my name is Simon” from Simon in the Land of Chalk Drawings feel?  Keeping in the ATE theme, these cartoons were originally made in England by Filmfair in the 70’s… and they too are rad.

I AM SPAM – III

If it takes three things to make a trend, then I think we are on to something with my third installment of I AM SPAM…

Janet Nelson is turning penis enhancement SPAM into something for the whole family… good, clean, cartoon fun.

 

And for the academics, there is SPAM is Poetry dedicated to turning authentic spam into prose.  The About page says the site is “a collection of desperate cries for attention from the marketing gutter.” 

I guess, I don’t believe in the Ferber Method.  Do you?
