Quote of the Day

Never write an advertisement which you wouldn't want your own family to read. You wouldn't tell lies to your own wife. Don't tell them to mine.

Hee hee.. Some people would do anything to get the job done, although it requires them to lie.

But as David Ogilvy says, we have to be a responsible advertising man in order to be a good one ;)

i watched once Cindy Crawford and other models were being interviewed and asked if they really use the make up they promoted. Cindy crawford said "I wouldnt be able to do such a lie"

oh..i trust Cindy. But do you think all models are really using the products they promote? not so important for me even if they lie :D

BBC featured Ogilvy's biography last night. An interesting man. He got a scholarship at Oxford (but was thrown out later), he once worked at the restaurant, salesman of Aga cooker in Scotland (later was asked to write their sales manual), joined Amish community, and started the advertising business at the age of 38. Wow...
