Giant Hootie statue to be erected in Columbia, SC's Five Points
Which reminds me: Darius did a totally surreal, and really rather amazing Burger King ad back in the day. For something called the TenderCrisp Bacon Cheddar Ranch sandwich.
I didn't pay much mind to it then, but now that I have friends in advertising, a penchant for watching "Mad Men," and a bunch of branding/marketing gigs under my own belt, I have to say that this is one of the most brilliant pieces of ad world magic that I have ever seen. Anyone know which agency made this behemoth of awesomeness? Apparently directed by rad photopgrapher David LaChappelle. Sweet.
Thanks to Columbia, SC music phenom Chris Bickel for posting the link to this beautiful piece of advertising history on the Facebook.
And thanks to Columbia, SC in general: this place is reeeeeeeeeally delightful!
(Um, I'm actually being serious. Crazy, right? But so true!)
