Working in advertising sucks the living life out of you. I remember the last time I actually fell asleep to a great idea I just had rather than worry about that fucking job I have to get out of the door first thing tomorrow. I miss that. I miss the last time I had a brainstorm on an epic Brief till 5 in the morning. I miss the last time I felt the excitement to win a pitch, the urge to make crazy fucking work and dare to present it. I miss the fun of it all. I’m going back to that, I’m going back to brainstorming instead of counting sheep. I’m going back to being the one that excites others, turn shit briefs into portals of creative Nakazaki.
Sometimes people make mistakes, if we aren’t driving too fast we might have an opportunity to slow down and even avoid that mistake. This ad shows us how to avoid the inevitable situation we could put ourselves in while driving fast, it also shows us the risks of driving while dazed or confused. Know that you should always be sharp and knowledgable, aware and calculative. I love this TV spot, I genuinely do. I hope i meet the person who came up with the idea, and the folks that helped him make it happen. I would like to shake that mans hand and in an ideal world maybe even have a brainstorm with him…
Intuit is launching an easy application to fill in your taxes called TurboTax. And in fact, filling in your taxes, is just like summing up everything you did in the last year. This is a pretty smart insight which gives a great creative angle to make a nice commercial like this one. The two shorter versions after the jump are not as good as the first one though.

Awesome spoof of Schwartz on the Sony Bravia commercials. The depiction of this idea has been beautifully filmed with hessian sacks of exotically-coloured spices blasting in sequence, with the classiness underlined by a well-judged piano score.
