I was just reading Dave Dye’s brilliant interview with Jeff Stark when I spotted this:
dave should do a book of this. best english ad blog now that you’ve moved. i love his interviews with photographers.
I bask in the glow of your indirect compliment.
Well that was weird.
A blog post I hadn’t written just appeared on the blog.
I’ll get to the bottom of this…
Ben, where did that huge para on rapping go? I was only halfway through it…
It was a strange form of spam.
Incredibly I got rid of it.
There was a comment asking about the Harvey Nicks shoplifting ad in all that weird spam. Be interested to hear what you think of it, Ben.
I quite liked it.
Maybe I’ll stick it in a post.
Sorry to intrude like this, but given the content, which includes classic ads – in occasional ad-breaks – you and/or your readers may be interested in taking a look at my site:
Nice site Mike. A joy in fact.
I miss paper and old school journalism.
It is very good. I tweeted it earlier.
Jeff Stark is a wonderful man to work with. Frustrating and inspirational in equal measure.
What is a producer meant to do when faced with the directive: “I need more…more…stuff!”
His story about a rival agency presenting and selling his agency’s ad concept to a reluctant client is charming.
Always the epitome of a ‘competitive creative’, Jeff famously said that his idea of a really miserable evening was to attend an awards do and watch his mates go up and get prizes…
You might be interested to know that the ‘user figure’ for my website jumped by an unprecedented 150 over the weekend – a development I can only attribute to the mention on your website and your subsequent tweet. Many thanks, it’s appreciated.
Good to know. I really enjoyed it.
