Ad of the Day – August 18 (Atlanta, GA)

Every morning I go to and other sites and look at 10 random ads (in any medium) from around the non-US world*. Then I post for you my Ad of the Day. Some days it will be awesome, some days it will be pretty weak. But it’s the Ad of the Day!

Today’s pick:

  • Agency: The Creative Circus
  • Location: Atlanta, Georgia (*this one is from the US but it’s too cool not to share. Plus, it’s my blog so I can change the rules!)
  • Client: Themselves
  • Name: “Dear John Hamm”
  • Why I like it: You just have to watch it. It’s not an Ad, per se, but it’s advertising related. You all love Mad Men (and if you don’t shame on you!). So did 3 students at this advertising school, who embarked upon a project to convince Don Draper to come speak at their graduation. The ingenuity, perseverance, and multimedia approach that they’ve used is pretty much guaranteeing them a job after graduation, whether Don shows up or not! 99% of the people would have this idea and then leave it. These guys went out and did it, and that makes all the difference.
