  1. Glad to hear that you two are in love again. Well that’s the vibe I’m getting anyway, hee hee. I’m so mature!

    Glad you’re back in full swing.

  2. Does anyone know what those festive ads with the big present wrapped in striped blue paper, with shiny silver ribbon and a bow are for?

  3. Hey Karen, excellent stuff on Dry Shave — I still have to get Erin to check it out, but we’ll be sure to put in a plug for you guys soon!

    And yeah, Rodney, what’s the deal? I still only see the wrapped blue gifts… I’m assuming that whoever spent all that money is going to pull a switcheroo and reveal their impressive new consumer electronics product sitting amidst the torn paper, just in time for the holidays.

    Actually, I was going to suggest getting the jump on them by sticking a “paper burst” image overtop the ads, like so:
    This Christmas: COCKS!

    Then you could throw in whatever subversive imagery and ad copy you like, and it could be This Christmas: COCKS! Or something, y’know.

  4. I’ve seen some of the “unveiled” ads, and zowie — it’s cell phones!

    A radical new redesign, a paradigm shift in txting? Nope, just phones. Well that was a lot of ad money spent.

  5. I was kind of disapointed that those ads turned out to be boring Bell cellphones. I don’t know if that says I’m a loser. It’s similar to the original Virgin Mobile ads, as well as those ads for Ryerson with iPod headphones, and orange peels.

    (spends a lot of time on the TTC)

  6. Hey now, the Virgin ads were all edgy — “We’ve got a cure for The Catch!” The Ryerson ones were for a cultural studies thing, so they made sense.

    These were far more disappointing. They should have left those festive wrapped presents decorating our transit system. Phones, pfft.
