history lesson

Weiden's new website is up. It's a fucking flashmonster.
Some will love it. Most will use it as an excuse to gripe about Weiden, suddenly the dark horse for losing their grip on Nike and a new TV campaign for butter that's a little too Highlife for the ad community at large.

I'm all for a good public flogging, but I think most of the WK-hate is pretty unfounded. Of course what do I know, perched here in Dallas, with little more than an AdCritic-eye view on the greater woes of the industry?

I guess that's my point. Weiden may be running a concept through the good-conceptinator, but they sure as fuck aren't cranking out the latest batch of Viagra ads. Jesus. VHS? What is this, 1997?

That site is a counterintuitive grab bag that screams "fuck convention." Might not play well for people actually looking for something, but it certainly is creative.

Nice take on the site Jetpacks. Yup, creative - and if they are trying to weed out potential clients who aren't cool enough to "get it", they hit their mark a site that says nothing about what they do. Hmmm.
