Perception in the Advertising World

American Flag | U.S.A. and Calif.

There has been long debate on who made the first American flag along with who continues to make the best. I Don’t know the answer to either of those questions but Betsy Ross comes to mind and I heard she was one heck of a seamstress. It’s said that she worked in the upholstery business, repairing torn uniforms for the Revolutionary War solders, plus made tents and blankets for the Continental Army of 1779. As compelling as the history is to me, I became fixated on the rules. Rules ranging from how the flag should be handled to displayed to discarded.






California Milk Processor Board | Southern Calif.

Grupo Gallegos is the independent advertising agency that specializes in the Hispanic market for the California Milk Processor Board or more commonly known as Got Milk. Translating Got Milk from English to Spanish is Toma Leche, which is the headline used throughout the Latino world in the USA. This campaign was meant to showcase milk’s abilities to provide you with a more restful sleep, in turn allowing you to dream bigger and better. Take a look at these great ads.

Super Bowl XLVII | San Francisco 31 vs. Baltimore 34

Below are some notable ads from this year’s Super Bowl. Each one has been over talked about so I’ll keep it to a minimum. In no particular order, these are my favorites.

Dodge Ram | God Made a Farmer
Thanks to the knee-weakening voice of the legendary Paul Harvey, we’re now able to understand the true grit of American farming. Thanks Ram.

Budweiser | Brotherhood (Clydesdales)
In 60 seconds I met, grew up and fell in love with an amazing Clydesdale horse. Budweiser has made the oversized breed famous with every timeless commercial they’re involved in. Plus, Fleetwood Mac was happening.

Tide | Miracle Stain (Montanaland)
Tide, part of Procter & Gamble has been a household name for decades and with their countless ads showcasing over 80 of their strong businesses, this one in particular made me listen. Spoiler alert: the ending is a perfect curveball.

Go Daddy | Perfect Match (Big Kiss)
It’s pretty disturbing. Mega-model, Bar Refaeli and unknown geek Jesse Heiman or “Walter…” Just make out.
