The Musings Of An Opinionated Sod [Help Me Grow!]


Father Pride …

Being a Dad is awesome.

It’s hard work, but you get so much more than you put in.

I’d like to think I’m a good Dad … I certainly want to be.

But then I saw this father and I realised I am rubbish.

Frankly, ‪I wish I could be this dedicated as him.

Actually, I wish I could be this dedicated to anything.

Adland once defined creativity for the masses, but nowadays most of them are playing catch-up to the creativity of culture.

Including Dads.

Like this one.

Sorry Otis.

I’m sure there are a lot of things you need to apologize to Otis for, but making an AC/DC song out of his early attempts to communicate isn’t one of them.

Otis might be grateful for this one.

Something to think about on the president day holiday.

Comment by Pete

It’s certainly worth thinking about, but maybe not on a national holiday. ; ) I believe part of the problem is the industry used to make work that infiltrated societies conversation, but now the sole aim appears to hijack the topical narrative of the times. With the majority of these ads offering zero solutions or having no right to be part of that subject matter, is it surprising people actively avoid them?

Comment by George

You forgot to mention people don’t want a brand to remind them of issues they already face. The only exceptions are if they’re solving it or educating more people about it so they can help solve it.

Comment by Pete

All good points of which I never imagined would be discussed because of a dad with a baby and AC/DC obsession and too much time on his hands. Nice.

The definition of dedication.

Comment by Lee Hill

Yep. Puts me in the shame.

Comment by Rob

I’m going to claim the lack of comments on this post is because of the national holiday that Pete said is on in the States today, rather than you all hating this post. Ha.

Comment by Rob

Hate is too strong a word.

It implies interest.
