From the Archives. Comcast Pill Ad.

Good one for Comcast from a few years ago.  We were asked to develop print ads for a variety of vertical publications that would target specific business customers that had a need for a large amount of bandwidth.  This was the first in a series.

MSNBC Makes a Very Good Move.

MSNBC makes a very good move.  I never did understand the repeat of the Chris Matthew’s show at 7pm.  Ed works in the 5PM spot and now that Matthew’s will be live, it should be a nice lead in for Chris Hayes.   

I am sorry to see that Hayes is having some challenges with his numbers.  He’s a pretty smart guy that’s worth listening to.

2014 Corvette Stingray. Watch for Sales Records.

Posted by Joseph Young on under Opinions. Everyone has them. | Be the First to Comment

I’m going to stick my proverbial neck out and say that the new 2014 Chevy Corvette Stingray is going to just smoke all the sales projections for the car.  It’s exactly what GM needs right now.

The price is fine for entry and even with all the bells and whistles, the Vette is still in the ballpark.

This is a lot of car for a reasonable amount of money. 

I think the car deserves its Stingray badge.  The exterior is more aggressive in tone, with a bit of an edge.  From what I have seen, the interior will just blow you away.  I can also tell you from personal experience that if the seats are now considered “World class,” we’re in for a real treat, because that’s been the weak link in our C6.

The F-1 approach to the driver’s ‘compartment’ was a very nice upgrade.  The ergonomics are much better than previous designs.

Let’s hope they have a couple of cool colors that they will only offer for one or two years.

Drop in to your local dealer sometime in the next few weeks.  They should start arriving any time now.  I hope.

Bud’s the Leader in the ER

Posted by Joseph Young on August 15, 2013 under Opinions. Everyone has them. | Be the First to Comment

Budweiser is the top brand for those who visit the ER, with 15 percent of the market!  Now that’s a claim to fame.  The comment, “Some products are marketed to certain groups of people in our society,” really says it all.
