The Howling Fantods

Ha ha ho he ha!

So yesterday we established that humour doesn't belong in advertising. But if it did it might look a little bit like this...

Fan's of David Foster Wallace's Infinite Jest might recognise these automatically. (No? You mean I have to explain!? Oh, for fucksake...) A selection of ads put together by Wallace's fans, based/derived on/from his novel. If you haven't read Infinite Jest, then do so immediately you philistine fuck! Commercials play a massive part of it - for example much of the action takes place in November during the "Year Of The Depend Adult Undergarment".

Right. That's enough levity. Get back to your work. You can put Goldfrapp on for the clients but no fucking smiling, ok.
