Dr Mumbo If your agency sucks April 22, 2012 9:02 14 Agencies are often accused of over-promising. But not usually in the same way as Sydney’s Blow Communications. topics Advertising, Blow Communications, Facebook, Marketing Share Tweet Share Comments: 14 John 22 Apr 12 you stay classy blow comms Reply So not impressed 22 Apr 12 Wow, scraping the barrel much, Blow Communications? Who the hell is/was your copywriter? Creativity in Australia really IS dead. Look up ‘originality’, ‘wit’ and ‘class’ in the dictionary. Then try making THAT your goal, instead of selling yourself so …um… literally (and dumbly). Reply jean cave 22 Apr 12 Hah very much b-low lowest comdom. Reply Steve de Niese 23 Apr 12 I already can see the clients this ad will attract. I feel sorry for their in-house teams. Reply AJ 23 Apr 12 Using Louie the Fly, or ‘Matter Of Fact I’ve got it now’ for 40 years wasn’t creative. But it was effective. If it works, it works. Maybe I just want an agency to service me all night long but as a copywriter I love it. Go Blow. Reply Jay 23 Apr 12 & we’re all reading and talking about them now Reply So not impressed 23 Apr 12 @AJ Really?? As a (fellow) copywriter, this makes me CRINGE. Where’s the irony, the wit, the cleverness (never mind brand BUILDING)? The copy could have been written by a 16-year old. So tired of lowest common denominator drivel. Reply Client 23 Apr 12 @Jay – yes we’re reading/talking about how we’re never going to use them as an agency Reply Jeff Purser - Blow 24 Apr 12 Thanks Mumbrella for noticing our ad. You’ve made our day. That’s what we do at Blow, “make ads for our clients that work – not ads that are made to win awards.” That’s why our current clients love us and that’s why we are the fast growing Ad Agency in Australia. Reply Creative wanker 24 Apr 12 ‘So not impressed’ So what would have been your angle and how would you have made it ironic, witty and clever? I’m guessing you would have choked IMHO It’s achieved the objective of standing out. Well done…let’s not over analyse Reply Oh really 24 Apr 12 Jeff Delighted you think Blow is the fastest growing Ad Agency in Australia. But, somehow I don’t think so. Reply Circling sharks 24 Apr 12 I might note that it’s super easy to say you’re Australia’s fastest growing agency when you’re starting at the bottom of the pile. And an approach like this won’t get you far off that bottom wrung. Just saying. Reply Ron Jeremy 24 Apr 12 I reckon it’s a cock-up and that it sucks. Reply Jeff Purser 30 Apr 12 Hi Ron, I’ve been a big fan of yours for a long time. I’m proud that we are even on your radar. JP Reply Comments are closed.
