One Small Post

As most of you probably know, today marks the 40th anniversary of the moon landing. I was going to blog about this awesome ad anyway, so I guess it's funny how life (and marketing) has a way of working out.

It continues to blow my mind that we, as a people, made it to the moon. While I'm not the biggest fan of NASA and space exploration when so many other, more (ahem) domestic problems abound, I appreciate this accomplishment. Plus, even though luxury handbags have little to do with spacecraft, except maybe the price, it's a neat concept. When I first saw this ad on the back cover of a magazine, I had to stare for several minutes and take it all in.



  2. I loved this Vuitton ad. They've been doing some more interesting ads lately..I think Keith Richards and Mikhail Gorbachev have been in recent ones. I feel like they're trying to re-position the brand as elite and iconic -- it sort of lost its mystique once every suburban housewife with a juicy tracksuit was rockin' one. This ad is definitely my favorite of them, though. Really beautiful.
