Everything Old Is New Again
I used to do After-Lunch Breakdance every day. But, honestly, it wore me out. So I’m doing it on Fridays now – After-Lunch Friday (ALF)
The Difference is Creativity
Bud Light’s “The Difference is Drinkability” campaign is dismal. Their creativity department should be docked pay for poor performance! Yes, my buddy Alex was in one of the commercials, but I cannot recall a time when I was in a bar and heard someone say, “WOW! This beer is UNDRINKABLE!!! If only there was a beer that had drinkability!” But you’re trying to redeem yourself, Bud Light, with your new “Tailgate Approved” series. Andy likey.
Check out Jimmy Football as he pretends to run on the set with an air football.
Bow-WOW!!!! That’s my new word when I get excited.
Keeping with a dog theme, Bud Light has rolled out another fairly funny commercial (not a gut buster, but chuckle worthy)
Who needs SNL’s Toonces the Driving Cat when you’ve got this weird white dog?

All My Singles, Ladies (And Dudes)
People who used to read my blog earlier this year (when I was actually writing) know that I love giving things away. Well, the past week, I’ve had a few songs that have I’ve been wearing out and I’m giving each of them away through iTunes. If you want to be entered in the drawing, just leave a comment here with a “.”. Like that’s all it needs to be. You don’t even need to write any words! Registration ends Sunday, September 6 at 11:59pm. The songs:
Needtobreathe – Let Me Love (inspired part of the Power of a Simple Word post)
Joe Purdy – Wash Away (reprise) (featured in a Dawn commercial that shows as the only commercial of the on-demand version of the TV show Jockeys) <– this is the worst sentence I’ve written all week and I’m leaving it here so I can laugh about just how bad it is years from now.
Patrick Watson – The Great Escape
