While I love these more "urban" images of Winnie and Piglet, they remind me of a cultural trend that's actually kind of annoying. Have you noticed that everything has to have an edge or attitude? Specifically in advertising? Your gum won't just freshen your breath, but it will smash bad breath out of your face! And you can't just have regular mayo, your mayo is young and hip. Chocolate bars don't taste good, they explode and assault your taste buds. Stains aren't just removed from your clothing, they're frightened away by a powerful abrasive bleach. Even a certain sports team in Toronto changed their logo from a beautiful blue bird, to an edgy creature that looks more like a shark. I know this may sound crazy, but all of these references are real ones. And if you pay attention, you'll notice that so much of advertising and marketing has to do with aggressiveness and attitude. What's the deal?
I'd rather opt for gentleness, kindness, and patience.
Thanks so much for coming by this weekend. And if you didn't get to see all the fun pictures with Marcin Moka, please go through last week's posts. You'll enjoy his photography.
