Sean Cummins phone...
I spent a couple of years working with him and despite what his detracters may say (generally anymously on social media) he's a razor sharp adman who really knows his stuff.
This week the industry site Digiday asked a handful of industry names to tell them about their mobile phone homescreen.
As you would expect they all had Apple phones. Except Sean.
When I worked with him he was the only person I knew with a Blackberry. Seems he's now switched to a Samsung.
He also uses a PC rather than a Mac.
Which reminds me of the old Hegarty saying about zigging when others are zagging.
Perhaps that the secret to his success?

These taste dirty
Not sure if they still make them in the UK anymore. But man oh man what a great name for a confectionery product.
Who on earth was the fear mongering genius who decided that "double wrapped to keep the dirt out" was a good proposition?
Most ridiculous product benefit I've ever heard. Ever.

David & Emily in conversation
Nice chat with David Droga and Emily Anderson from Ogilvy about the creative opportunities offered by online video. Well worth five minutes out of your day.

Alicia the badass
Maybe it's because I'm a man but I just don't get the point of this ad.
I know we have issues with female body image and stuff in the media.
Are women actually gonna run down to the shops and buy a pair of Levis because Alicia Keys say they're badass?
But then again I'm a man. So what would I know?
