The Old Smoke

Lamarde's cigs & tabacco advertising collection. Art nouveau & smoking. Can't get any better (if you ignore the fact that you need to log in to get there).

"...un gust de trei ori bun, un zambet impreuna.".

Exista in spatele acestui slogan /adline niste intrebari ingrijoratoare despre cum functoneaza industria de advertising, daca te gandesti cam prin ce trece un slogan inainte sa fie aprobat.
Vorbim de o chestie care a fost scrisa de un copywriter, in teorie un profesionist al comunicarii, de cateva layere decizionale la client, in care specialisti in marketing si comunicare stau si intorc lucrurile pe toate partile, si nu in ultimul rand despre un consumator pe care mi l-as fi dorit un pic mai putin anesteziat.

Wake up, people! Un zambet impreuna?!

The last of the barn finds

"In this undated image released by Bonhams, an extremely rare 1937 Bugatti Type 57S Atalante, is seen in a garage in Gosforth, England, where it was found by relatives after the death of the owner, an elderly doctor who last used it around 1960. The Bugatti, one of only 17 ever made, is expected to draw a record price when it is auctioned in Paris next month." (AFP)
