Google TV Ads Service Sends Alarm Bells Through AD Land

Just came across this video which shows Slate ad critic Seth Stevenson try out the Google TV Ads service that allows you to run your own commercial on national TV for as little as $100.

What next from the guys at Menlo Park this is a brillaint tool that gives virtually anybody the chance to broadcast their own ads for a fraction of the traditional cost.

A lot of advertising companies must be very worried, will try it out and let you know – keep your eyes open for a “happydude” ad 😉

The Last Advertising Agency on Earth

The video above is a viral that predicts the death of advertising agencies unless they embrace the power of digital creative and likens the death of the advertising industry to the fall of the Roman Empire.

It accuses the industry of clinging to its old ways and methods, particular its reliance on TV advertising, “even when clients begged for new, non traditional ideas”.

It ends with the statement  unless digital is embraced, the advertising industry will die.

The film concludes with a call to take back the tap, not only by making a personal commitment to avoid bottled water, but by supporting investments in clean, available tap water for all.
