Visual Facilitation R500 Off Voucher — Anton Crone, Saatchi & Saatchi Cape Town, originally uploaded by royblumenthal.
Anton Crone was one of the guests at today’s live recording of the tv show I’m part of… CNBC AFRICA’s weekly magazine show, ‘Kaleidoscope’.
He’s a Creative Director at Saatchi & Saatchi Cape Town.
He was in the studio to talk about an incredible Guinness commercial that should start flighting in Europe shortly. It features a whirlwind going about its whirly business, demonstrating the elements required to make a great glass of Guinness.
I’m not a fan of alcohol advertising. In fact, I’m an opponent of the entire discipline of advertising alcohol. I believe it’s one of the key causes of alcoholism. (Apart from the dumbfuckery of the alcoholics themselves, of course.)
But in this case, I’ll probably have to make an exception. It’s a brilliant ad, brilliantly made. And if I were still an advertising whore, I’d wish I’d written it.
This is the blank version of a voucher I’m sending to Anton to make use of my services. It’s part of a self-marketing drive to leverage my presence on Kaleidoscope.
The components of this painting were all made live in studio this afternoon on my Rectron-sponsored ASUS R1E tablet pc, running ArtRage 2.5. No alcohol was consumed during or after the making of this voucher.
