Back In Action.
Daaaaaang, Europe. You sure are cool. I want to thank you for having me the last couple of weeks while I recharged my mind with a loaded-like-a-baked-potato tour of four countries. Below is a snapshot of me from the Cliffs of Moher in Ireland, as well as my favorite copy lines that I heard or saw in each destination. Thanks to all my clients for your patience as I took this much-needed reprieve. Now I’m back at my keyboard and ready to rock, so let’s roll.
Paris: A ripped and ravaged poster on a fire hydrant that said ‘CREATIVES ARE THE NEW ATHLETES.’ Agreed.
Belgium: “Purgatory’s kind of like the in-betweeny one. You weren’t really sh*t, but you weren’t all that great either.” A quotation from the film In Bruges that we fittingly rewatched while—you guessed it—in Bruges.
Ireland: An advertisement for a burger and fries that claimed “You know you feckin’ want it.”
Amsterdam: “In the long run, the sharpest weapon of all is a kind and gentle spirit.” The words of Anne Frank, who touched my heart more than I can describe as I walked the rooms of the legendary annex where she hid for two years listening to the bells of the Westerkerk toll.
