George Parker: New York, New York, It’s a Hell of a Town!
George Parker is the perpetrator of adscam.typepad.com. Every week he shares his opinions on the advertising world with PSFK.
So, to all the unfortunate Adverati destined to while away their days amongst the concrete canyons of New York City. Or, as the Hollywood cowboys used to say in the abysmal “Pace Piquante” chip dip commercials, which aired long before you were born… Nu Yark Zitty! You are now hopefully recovering from “Advertising Week.” A faux cultural experience involving various events where you get stalked by out of work actors dressed as Mr. Peanut, Chiquita Banana and Josephine the Plumber, all supposedly representing immortal and well loved ad icons that anyone under the age of thirty has no recollection of whatsoever. Just like the long forgotten Pace Piquante cowboys.
