Since starting this blog I have tried to keep what I write about here seperate from what I do in my day job. But today is a Big Day from my other life so I'm going to break my rule.
As long time readers of this blog know, I lost my job in advertising after suffering a severe traumatic brain injury in early 2006. In January of this year I returned to full-time work and the first TV commercial I've contributed to in over six years is airing tonight on the season finale of Mad Men. The show airs at 10:00 PM Pacific Time, 9:00 PM central so I hope you can catch it.
Not to brag, the spot is pretty cool and involves a blonde, a brunette, a bachelor (not), booze and a bullet. The company is Turn, which does mystical stuff to place online ads fast, hence the bullet. If you see the spot, I'd love to read your reactions in the comments.
