Happy holiday(s)!

Posted on October 30th, 2006

To work in advertising is to be forever out of sync with the rest of the world.

I can't walk through a mall at this time of year without a friend commenting on the outrageousness of Christmas decorations appearing before Halloween. Don't even start with me, okay? I've been walking in a winter wonderland since late August. While you were doing your back to school shopping, I had Jingle Bell Rock in heavy rotation on iTunes, trying to achieve the holiday headspace.

Speaking of which: I thought this was funny in English, but I find it absolutely hypnotic in German...


And now, I give you the ultimate Christmas/Halloween mashup:

Words vs. Pictures is on hiatus and will return next Monday. Happy Halloween, kids.


P.S. to Alexandra: I can't wait to finally meet you in person. See you in eight hours. :-)
