Dog Person or Cat Person?
Wow, time flies... I just realized that today is Friday, because I didn't go home yesterday. Can you believe it... I had to stay in the office in order to finish my work for an ad competition. It is for the first Asian advertising festival, which held to recognize young talents in advertising industry. In order to win, a team (consist of 2-4 people) should solve a problem based on the given brief. After that, several chosen finalists should present their works in front of the judges, and they will decide the winner. The announcement for finalist is tomorrow, and I am a bit anxious to hear the result. Wish me luck!
As I've promised, I am going to show you some of my favorite commercials of all times. One of Creative Director in Saatchi& Saatchi used to say that two most compelling subjects on advertising are animal and children. Well, I find it quite true ya... Here is one of TVCs that had captured my attention, way before I entered the industry. I watched it during my second year in art college, and since then I felt that I wanted to join in the fun of creating commercial and entertain people.
It was a TVC for IKEA which used a dog as a star, and it was so cute! Check it out through YouTube and tell me what you think of it. Maybe I really liked this TVC cute because I am a dog person. I think dog is adorable and loyal. Some thinks that dogs are stupid, but I beg to differ. Because I like dog, I find cats are less adorable... I don't know why, but those two animals seem to always have the opposite impression. How about you? Do you think a person's favorite animal can define his/her personality? Let's discuss.
PS. One correction from my previous post: yes, I've mistakenly written the population of Jakarta. It was the entire population of Indonesia, and Jakarta was the largest population with 8.7 millions people. Thank you for all your concerns about the earthquake that happened in Indonesia...and yes, it happen near the capital, in Tasikmalaya for exact (M=7.3). During the time, I was brainstorming for ideas with my teammates and we were sitting near a swimming pool on a restaurant garden. Guess what happened? The water inside the pool was shaking hard, along with the gazebo we were sitting on! The earthquake happened in 3 minutes, and it was quite an experience. Well, I am thankful that Jakarta is still in good condition. My condolence for all the victims who lost their homes. Let's remember them in our prayers.
