More power to your fingers , says BBC.

A piece of trivia here - the logo of Walking fingers is a trademark of the Yellow Pages.The name and concept of "Yellow Pages" came about in 1883, when a printer in Cheyenne, Wyoming working on a regular telephone directory ran out of white paper and used yellow paper instead. In 1886 Reuben H. Donnelley created the first official yellow pages directory, inventing an industry.

Hi, I happened to arrive to your blog. I guess that you, as a adfan, have already take part in discussions about whether it is or not art, ad ethics, etc. For me, a beatiful or funny image followed by a trademark name or logo is always a lie, bullshit. Necessarily. The information they provide is always false. And they are modifying the associations that our mind is able to do, poor and interested associations, of course.

I really get depressed when I think about the hundreds and hundreds of people waking up every morning going to a work that consists in lying to another persons. Governments should forbid this.

Because of all this I would reccomend you not to give ads a treatment that should only be given to art.

Just trying to make some debate, nothing personal against you. I know that mantain a blog is a hard work.
