AdVerve 60: Holiday Edition

Play the show now.

Aka, our Holiday Bonanza ’Stravaganza. Wrappin’ up the year like no other. (Not really. For a proper year-end wrapup, GET YOU SOME BEANCAST! Bob's two-hour special features John Wall, Ken Wheaton and US TRULY.)

We do a quick run-through of holiday likes and gripes, including agency cards, holiday traditions, films, ads and music. There's also a brief but beefy manifesto on why we hate flashmobs more than anything else made by man. It's a lot, so we stretch it out to 45 whole minutes. (Dig 45 minutes better than 30? We're kinda likin' it, but tell us what YOU think.)

Also, Bill goes off on a tear about hateables on Twitter. It's a riot times 10, and all the better for sending you off on your way toward 2011.

Link sausages:

- Stupid Dell XPS laptop flashmob in apathetic café setting.
- Burberry's bohemian holiday folk track.
- Modea's Buzzword Bingo.
- Help Luckie decide where to give.
- Have a half-assed crowdsourced Ducati Christmas.
- BONUS: A Christmas Story gangsta remix.
- BONUS: Chinese dude claims having sexual tryst with alien. (In French, but Google Translate that bad-boy.)

Nice easy to digest show. Ok, that cheap shot at holiday oinkfest was uncalled for. Show was cool. Bookmarked for future reference.

I don't care how long the show is as long as there is a show. (there is probably a less wordy way to say that but it didn't dawn on me to try)

Happy New Year! "-)

30 minutes was much too short. The 45 minute format worked well for this show because it was a year-end wrap up, but there will be some shows with a much more focused topic that will require that hour. That extra 15 minutes of Adverve really helps me get through the day sometimes.
