Nice Surprise

OK. I don't like to admit it, but I googled myself today. Don't ask me why. Probably some deep-seated secret longing for acceptance. Afterall, I just want to be loved. OR NOT...


I googled myself and found out that I received an award three months after I quit my job to become a missionary. The very last TV spot that I created in my 12-year career in advertising was recognized by ADWEEK in their "Best Spots." The commercial was created for Ford, and tells the story of a young woman in search of the last good man on earth. It just so happens that the last good man is a Sasquatch, and it took a Ford Escape to get her there. This was in the top three funnest shoots I ever did in my career. It was a nice way to exit.

Paul Hicks played our 6'-7" hero. Jim, my partner, played the 5'-10" writer. That's him in the bottom shot, not the top. Miss you bro!

*Disclaimer (wouldn't be a Ford spot without one)- No, I do not believe in evolution. I apologize for the fact that, if anything, advertising argues against the "Intelligent Design" theory.
