Housewife, USA, commits brand suicide
Seen on Ads of The World today: Suicide and Isadora Duncan.
There's not much to say about these ads. They claim to be for Etsy scarf seller The Year Of May, but I doubt any money changed hands.
What ads like this really are is promotion for the ad agency. In this instance, the responsible party is Housewife, USA, a Texas-based virtual agency run by Flor Leibaschoff.
These are typical of the "edgy shit" made by creatives, for creatives, with no real purpose other than to get the makers noticed.
Well congratulations. Making fun of suicide and the grotesque death of Isadora Duncan are certainly attention-getting. Not the good kind of attention, but at least we know what you're willing to sink to.
