I’m not surprised that this all comes from an internal team and not agency. These big, bold, risky moves can only come from within companies from what I’ve seen.

The flipside of this is that terrible Pepsi ad. Big swing, but an even bigger miss.
I still maintain that marketing sux, but it’s sort of fascinating to watch one of capitalism’s strangest spawn evolve.
