Madison Avenue - Eat your heart out
Posted by: Ombligo
Date: December 04, 2019 02:25PM
Budget - $130
Result - Priceless

If you have not seen the Hafod Hardware Christmas Advertisement, you should. Homemade and better than anything the big box stores could ever hope for with their million-dollar campaigns.

Old school family hardware stores are still around, and I still love them. And go to them when I want to wander around, and/or am looking for a weird widget or thingamabob. And pet the store cat or dog.

The real value of the small hardware stores are the owners/employees. Those people know everything about all kinds of weird stuff.

The last 3 owners of my local hardware store were in totally different fields . Luckily they have stayed around long enough to learn something about hardware .

This commercial got me - [www.youtube.com].

It and the sound track had a very Up feel to it.






I am that Masked Man.

All you can do, is all you can do.

There’s trouble — it's time to play the sound of my people.

Your boos mean nothing to me, I've seen what you cheer for.

Insisting on your rights without acknowledging your responsibilities isn’t freedom, it’s adolescence.

I've been to the edge of the map, and there be monsters.

We are a government of laws, not men.

Everybody counts or nobody counts.

When a good man is hurt,
all who would be called good
must suffer with him.

You and I have memories longer than the road that stretches out ahead.

There is no safety for honest men except
by believing all possible evil of evil men.

We don’t do focus groups. They just ensure that you don’t offend anyone, and produce bland inoffensive products. —Sir Jonathan Ive

An armed society is a polite society.
And hope is a lousy defense.

You make me pull, I'll put you down.

I *love* SIGs. It's Glocks I hate.

You're a better man than I, UD.

I'm keeping it on the DL.
