So a few weeks ago I was visiting Alice, Jin, Buddha, and my sisters in Boston. I’ve been to Boston a lot cause I live close by and I have family there. This time in Boston I saw iPod ads EVERYWHERE. I sincerely doubt there is a place in Boston where you cannot find an iPod ad, aside from a FEW bathrooms. Here’s a picture of a few iPod ads by in the Prudential T-stop. What bothered me even more than the signs is the fact that I was listening to my iPod half the times I saw them. Damn it their ad campaign is good. Or is it?
Once I got back to Maine, I hopped on my brand new overpriced 15" Powerbook (signed by Woz) and decided to BECOME an iPod ad. Becoming an iPod ad isn’t difficult at all, but in this process I hear it is nearly impossible to resist the following:
- flailing arms
- spiking hair
- wearing a beret
- wearing chunky plastic-framed glasses
- becoming U2
I knew it was going to be hard, but I was ready.
I had a few photos of myself lying around, because I’m incredibly vain, so I removed their backgrounds in Photoshop.
Then I made nifty silhouette things for them, and I added holes to emphasize things like my hands.
After the silhouette I made the token iPod headphones, leading into my hoodie pocket because I am way too lazy to actually draw an iPod.
Then came the iPod ad colors. They are: blue #1379F9, purple #9369BF, orange #F59110, green #9FCC39, pink #EB5297.
I only came up with one that was funny. My mom disapproves.
One of the things I like most about my iPod is that I can pretend I don’t hear bums asking for money while I’m walking down the street.
