Just finished the second spot for 43 Alumni for Joe Biden less than a week before the election. We worked virtually as a team around the clock. And what a team. #43biden #michaelcerny #billwestbrook #luckypost #dougrucker

Years ago, I had the good fortune to work with the late, great Doug Sahm and Freddy Fender, with Flaco Jimenez and Augie Myer back when they had gotten together as Texas Tornados. They created a track for a radio campaign I developed for El Chico Mexican restaurants that featured original Tex-Mex food recipes. The spots drew a parallel to original Tex-Mex music. What a treat that session was.

Homeless To Happiness

For the past seven years, we have partnered with Vogel Alcove to help communicate their mission to eradicate the traumatic effects homelessness has on the most vulnerable members of our society: homeless children. This year we were tasked with touting a new, strategic two-generation approach which adds new programming for the parents of the children to help the entire family break the cycle of poverty. The film, entitled "Homeless To Happiness" recently premiered at Vogel Alcove's annual Arts Event, their largest fundraising event of the year. Narrated by Angie Harmon and scored by Stephen Arnold Music.

Samsung Galaxy: The Future

Squarespace vs.Samsung. Vote for your favorite.
When we posted the Squarespace spot last week (see previous post below), we were gobsmacked over the brill concept. In this lovely fantasy, actor Idris Elba lip syncs an innocent rendition of "Que Sera Sera" sung by a young girl. This juxtaposition immediately plucks your heartstrings. Elba fantasizes about what he could become--a boxer, an astronaut, a puppeteer, a pastry chef and more. The end line reads, "Dream It. Make It."

Then, on Sunday's Super Bowl, Samsung scores one of the coveted Top 5 spots using the same song, but the classic rendition by Doris Day from the 1956 film, Hitchcock's "The Man Who Knew Too Much."

Please post a reply and let us know which you prefer and why.

From 5G to impossible displays, we’re creating the future of technology so you can create the future. #DoWhatYouCant

Bring Back the Ampersand

Ever tried to use an ampersand in a hashtag? Or a URL? It doesn’t work. We think that’s pretty lame. After all, the ampersand was actually part of the alphab...

Listen
with the night falling we are saying thank you
we are stopping on the bridges to bow from the railings
we are running out of the glass rooms
with our mouths full of food to look at the sky
and say thank you
we are standing by the water thanking it
standing by the windows looking out
in our directions

back from a series of hospitals back from a mugging
after funerals we are saying thank you
after the news of the dead
whether or not we knew them we are saying thank you

over telephones we are saying thank you
in doorways and in the backs of cars and in elevators
remembering wars and the police at the door
and the beatings on stairs we are saying thank you
in the banks we are saying thank you
in the faces of the officials and the rich
and of all who will never change
we go on saying thank you thank you

with the animals dying around us
our lost feelings we are saying thank you
with the forests falling faster than the minutes
of our lives we are saying thank you
with the words going out like cells of a brain
with the cities growing over us
we are saying thank you faster and faster
with nobody listening we are saying thank you
we are saying thank you and waving
dark though it is
