i've tried messing around with ableton and everytime i come back to logic. its a lot easier to use/much more flexible imo. probably cause i've never given ableton that much of a chance.

i think he was still be able to get his message out without compromising much. the only thing that kinda bothers me is the hook, but he's gotta make shit they can play on the radio.

This is written from the perspective of a 17 year-old who plans on studying marketing/advertising in college next year if that helps at all. To me a successful advertisement has to be honest in conveying its message. It's all about making the lifestyle associated with the product desirable. Ads that try to hard at this always lose my attention and at times make me want to avoid a product. An example of an ad that tries too hard: Taco Bell's "drive thru rap"; a rip of that Big Mac rap viral video. The ad just makes me kind of mad, it's trying to force the 'hey look Taco Bell is all about fun and partying and late night' image down your throat way to hard, and it isn't even funny. An example of an ad that does this well are the Denny's Late Night ads. Their mad funny and don't really seem to be trying hard, they get to they point and appeal to their target customer: high ass kids who want to eat a ton at 3 in the morning. The whole 'use our product and get a hot girl' thing is expected and in some ways annoying, but so standard in today's ads that I ignore most acne or deodorant commercials based on the fact that I already know what they are gong to say. Ads that are unpredictable and absurd are usually what catch my attention, but anything marketed at teens these days seems to be dumbed down and looking for a cheap laugh. As for the specifics in service or nonprofit-based advertising I can't stress the fact enough that making your "product" look cool or even some what interesting is key, I know this is the point of advertising in the first place, but the 'cool' part is the big deal. Most teens aren't exactly down with helping out poor people or those who are less-fortunate, so the big draw has to be the "cool" factor. I've had a number of friends go to South America through Amigos or Habitat for Humanity and the big draw came from the brochures of cool looking teens having fun with some South American kids in some tropical environment. All of the pictures were very casual and didn't seemed to be forced at all, in fact my friends came back with pictures just like the ones in the ads.
