Honest Ads

The era of Mad Men continues in the digital age. Where there’s a space, there’s a temptation to use it; emptiness is irresistible. I walked the streets of Toronto and further with Mr. Goose to discover the meaning of life hidden behind letters and images in posted advertisements. Accompanied by the spirit of Nietzsche, Mo Di, Tolstoy, Einstein and the cast of Mothy Python, we are about to add our deep voices to the choir of philosophical marketing. Enjoy!

  1. Really funny Toronto’s ad tour, I used to live there some years ago and I still remember buying some stuff at Honest Ed, and the the ad of the socks can’t also apply to me cause I never worn them except in our snowy cold Canadian winter . Thanks for those great pics !!
