Art & copy by Doug Pray( Visual )

2 editions published between 2009 and 2010 in English and held by 963 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

This film is about advertising, that traces the shift from the old boy's network of the '40s to the more "creative," story-based approach of the '60s, when dynamic young men fought conventional wisdom to create campaigns that quickly transcended mere commerce and became pop-culture sensations. The guys behind the ads--the unknown people who've so profoundly shaped our culture--all want to be seen as genius artists, not corporate executives, which is the crux of many problems with the advertising revolution. This film, like a good commercial, is propulsive, filled with eye-grabbing visuals, emotional appeals, nostalgia, and instantly recognizable imagery--a greatest-hits survey of commercials that conquered the world
