Ads Framed, Animals Right, Adobe Creates, Gremlins Insure


- Here we go again with yet another million dollar homepage thingy. This time, companies can buy one frame, yes, one frame of a video for $39. It might be cheap but no one's gonna see it.

- All animal rights efforts don't have to be as in your face or as off-putting as PETA. Animal Rights Stand takes a very different approach.

- Adobe's got a cool new site promoting its Creative Suite 3. On the site you can use the tools and build an actual website. EVB created.

- Weird. Just weird. Gremlins in Progressive Direct commercials.

- Former FCB CEO Steve Blamer is now CEO of Creston, a UK marketing holding company.

Re: One other thing that sets them apart from Peta is that Peta is a non-profit charity, a 501(c)3, as is The Humane Society of the United States. And, while creative, appears to be a commercial business. While The HSUS and Peta often take very different approaches to things, what any advocacy group does is going to be different from a commercial enterprise. No bash on AnimalRightsStand--just a clarification.

Brilliant! You suggest an 'animal rights' group that eats animals! That makes perfect sense. Perhaps if I buy one of their cute t-shirts they'll use the the profits to buy a steak dinner!
That would really help the cows out, eh?

you've got to be kidding! how can you possibly compare a couple of people who have a web site with not traffic (animalrightsstand) to a group which has helped to fundamentally change the way we think about animals (PETA).

I really think y'all should take a look at this article:

Thanks for the thoughtful discussion about! As one of the founders, I appreciate the mention on Ad Rants, that's for sure. You folks bring up some great points, and I especially enjoyed the blog about PETA. As you said, it's often a success just to have the conversation taking place. We hope to get more traffic in time, and we have an even greater hope that we can make a difference for animals! Thanks again for the passionately articulated comments.
