advertising is like porn. Verses 1 – 8

I’m loving Blank is like Blank at the moment. Justin’s “analogies to live by” are quietly amusing and wry as fuck. I’m totally loving the Advertising is like Porn series that’s going on there at the moment…

• Advertising is like porn (1):
Only the people who create it are delusional enough to call it art.

• Advertising is like porn (2):
They both have weird self-congratulatory award shows.

• Advertising is like porn (3):
It’s hard to transition out of.

• Advertising is like porn (4):
The Internet took it to a whole new level.

• Advertising is like porn (5):
You fast-forward through the boring stuff.

• Advertising is like porn (6):
The same concepts are endlessly recycled.

• Advertising is like porn (7):
It creates careers for art-school dropouts.

• Advertising is like porn (8):
Working in the industry will affect your family life at some point.

I’m thinking of making an accompanying Art is like Porn series, a tribute to Mr Henson, of course.
