Bloomberg Lays On Guilt Trip in Anti-Piracy Ads

Mayor Mike Bloomberg is on a mission to stop digital piracy in the Big Apple with an ad campaign that comes to us courtesy of his Office of Media and Entertainment. The basic idea it seems is to make New Yorkers feel bad for illegally downloading the latest theatrical releases because in doing so, you’re putting a fellow NYC citizen out of work. To help drive this message home, agency Fathom lured that host from Jerry Seinfeld‘s lame Marriage Ref show to play a “vendor” who gives passersby a choice (see above).

It’s a decent try, Bloomy, but we have to agree with sites like Techdirt that say this effort from the Mayor’s Office (with additional support from not-quite-forward-thinking groups like NBC Universal, the MPAA and others) is probably a waste of NYC taxpayers’ money. Credits after the jump.

Kisich Leaves Goodby for Caviar

After three years as an agency producer at Goodby Silverstein & Partners, Cathleen Kisich is leaving for the prodco land as she’s heading from San Francisco to Los Angeles and joining Caviar as a producer. Kisich joined Goodby in June 2007 and subsequently worked on campaigns for HP (such as “Summit on the Summit” and one starring Jerry Seinfeld) as well as Sprint, Netflix, Nintendo and Comcast.

The SF native is no stranger to traveling up and down Cali. Prior to Goodby, Kisich worked at Gartner Films in Santa Monica before heading back up north to take on an integrated producer gig at Publicis & Hal Riney. Kisich began her career at Citron Haligman Bedecarré/AKQA.
