The Solution for All in the Ad Biz: ‘Stop Making Ads’

We believe the Vimeo head sums it all up, but here we have a recent speech from Ivan Cash, the self-proclaimed “interactive artist” and co-conspirator behind projects like “Couchella.” If you have 35 minutes to spare, and can handle mentions of Urban Outfitters among other things, feel free to indulge your lunch break with this speech from Cash, who tells us that ads aren’t the key to success in the ad biz; personal projects are. Yep, it’s self-promotional and possible a little douchey, but can’t say the idea of side efforts from agency folks haven’t intrigued us in the past. Give it a whirl if you will.
