Digiday Talks to @Vice_Is_Hip

The first sentence of Digiday editor-in-chief Brian Morrissey‘s piece rings very true to our ears: ‘The Twitter parody account is an art form already past its prime.’

However, there are still some exceptions and arguably one of the current shining examples of this art – thanks largely to the quality of the joke-writing – is @Vice_Is_Hip. The owner/operators wisely wish to remain anonymous; once the doer(s) of the deed is exposed (like for example Andy Borowitzz as @KimJongNumberUn), it’s never quite the same.

Today on the mediabistro.com Morning Media Menu podcast, hosts Jason Boog of GalleyCat and AgencySpy‘s Matt Van Hoven welcomed Adweek digital editor Brian Morrissey, who talked about the work he does for the Adweek Web site aggregating blogs written by members of the industry.

Morrissey also spoke about the news that advertising is down and will most likely be down for years to come. “The big question for advertisers is…is this a cyclical thing or is this a structural thing?” Morrissey said. “If it’s a cyclical thing, advertising will be rebounding…and it might be a little worse than something the industry has been through before but it will rebound…But advertising might become a smaller piece of the economic pie. And that’s a bigger deal, because that’s a structural change.”

Also discussed: advertising in China, Michael Phelps‘ new post-marijuana allegations ad for Subway and The Washington Post‘s salon scandal.
