Trump Gets a GQ Makeover


There are some things that are just so clever, you can't help but smile...regardless of your political views.

In comes GQ, the benchmark men's fashion "voice" with a makeover of our new President, Donald Trump. I think it's fair to say that he's not exactly a fashion icon, nor claims to be. But you'll see in this video how a few simple tweaks could put him on the road to a runway. Perhaps.

Great branding and great timing for an iconic brand. GQ that is.

Give a look for yourself...


Gotta say, even if Trump didn't learn anything from this, I certainly did!

Target and The Grammy Awards - It Takes Two

If you missed The Grammy Awards the other night, there's a piece of advertising you shouldn't miss. It's actually more of a collaboration than just advertising, but then again that's the sign of the times when it comes to marketing.

I'll let the work speak for itself.

So fun and so on brand for all the brands involved. A bit infectious actually, as any piece of marketing - or collaboration - should be.

Citizens of the World



I went to the Dad 2.0 Summit last weekend...and learned a ton.

Andrew McCarthy was a keynote speaker, and he talked about making our kids "citizens of the world" - which I just loved. Enough to write about it on Huffington Post! Click here to give it a read.
