Phila style humor

Phila's April Fool's joke - a lane for texting pedestrians. This week long public awareness campaign was the brainchild of Rina Cutler, the Deputy Mayor for Transportation and Utilities, with support from our Mayor Nutter.

NY state senators Eric Adams and Kevin Parker wear hoodies during the March 26, 2012 Senate Legislative session in solidarity with Trayvon Martin - the latest Black American killed because of a deep seated assumption of his criminality.

absolut truth

This is one of my favorite advertisements of all time. It was a part of a 2008 Absolut Vodka billboard and press campaign in Mexico. Its great social commentary in a time when states like Texas and Arizona are "demanding their country back" with anti-immigrant and Latino legislation. The ad was eventually withdrawn after complaints from offended Americans for its depiction of an actual map from 1830. The international agency responsible, Teran/TBWA, is best known for the Taco Bell Chihuahua campaign.
