So, yeah, ima backa the cinema.

I gaht snuck-in-cocktails, protooberant reviews, plus also a zucchini.

Anywan figure this scenario gaht ZILCHOW to do with copy, please leave now.


See, bcs why we all go the movies anyways?

'Rijernly, MOVIES said movin' pictures.

RN, movies MOVE hearts, minds, souls ... an' mebbe 'xotic real estate optschwaahns or defo guys to STALK ...

An' much much more.

Bcs how else you gonna be TERRORIZED thanya sit through anythin' Stephen King wrote?

Or mebbe you wanna flounce out on ADVENTURE AGAINST THE ODDS?

Plenny movies here gonna makeya feel like a HERO.

(Evin if'n yr wife jus' leftcha, you consoomed by debt, an' you cursin' yrself for nevah learnin' how to make with a frickin' lasso.)

Wanna feel LOVED so all yr imperfectschwaahns melt away inta a kinda SOOP, 'pon which you can mebbe surf or jus' float or whatevah?

Seems RomCom is now a profiterbyool genre.

Sad an' Funny an' Hopeful nevah fails.

*sob*

See, bcs what movies gotta do with copy anyways?

Aw, bcs you wanna FEEL sumthin' good 'bout yr life, yanno.

Whethah you seekin' sun or denyin' shadows.

We are universally wishin' to be so.

You an' I.

More kisses, fewah STRANGLAHS AT DEADA NIGHT, kinda thing

That work for evrywan?

K, so, where you gonna get this?

Gotta be real spussifick here.

Movies gaht cinemas in evry city on the plannit, bcs they KNOW you wanna FEEL STUFF ' bout alla the STORIES.

Turns out copywritahs are stuck with DUMB ADS seekin' responses from PREOCCUPIED ASSHOLES c/o advertizin' oases where only the desprit & delooded coalesce by necessary accident.

So, hey -- be cinematic in all you write.

Offah high value seats for a transformative experience.

Then roll out the show.

You gotta move yr audience to cry, scream, laugh ... or whatevah feels right jus' now.

Confirm yr BIG SCREEN ADS delivah, despite the too-pliable-to-be-crunchy nachos an' the dahgs ain't always fully haht.

Uh huum ... which reminds Moi ...

Brawny Guys Twenny 5 was naht zackly a cocksure movie presentation.

Limp narrative, insuffuciently glissnin' vizyools.

So I I left aftah like 15 minutes once I'd downed muh snuck-in-cocktails an' bit the tip offa muh zucchini like a petulant child.

Main thing is, next time you writin' copy for anywan (an' their audience), mebbe think more CINEMATICALLY 'bout the next offah you screen out to your ampitheater of intrest.

Plus also, anywan gaht recipes for zucchini don't mean I gotta marinade, chop equil, naht incinerate, fry forevah, or mix with othah high-stress culinary techniques GUARANTEED to invoke misery, then mebbe comment freely.

    I agree, when you're a copywriter who writes a story to sell a product, the story should be like a good movie with the plot, good guy (product), bad guy (problem), etc.

    People remember good stories...just like good movies.

  • It's worth mentioning...

    That Ridley Scott started his esteemed career as a copywriter.



    Steve


    P.S. You can name your favourite movie that he directed - providing it's "Blade Runner" (The 1982 version).

      For sure, the guy riddled with all kindsa shit before he wrote Alien.

      "From outta their very narrative shall we grow the grisly & previously incomparitive."

      These are deep an' dark journeys, visceral & questionin'.

      Real great movies.

      Course'n, soon as the guy DIES, we gonna see all kindsa merch glorifyin' the Ridley lejind.

      For alla hoomanity!

      "Heeeey! How's your kid? She dowin' OK? Last I heard, she was scared half to shit 'bout midnight prowlers an' stuff."

      "Yeah, I know. It is a phase, an' it is a neighborhood problem, an' it is life, an' it is hell, an' it is a bummer -- but since we slapped that Ridley TM Cthulhoid death mask on her ****in' chops, me an' Bob ain't heard NUTHIN' ..."

    I read this a little bit ago in an email. An old Dear Ann Landers Post. I changed a couple of words to post it:

    "Dear Ann: I have a problem. I have two brothers. One brother is a Copywriter. The other was put to death in the electric chair for first-degree murder. My mother died from insanity when I was three. My two sisters are prostitutes, and my father sells crack to handicapped elementary school students. Recently, I met a girl who was just released from a reformatory where she served time for killing her puppy with a ball-peen hammer, and I want to marry her. My problem is, should I tell her about my brother who is a Copywriter? Signed, Anonymous"
