Sweet Mothers of Invention, these are good. I know they’ll be “too weird” for many of you. Well, you’re all wrong. It’s a music magazine, the ads should be weird. Plus, I’ve played drums since I was six, so there.

The concept, the casting, the sets, the voiceover (who sounds like industry-famous Doug Jeffers—who voiced the excellent Errol Morris Miller High Life commercials—but it could be a sound-a-like).

Shit, I wish I had done these.

Ad agency: Latinworks, Austin.
