Art & Corny

Plug in your headphones and enjoy this short film about Cornelius Trunchpole, an real-life ad man from the 60s (Move over Draper) who is touted as being one of the inventors of modern advertising.

The film premiered last week and features some of the modern-day big names (Jeff Goody, Gerry Graf, Steve Hayden to name a few) discussing how Trunchpole inspired and influenced them.

My fav part was this quote in the beginning:

Advertising is the art of making whole lies out of half truths. – Edgar A. Shoaff

Be sure to watch it to the end. Inspiration (and admiration) awaits you.
