I found this ad in Advertising Age last night and I couldn’t help but share.  I’ll leave it to your imagination to decide what company’s logo should be at the bottom…

    This perfectly represents the Crowdspring Zeitgeist! But that’s too easy since Crowdspring would use the wisdom of the crowd to come up with the ad copy. Or did they? Can’t wait for the mystery to be revealed.

    Hey good point!

    Great ideas can “start” from anywhere but it’s what the end user does with them that makes them
    great. The idea is only part of the story. You can design a great bicycle, package it up and put it under the Christmas tree, but can its new 5-yr.-old owner put it together?

    Pretty sure Addy’s logo deserves to be at the bottom…as it was!

    Pete – Prefectly in what way? In that it’s someone else’s work? If the copy WERE crowd sourced…the strength, direction, and wit of the piece would be largely lost, and the resulting advert would not have been posted here, so…go figure.

    glamaz0n – surely if you’re designing bikes targeted at 5 year olds, you’d get Santa to deliver them assembled.
