It's so strange being in-house watching an agency make a case study video about how well a campaign performed when, in reality, it performed quite poorly for us. Dirty little business.

Wrote an original jingle for a TV spot.

🎶 When I was just a little baby art director
Creatives used to tell me these crazy things
They used to tell me my advertising was really bad
They used to tell me they hated me
But then I got a little bit older
And I realized they was the crazy ones
But there was nothing I could do or say to try to change it
Cause that's just the way the ad game was
They said I can’t make ads about aliens no more
They ain't say I can't make raps about aliens no more (ahh)
