Tim Burrowes has had a busy week. He’s been on telly. Mumbrella his blog about “Everything under Australia’s media & marketing umbrella: BETA” has been chockfull of happy clappy (and unhappy slappy) goodness. He’s been all Warhol like and aggregated and synthesised us some canned action on the viral video soupy saga that was “The Girl With The Jacket”
- Agency accused of “screwing” the industry over girl-with-the-jacket fake
- Clothing label owns up
- Boss of the agency puts forward positon on the terrirory between deceit and conceit and says truth is overrated in gaining effectiveness.
The chit chat about this campaign has moved over into some quite heated territories at times. I find pomposity and hubris to be rather astonishing. And funny. And compelling like a car crash is compelling.
And it’s never quite as feisty as when the ‘social media experts’ biff it out with each other.
I reproduce this almost in it’s entirety:
Zac Martin is a remarkably young, talked-about Australian blogger. He writes an excellent blog here.
Laurel Papworth is a remarkably grumpy social media stormtrooper. But she writes a writes a very good blog here.
Got it so far? Good.
So Laurel doesn’t like Seth, because Seth doesn’t allow comments on his blog, which she thinks is bad. So Seth tried to be nice, and sent Laurel a lovely message on her blog. But Laurel was mean to him, put her fingers in her ears, and told him she couldn’t hear him. Then Zac stepped in.
Now you can watch this…
It’s just an everyday tale of life in the Aussie blogosphere…
