Pretty fun ad. I don't care about the clothes, but the ad is good!

Dang, Youtube must have messed up. Instead of seeing whatever you guys saw, I saw some useless fluff designed by a clothing company to make their image seem hip and independent. I thought I was standing in Banana Republic.

Aw! I was about to sign up and momentarily pack my bags and build a boat to go live there…

Then I read the bottom of your post. :(

Been to their stores and factory outlets and everything.

Maybe you'd prefer a French airport? (Aeropostale)
Or that game you play on horseback with a mallet? (Polo, you'll never pay more for 200 tiny embroidered stitches)
Maybe an open seam? (The Gap)
Cowboys? (Chaps, damn that Ralph Lipschitz gets around)

It's selling an image and that image just happens to have a clothing line that goes with it. ;)

Just too cool for me.
Oh! Kohl's has it on sale this week… lol!

Aw, you yanks have no sense of fun :(

I would've loved to have been part of the advertising team that came up with this!
That's all I care about, not the clothes, not the image or anything else- just the fact that they made this cool vid.


I literally don't think in terms of buying a corporate image. Brand names and logos add NO extra value for me, usually it's the exact opposite -I like my stuff logo free and I want my OWN image, so I try to stay away from branding and stuff that's only “cool” and must-have because it's part of a theme that a clothing line is trying to market for that season.

…So that aspect of this ad probably doesn't have the same affect on me like it does on you guys?
I dunno. As a piece of silly narrative it's funny.

You're right, as a video clip it's fairly entertaining. Years of logos and contrived photo shoots have made me jaded toward advertisements.

When I first read this, I missed that you typed a “the.” That would have given this topic an interesting direction.
