    i saw a jack in the box commercial once, where it showed jack in east la wearing a throw back with pieced up freeway i beams in the back ground and lowrider cars.

    at least the comedy central shit is decent.

    that shit they have on spike tv where that fool pops up and tags the corner of the screen is cool except the handstyle is gay.

    and remember toonami? they had straight bubble letters that were decent enough that my friend took a side name toom and used the letters off it.

    95% of graffiti style shit i see on products is horrible but you know some fool got paid scratch for doing it.

    Your friend is a lame ass.

    I noticed that shit too, I think its pretty good though. Good design, movement, & color.
    Spike TVs shit is just stupid, a log and a stencil that says Spike tv...woohoo.

    yeah i noticed that shit a lot now
    spike tv has a dude spray stenciling the logo on the bottom of the screen
    a mcdonalds commercial has a graff character following two girls around the city as well as computer generated peices on the walls
    even a sketchers add has a bunch of monkey kids in front of some production

    get paid

    anyone else seen that nike commercial with the stencils?

    it's all around the wall of a basketball court
    and the stencils are animated to give this huge
    story starring Vince Cater. The animators actually
    took the time to illustrate the overspray on a new stencil
    which made it work for me.

    and trust this coming from a guy who works in errr... 'where art meets marketing' (I dunno)

    Clients will like the real styles but go for what they already know.
    There was a billboard add with a full piece on it and I swear it looked
    like they pulled it from SubwayArt. Stock tips and all. Soccer Moms
    probably thought it looked 'cool' but ever writer I who saw it probably
    though... 'at least rip off something half decent and modern'

    maybe they are trying to appeal to a new audience, entice the urban fans of dave chappelle into watching other shows like the last word with colin whats his name, or the daily show, or whatever.

    it doesnt matter.
    clever marketing means money.

    there cashing in on some trendy design. its visually appealing, and urban raw at the same time (or at least thats what its goin for) theyll ride high on it like a trend, and most likely like kilo said drop it like a hot potato. Ive seen more and more laid over animated graffiti hip hop shit on tv, and design vids...its gettin used sooooo much.


    shit about the nike stencil ads...what about the fucking nike ad that was a billboard with a few throws on it?? for a nike shoe!? anyone see that?

    Judging by the look of the animation, I'd say its very well done and put together. But I think what your missing is that it probally just wasn't any schmoe off the street who put it together and tried make it look like graffiti, it was probally a design team, who most likely used to be writers. There's one of the ads (i only get comedy central, cartoon network and animal planet on my TV, so I've seen it alot) where it really quickly pans and there's a flash of a character, I'll bet that character would help decipher who's behind it. Or maybe not. I just think it's cool, gives hope to people who want to make it in the design world without compromising they're style.

    Don't hate the player, hate the game.
