I want to get into advertising. Because it’s something that I know I could be truly great at, earn a good living, and flex the creative muscles that every other desk (read: financially solvent) job has crushed.

So I think about ads a lot more now, and every time someone asks what my favorite is, I tell them about this. It’s brilliant. It defies expectations, namechecks a huge pop culture icon (Grand Theft Auto) and turns it on its head with a message that sticks with you, and manages to get you a little bit….well, emotional. It marks high on every level. Also, the guy in the shades looks like my brother, which is hella cool.
