"Hot Enough for Ya?"

Ah, the boring weather/sports conversations in the elevator with people you don't know. I just put on a gameshow host voice and say with a cheesy smile, "Yes. It certainly is! And how about those Mets?"

Bad segue alert!!!

Speaking of the weather, Bryant Heating and Cooling apparently found a bunch of money to throw at some CGI, featuring their mascot Bryantman doing battle with the evil Scorcher.

Never was into comic books. I was more of a Mad and Cracked kid. But this is pretty good. I mean, how do you sell Heating and Cooling? It's for hot weather and cold weather. What are you gonna do, show some happy family keeping cool or warm indoors? Boring. Why not play it up in a fashion that will have people remembering your name? And of course, as is now advertising law, there's an accompanying microsite for the kids, where you can download PDFs of coloring pages.

You can catch the winter version of this comic book theme here, where Bryantman battles Bone Chiller, who's got this pretty cool (ha!) Glam-Punk thing going on.

No idea on the agency and no, I'm not being paid to say nice things about Bryant.

Agency is MarcUSA who prove with their website that if you have to do the Flash thing on your agency site, you can do it differently than the now-too-trendy "just TRY to find our links" style.

  • And you know how much I love those "Just TRY to find out links" sites.

    Great name for them, btw

  • On the other hand, that MARC site plays loud trendy music. Which is a Toadian Cardinal Sin

  • Yeah, Toad - I quickly grew tired of that and hit the mute button. But it's part of that hip factor that also requires their walking guy to wear Chuck Taylors.

  • Ask your interweb friends, Jetpacks.
    Music on a website to them is like ellipses in a headline to us ;)

  • I dislike music when it starts automatically and then I can't find where to turn it off. Of course, perhaps I shouldn't go poking around websites with my volume turned up to 11.

    I like that commercial... although I at first thought you were posting the one from that insurance company.
