“Superbly written copy and extremely dry humor that was a perfect match for what could've been a dull subject. I laughed out loud at points, and when a caller starts with that reaction, it's a great way to start a conversation.”

Jim Hausfeld / Agency Creative Director & MARCE Awards Judge

Television Spot (Kingston Healthcare)

Wife: After my husband’s stroke, the hospital told us about their rehabilitation center. But then we found out we had a choice. We chose Kingston Rehabilitation of Perrysburg. For the same cost, Bob got so much more. The care was just wonderful. And he was able to come home quicker than we thought. Now he’s just as active as ever.

Announcer: One-on-one therapy, 24-hour care, a warm salt water pool - all in a beautiful new building. Kingston Rehabilitation of Perrysburg. The choice is yours.

Humor on Hold (Walter’s Goodyear)

Here at Walter’s Goodyear we carry quality tires from Dunlop, Pirelli, Michelin, Firestone, Cooper, Goodyear and other brands you know and trust. We hear tell that other tire dealers in town only sell large chocolate donuts and try to pass them off as tires. So don’t be fooled. Always bite your tires before buying them. If they’re delicious, they’re not real tires. A helpful tip from your pals at Walter’s Goodyear.

Marketing Blog Post (MadAveGroup)

Probably 20 years ago, I was at our town’s art museum watching a friend play music in one of the galleries. About half way through the set, my friend’s four-year-old son emerged from the crowd and walked up to him on the improvised stage.
 
What happened next has stuck with me all the years since.
 
My friend - interrupted during his job, in front of an audience - stopped what he was doing and gave his full, genuine attention to his young son.
 
No anger. No frustration or embarrassment. No hurriedly rushing the little boy back to his seat. Just pure love on display.
 
Contrast that warm memory with what we saw from Professor Robert Kelly and his wife after their children innocently walked in on their father’s live BBC interview in March of 2017.
 
The embarrassment. The apologies. His attempts to blindly push away his daughter. The mother’s frantic floor crawling.
 
Sure, an episode like that might throw anyone off his game a bit, especially if being interviewed on live TV. But because of the way both parents reacted, they kinda’ came off as jerks. And, purely from a marketing standpoint, how may that have affected Kelly’s personal brand and likability?
 
Goofy, unpredictable stuff like that happens now and then. About the only way you can prepare for it is by reminding yourself to be a human being, to roll with it, and to always look for the humor in unexpected situations. You should have heard the heartfelt “awwww” coming from the crowd when my friend reacted the way he did to his little boy.
 
For both you personally and your company, letting your human side show and embracing life’s wackier moments is likely only to endear you to your audience.
