Take a break from your stressful climb to the top and spend some of the relatively little time you have left on Earth with this On Hold Marketing. The humor is sure to temporarily ease the bitterness in your heart and dilute the acidic taste of bile that splashes into your mouth all the livelong day. Glad we could help.  

In the next few minutes, you could eat something sharp that pierces the roof of your mouth and pokes your brain in that unsettling way sharp food does.  

You might accidentally read half a pamphlet about botulism before remembering that pamphlets make you nauseous. 

Or a prominent local weatherman might cross your path just as you're learning to throw a carpenter's axe.

But while you're watching the videos below, we'll guarantee that none of that stuff will happen. 

So, enjoy our Silver ADDY Award-winning humor in the top video and our Bronze ADDY-Award winning work in the bottom video, or take your chances. Good luck. 


Oh, sure, when your On Hold Marketing is crammed with as much mid-quality humor as this production is, it can be tougher than a cheap steak to pick out a favorite hunk. But that didn't deter Dixie Restoration Depot president Matt Hartzog. “I’m especially fond of the trucker hat bit," he said. "It weaves humor and product information together in a way that I’d like to explore further in the future.”

And what a future it'll be! Although, we'll probably all be living underground. 

Hit the magic "go" button on the video below and listen to Amy and Scott do their voiceover thing all over Scott's copy.  

Scott channeled the voice and somewhat grumpy personality of patriot Paul Revere for these five radio spots. Amy provided the tag and got the horse to react right on cue. Scott also wrote the spots using a digital quill and inkwell, often referred to as a "computer." 

Nothing communicates the warm smells of the season quite like wacky On Hold Marketing. So, gather the family 'round your digital device, hoist your mugs of 120-proof egg nog, and let this mildly disturbing audio wash over you like an unavoidable avalanche of discomfort and confusion. Good luck.

In the spring of 2017, we created a humorous five-spot radio campaign for Ray's Trash through the agency BusinessVoice. It was the only radio campaign to win the 2017 Platinum MarCom Award. Scott wrote the copy and provided the main voiceover. Amy kicked in with the tag. After the session, they both smelled like hot garbage. Listen to the spots in the video below. 

When a client writes to tell us, "I'm impressed by how creative you are," and refers to our writing and voiceover as "amazing" and "absolutely great," one of two things is about to happen: 1) the client will soon be arrested for sniffing glue, or 2) we're about to spend the next few days floating along on a fluffy, white, congratulatory cloud of reassurance. 

We've not seen the name "Chris Hamann" in the local police blotter yet, so it looks like we get to enjoy thing #2. Chris is the President of Lakeland Auto and Marine in Port Clinton, Ohio, and he did, in fact, share those swell compliments with Scott after listening to the Humor On Hold audio below. Scott wrote the copy and provided the main voiceover. Amy pops in at the :33 mark to say hello. Don't be frightened by the robots. 

We were happier than a slice of pie to earn several 2017 MarCom Creative Awards: a Platinum award for the Ray's Trash radio campaign, a Gold award for International Translating Company's On Hold Marketing, and another Gold for this one - the Humor On Hold for SystemSeven in Austin, Texas. Amy and Scott are the voices. Scott wrote most of the copy. He also earned an Honorable Mention in the Pro Bono category for his work on the Adrian Music Boosters' website. We challenge you to give all the work a look and a listen without becoming emotionally attached. 

Scott wrote the copy for and starred in a 10-spot campaign for Revere. He continues to wear the character's scarf to this day, wrongfully believing it lends an air of "old-school flamboyance" to his normally bland wardrobe. Amy's voiceover is featured on the tags. Show a little patriotism for once and take a look at these compilation videos.

Hold onto your cones! Amy and Scott are about to discover a new ice cream flavor, and the excitement may prove too much to bear. Scott wrote the copy. Amy provided the disbelief.
