Any copywriter would recommend alliteration

I suppose the title of my blog on advertising tips my hand on this blog’s orientation.

 

“They had their cynical code worked out.

The public are swine; advertising is the rattling of a stick inside a swill-bucket.”

– George Orwell, Keep the Aspidistra Flying (1936)

BBC News – Beastie Boys star Adam Yauch’s will bans music in ads

Late Beastie Boys member Adam Yauch has used his will to stop people from using his music or image in advertising.

Adam Yauch
The will was filed at Manhattan Surrogate court in New York earlier this week leaving instructions from the pioneering rapper, also known as MCA.

It read: “Notwithstanding anything to the contrary, in no event may my image or name or any music or any artistic property created by me be used for advertising purposes.”

Yauch died of cancer in May aged 47.

His will leaves his $6.4m (£4.1m) estate to his widow, Dechen Yauch, and their 13-year old daughter, and gives Dechen the right to sell and manage his artistic property as the executor of the estate.

The phrase “or any music or any artistic property created by me” was added in handwriting, according to Rolling Stone magazine which has seen a copy of the document.
