I’m seriously not trying to advocate for Google Chrome (after all, for some mad reason I can’t figure out, it garbles punctuation on this site sometimes), I’m just a sucker for their ad campaigns. There’s something in the music. The spots are simple and beautifully done, and in a minute and a half are capable of extracting more emotion than most full-length films. Or maybe I’m just a sucker. I dunno. But I think there’s room for appreciating a good ad campaign for its artistic merit while ignoring the product being marketed. Down with Google! (Up with their splendid commercials)
