Guinness Beer had this famous "Animals Stealing A Guinness" campaign running from 1930 till 1982.
However it was the toucan that stole the show, and was the most popular part of this 52-year-running brand awareness campaign!
Some other fun animal Guinness ads include:
- The seal
- The bear
- The turtle
- The crocodile
What a fun, effective, and frame-able ad campaign!
The economy is an ever-shifting system that keeps evolving with technology.
Destruction of one job is the creation of another.
It's almost impossible to look forward and predict the next set of occupations.
Sometimes a picture can say MANY words...and it takes your brain far less work to understand it.

Or this image that instantly conveys that social media platforms can potentially be like drugs. A great visual statement.
The image alone here does most of the talking in this 1963 Whopper ad. It has 4 pieces of copy I really like:

I kind of want a Whopper now 👀

In this great interview Stephen Wolfram says the best prompt engineers for things like ChatGPT are "Expository Writers."
He goes on to explain that an "Expository Writer" is somebody who can explain stuff really well.
I've been seeing that people who are great at writing are also great at getting AI to do things for them.
I use ChatGPT, Google Bard, and other AI tools every single day. I just made a quick AI video course on:
- Over-hyped features.
- Features I use every day.
- I show you how here (members only video)
