Peter Brown's Third Ad: Community, Focused On Public Safety: Watch
Ah, another Houston ad on “safety”. Except this time Pete Brown is Sam Waterston and is going to rig up the Houston Police Department with satellite cameras that are going to track officers on the beat down to the nearest nanometer. I feel like I'm watching a commercial for Law & Order Houston.
Annise Parker “Only One”: Watch
There was an opportunity for Parker's ad campaign to get better from the mediocre first entry. That opportunity was not taken. It feels like I'm watching something in which the goal was to insert as many buzzwords that polled well into 30 seconds rather than something with a coherent theme or message.
For 1st class city, these ad campaigns are flying coach.
