A shoe ad that moves

After watching this commercial, I’m not compelled to buy these shoes. But what I’m compelled to do is share my small and short thoughts about the commercial’s artistic videographics. Not often does a commercial tickle me pink, mainly because I get to myself first, but because much of our present commercials are redundant in scope.

I found the perspective of the commercial engaging, hip, cool, edgy, and any other word that would describe modern youth taste. The athletic person is running/walking on a sphere as the environment moves around them, thus making more prevalent the feeling of “connection” the person has with their environment. The shoe series is called Connect, so it makes perfect sense to portray such an interaction in this style/manner.

The commercial makes sense but I’m still not buying it. Not that I’m above marketing, because that most definitely would be a lie, but that thisĀ  product is something that I don’t care or know about.

Second year complete, phew.

Just finished and feeling relieved, akin to, although less perverted and vulgar, as taking a shit. Nervous being part of my disposition, i was doubtful of my results, well with minor hope. There were things that I’ve completed over the school year that I liked and other projects that caused me grief.
I was called in, after my loose presentation of semester’s work, and my teachers made clearer, although known, my strengths and weaknesses. They’ve passed me, under the condition that I work on weaknesses. I’m greatful that they did that because I felt my weaknesses to be so poor that it would prohibit me from continuing one of my main interests life. The light they shed upon what I already knew was from a different angle, and one of positive criticism, which does not come from my self-talk. So although that I knew already where I needed help, their perspective and approach affirmed in me a glimmer of hope, that my doubt extinguishes.

Now, this blog has been a stepping stone in the sphere of social media, but I can confidently say that continuing this blog might come to an end. My teacher who assigned this project wrote that I should continue. And yes, I think it would be great practice and it’s a continuance of my learning, but what I say and have said, I feel and think is of no great loss to the greater whole. What I think and feel is something I feel is only relevant to myself, and to communicate it to another would be in vain. A vainity that both inflate and deflate my ego, which I think does more harm than good. I prefer not to pop nor to fizz out.
With all being said, I’ve decided to throw the penny my teacher gave me into the well, in search for a meaning in the ripples.
