Well shock horror. Image IS important in advertising. Who would have thought it?
Okay, a few counter-examples were raised. People like John Webster and Lee Garfinkel didn't/ don't look creative. They just dressed like a normal bloke.
Yes. But I'd say, consciously or unconsciously, they still had an image. When John Webster wrote a script for a lager ad about a pool-playing bear, and presented it dressed as a normal bloke, he was subliminally communicating to his audience: "Look, I know a pool-playing bear sounds a bit wacky, but it will appeal to regular blokes, and you can trust me on that, because I am one."
