First of all, when you've got Nadav Kander shooting your print campaign, you just can NOT go wrong!
This type of prose writing was HUGE back in the late 80's into the 90's.
But you know what, it never goes out of style.
And the whole "live in the now" strategy is one of the most overly used (read "popular") in the history of advertising.
But you know what also? It never goes out of style, either.
Because it's always relevant no matter what decade you live in. It's a very simple humanistic statement.

I'm just glad the font size didn't start out large and end small like it was all the rage back in the day.
Although, it DOES have that kind of effect...

Beautifully done.

Can't say I agree, JPL.

To me it's like boardroom motivational posters
from the same period (also huge back then)
And here it is again...
and again and again again.

That's not an ad. THIS is an ad.

It's not that people do not read copy anymore. It is that people do not write copy worth reading anymore. This one, thankfully, is an exception.
