Blog: Olly WehringBill Hicks - Ever the Advertising Prophet

Olly Wehring | 28 July 2010

Writing up the story today (28 July) about 901 Silver's new advertising campaign reminded me of the late, great Bill Hicks.

Take a look at the first advert - be quick, because I don't think it'll be around for too long.

As I (too) gasped and shrieked "You can't do that", I remembered Hicks' take on what would be the zenith of advertising (headphones on if you're in the office, mind).
