Hey Boise: Portland’s Talking Smack

Or, more specifically, the Portland Advertising Federation’s Rosey Awards:

Rosey Awards Website

This year, the PAF decided to have a little fun with the Rosey Awards website, throwing in a little ‘Our City is Better Than Your City’ attitude.

And Boise was one of their targets.

Now, the question to you, dear readers in Boise and beyond: Are you going to put up with this type of verbal abuse?  Should we engage in a war of words with our colleagues in Portland and beyond?

I say no.  And here’s what I suggest you do:

Make it better.  The strategy, the creative, the plan, the placement.  All of it — make it better.

If it’s good, make it better.  If it’s great, make it better.

The year is half over.  Now’s your chance to step it up.

When it comes down to it, the best way to get back at our friends and Portland is through the work.  That’ll be the best way to bitch-slap those granola-loving bike-riding hippies back into their drizzle-dodging cubicle world.

Oh, and PDX folks, nothing but love for you, nothing but love 😉

    My god I couldn’t have said it better myself.

    New York? Really? Ha!

  2. Oh…. and they’re just bitter because their graphic designer for the Rosey awards site skipped the week in Photoshop class where they learned how to use the “Polygonal Lasso” tool effectively. LOL

  4. Hey PDX, “Goodbye” is spelled with an E on the end! I guess you were too excited about dropping the F-bomb on San Francisco to check elementary spelling.

      1. Okay, turns out I’m the one who was too excited to do the elementary checking. Good… grief.
