Flipping through the Netflix choices last week and noticed that Art & Copy was finally available for streaming and jumped on the chance to watch the documentary. The film focuses the “creative revolution” of the Advertising world in the 1960’s and gives you an inside look on the real-life “Mad Men” who coing such phrases as I Want My MTV, Think Small, Just Do It, and Got Milk?
ART & COPY introduces the cultural visionaries who revolutionized advertising during the industry s golden age in the 1960s by creating slogans to live by and ads we all remember. You may have never heard of them, but pop pioneers Lee Clow, Hal Riney, George Lois, Mary Wells, Jeff Goodby, Rich Silverstein, Phyllis K. Robinson, Dan Wieden, and David Kennedy have changed the way we eat, work, shop, and communicate often in ways we don t even realize. From the introduction of the Volkswagen to America to the triumph of Apple Computers, ART & COPY explores the most successful and influential advertising campaigns of the 20th century, and the creative minds that launched them.
It is a terrific insight on some of the most successful campaigns in recent history and if nothing else, gives you another reason to say “Where’s The Beef” out loud one last time.
