Who would you want leading your horde, Conan or Xena?

A comprehensive Australian study took on the issue "I can do anything you can do better." (thanks to SmartBrief on Leadership).

For those of you that I haven't already sent this: results!

A woman that I hired almost 30 years ago - and who climbed all the way to CEO of Publicis Dialog/San Francisco wrote:

Finally science to prove reality.
But will men believe it?"

What do you think?

Everything old is new again.

Today's blogs serve up a heapin' helpin' of old ideas applied as new solutions.

Casting dead celebrities in ads seems more than a little creepy to me, including this magazine campaign using look-alikes for Armstrong Floors (New York Times).

Then Citibank - in deep trouble - dusts off a shiny former slogan to better light the way back home (ADWEEK magazine).

And lastly, BMW/Spain hits the road with a copy of Jack Kerouak's On the Road (thanks to AdGabber).

But sometimes it works.

I think it was the incomperable Yogi Berra who said, "Nostagia just ain't what it used to be."
