A catch phrase will go here soon.

Should we run these Amp'D ads or not?


Update: Most folks think this ads are over the top. What do you think of this ad by True.com? On a side note, I’m starting to think that the Skyscraper ad was designed to fit full-body shots of models.

Interesting thing came up today… Amp’D mobile, an MTV backed cell phone company, is running racy ads on TV and on the web. We’ve had two or three complaints about the ad below. Now, these ads are running all over the web–and on TV–but I have to admit I think it’s a little racy and I was taken back when I saw them.

Also, is that Carmen Electra in the advertisements?

Hello, my name is Jason. Welcome to my blog on the interwebs. You can reach me on twitter @jason and by email at jason@inside.com. My Skype is jasoncalacanis, and my mobile phone is 310-456-4900.

I only pick up numbers I recognize, and in terms of emailing me, the best strategy is to write short, blunt and to the point requests. I can quickly respond to short messages, and many times I simply don't have the time to read five page pitches. In terms of taking meetings, I only do that after reviewing an actual product (not a business plan). So, the best time to ping me is when you have mockups or an alpha site. I don't read business plans, and I've never written one.
