ECD Blake Ebel, aka the Love Guru, talks sex on the “Today Show.”
April 17, 2009
“Teenagers are curious about sex.”
My creative partner at Euro RSCG Chicago, Blake Ebel appeared on the Today Show this morning talking about the very topic I had spent my last story discussing: sex(ism) and race(ism) in advertising.
Total coincidence. But understandable, given all the hubbub of late. The Today show isolated two spots in particular: the risque’ Spongebob Squarepants mashup for Burger King and hottie chef Padima’s burger eating orgy for Hardees.
I’d written about these and other fast food commercials that seemed to be hitting below the belt -wink, wink, nudge, nudge.
Blessed with suburban good looks, it’s easy to see why Today show producers opted to interview Blake. He comports himself well. Check out his 15 seconds of fame:
