I have thought for a while that Memes were an intresting improvisation on advertising, although it gets changed by every person it filters though. Here is a meme I found today on maiylah’s snippets blog. This one is actually from a piece of American Express ads (My life, My Card) that featured Ellen Degeneres, Kate Winslet and Tiger woods along with many other famous people and it asks them why they use AMEX. I think its cool that regular people want to fill this questionaire in, but Amex can’t be too happy that most people aren’t using Amex as the card they list. At least they are honest though… Here’s mine:
My Name: The Protagonist (sorry, I have to use aliases here)
