This Space Is For Sale

The Wild, Wild World outside the [ box ]

Client: The Parisians (band)

Agency: DDB Paris

This is kind of clever. Though, I don’t really see why you would want to do it…I can see why you might sneakily download it on your friend’s computer and see if he/she notices…but other than that, it’s really about 2 minutes of fun before it gets old.

My personal favourite was “Kurt Cobain shot himself again after he heard this album.” Other than that, it’s a cheap thrill.

A French band that wishes they were as classic as the Ramones, as cool as The Strokes, and as arrogant as The Sex Pistols. Sorry guys - pranking iTunes doesn’t make you punk. Neither does soliciting the services of one of the biggest advertising agencies in the world. The music is decent but it hardly warrants the self-proclaimed “best band in the world” title.

Nice typography though. At least the case study looked the part…

Update: I was a little harsh. I checked them out further, and they are pretty decent as a band. But this execution felt a little weak and irrelevant. They sound like a mixture between The Arctic Monkeys and the Kooks, with a certain…je ne sais quoi. You know…because they’re French.
