I thought the French's mustard ad would be the trippiest food-related work of the week. Not even close, thanks to this loopy Dixie campaign by Howard, Merrell & Partners. Food speaks! It wants to be served on (or in) Dixie-brands products! That's two exclamation points so far, so you know I'm eating up this campaign! That was a bad pun, I know, but I think the spots are warping my brain. The guy who plays the hamburger looks a bit like Brian Dennehy, but this all-beef fatty's gravel-voiced delivery has a gut-wrenching, punch-drunk resonance heretofore unheard on screens large or small.
