everybody banner I spent a lot of time in the gym when I was teenager. Initially it was more of a social thing, but slowly exercise became a way of life for me.

While It Might Look a Little Like a Duck

It's misguided to simply drop the word 'advert' from the marketing lexicon, replace it with 'content', and then progress in just the same way, producing something that's as much a brand-centric message as it ever was.
