once you start reading one of his ads you cannot put it down until you've read the whole thing. No matter how long.

And he loathes visual puns, which i do too.

he's setting up his own awards show by the way.

He also did fake ads for an 8% alcohol beer brand that didn't exits. The ads were so successful that they set up a company after the ads.

Neil French is proof that long copy isn't dead. But it breaks my heart to see a clearly gifted writer obsessed with such a cruel 'sport' as bullfighting where an animal is killed mercilessly and a spectacle is made out of it.
