Le roi est mort, vive le roi !

Stan Freberg is no longer with us. YouTube is full of examples of his work. His groundbreaking "funny ad" style broke seismographs on Madison Avenue. I share here one of his ads, and one of mine that his style inspired.

He was my hero.

If there's an even greater tragedy than losing a brilliant and original talent such as Stan Freberg, then it's in the fact that his passing has been noted by so few.

His ads for Banquet Frozen Dinners were practically a genre in itself.
