That's the idea behind our upcoming ad campaign, revealed here in a special sneak preview for the BAM blog faithful. (The unfaithful can see them in a few weeks in the subway and at Atlantic Terminal.) As you can tell, the ads are based around actual surveillance photographs taken of bonafide BAM audience members, fans, and employees at the very moment they are seized by their irrepressible BAM memories. We think that they provide unambiguous evidence that BAM moments can happen anywhere, and to any of us at any time. Crosswalks, baseball fields, subway cars—the ghosts of BAM past don’t discriminate.
That said, if a BAM moment happens to you, we suggest just going with it. Dodge the oncoming taxi, by all means. But forget about that runner rounding third (see below), because chances are you had another BAM moment when The Natural screened at BAMcinématek in 2009 and your next at-bat will be a doozy.
Let us know what you think. And check out this recent New York Times feature on the campaign for more on the nuts and bolts.
