BAM And Then It Hits You: Part Deux

Nattily-dressed fish-men piloting gondolas, horn-headed cyclops, Cate Blanchett: all perfectly reasonable things to daydream about. But no place could be prouder to inspire those daydreams than BAM! Here are six more ads from our BAM And Then It Hits You campaign, hitting a subway car near you today. Many thanks to our friends at mcgarrybowen.

  1. Perhaps a small point but hopefully one worth mentioning: I'm a native New Yorker, a Brooklyn resident, and a lifetime devotee of the arts. I also happen to love BAM and I enjoy seeing it improve year after year. But I'm disappointed that this campaign -- like so many "omnibus" ad campaigns in the city that are meant to show an array of New Yorkers -- is marked by a conspicuous absence of any Asians.

    We're not only a vibrant, active, group of participants in the visual and performing arts community, but we're incredibly strong patrons as well. It would be nice to have a shout out once in a while from an organization that we as a group so dearly enjoy. With representation comes respect -- mutually!
