An Axe to Grind

Zeitgeist has not yet dedicated the time to comment on the increasing number of campaigns involving elements of crowdsourcing, which has become popular enough that last year an agency launched dubbing itself the world’s first crowdsourced ad agency.

The latest campaign to leap onto the bandwagon is for Axe / Lynx, based on the insight that apparently the fairer sex, inscrutable as they are, “get bored easily”. Does this presumption say more about men though than women? One might also question whether corralling a mere 25 students together really constitutes ‘crowdsourcing’.

UPDATE: Great article about crowdsourcing from the Ogilvy New York Digital Labs blog, here.
