become someone else

Are there days when you'd love to become someone else?  (I can hear you shouting, "Hell yeah" as I type this! Yeah, me too.)







"Become Someone Else" is a brilliant ad campaign from earlier this year by Lithuanian advertising agency, Love for Mint Vinetu, a book store that features classic literature.  Here's what they have to say about it:

"When one reads books, he/she starts living it and identifies (or not) with main hero. These print ads for the Mint Vinetu bookstore, which sells lots of classics, focuses on the idea of becoming someone else. And provokes people to try on different personas."


My favorite classic is Emily Bronte's one and only novel, Wuthering Heights, but it's a sad, tragic story.  My own life is so much happier than Cathy's ever hoped to be, there is no way I'd trade places with her! What about you?  Any classic stories you'd love to live for a day?

  3. The classics I loved were all the ones that really pushed the envelope of controversial thinking. I LOVE Brave New World (Huxley), Anthem (Ayn Rand), and Fahrenheit 451 (Bradbury)!!!
