Ad-Vantage Week 3 - On legendary taglines & hidden meanings of brand symbols
Adgully returns this week with another round of the Ad-Vantage Quiz with Rajiv Gopinath. Last week, most respondents engaged with the question ‘Around the time the feminist movement was gaining steam, a young copywriter at McCann Erickson created this line, which was in the news this week.’ The answer to this question was L’Oreal’s ‘Because I’m Worth It’ campaign. The legendary tag line was created by Ilon Specht, a copywriter at McCann. The first week of March was the 50th anniversary of the line and has become part of the social fabric.
Brands, advertising messages and content have become so entrenched in our daily lives that we probably know more about them than we think. Every week we reach thousands of readers who are interested in knowing more about the business of brands. That’s why we decided to our engagement to a whole new level.

- Which trending app has rolls as its major feature?
Dispo. The new social media app by David Dobrik is inspired by a physical disposable camera. Dispo comes with the taglines ‘Capture and share moments’, ‘Live in the moment’ and ‘Be yourself’. What sets it apart from Facebook and Instagram is that any photo you take has to be through the app – and it “develops” the next day. You can’t edit the photos that you’ve taken with Dispo or upload your own photos.
One of Dispo's marquee features, "Rolls," gives it a unique social element. In the same way that you might pass around a disposable camera at wedding IRL, the Rolls feature allows multiple users to contribute pictures to the same album. If you take a photo for a shared Roll, each user will see if there's a photo developing, and will get to see that photo when it's ready. You can create a new public or private Roll by tapping the bottom of the camera, then clicking the plus sign in the top right corner. You can add people to Rolls to let them contribute
