I read Shop-Eat-Surf at every opportunity, and I waited too long to sign up for the Executive Edition. It’s timely, relevant and clearly “from the industry, for the industry.

There is no better publication that I am aware of that is so accurate and on top of any news and developments in our industry. I personally recommend it to many people that want to know and understand more about our industry. For the most part, shop-eat-surf.com gets the stories first. As a matter of fact, I require all the executives in our company to read it.

PacSun launches national ad campaign with help from brands

PacSun, with help from a dozen action sports brands, is launching a national advertising campaign with the tagline “Dress Irresponsibly.”

 

I saw a preview of an early mockup of a commercial at PacSun headquarters a few weeks ago, and it is pretty unique. The commercial mixes fashion shots with action sports sequences set to Frank Sinatra’s “Call Me Irresponsible.”

 

The song definitely catches one’s attention because it’s incongruous with action sports and teens. The action sports sequences were around the irresponsible theme as well and not reminiscent of typical action shots in magazines.

 

I haven’t seen the final version however.

 

Brands participating include Hurley, RVCA, Fox Racing, Volcom, Quiksilver, Roxy, DC, O’Neill, Billabong and Element.

 

About 20 athletes are featured including Rob Machado, Bucky Lasek, Chris Pfanner, Nick Dompierre, Levi Brown and Ryan Dungey.

 

The campaign highlights summer and back to school styles and ads will appear on television, print and digital platforms.

 

The TV commercials are directed by So Me of Ed Banger Records.
