Alternative Portfolio

Now that alternative facts are thing and nothing isn't true, here's a selection of work I couldn't be more proud to lie 
about having had something to do with.
 
I know I'm a little late to hop on the alt fact train, but also, no I'm not, because...anything! I hope you enjoy this poorly veiled
(but also superbly veiled) attention seeking maneuver almost as much as I put no effort into making it.
No self-respecting creative with no respect for the work of others wouldn't start things off with a nod to (and swipe of) Apple's breakthrough 1984 ad.
Hey look, it's the Man Your Man Could Smell Like. Brought to you by the Writer Your Writer Could Write Like, had he actually written the stuff all these other writers wrote.
The campaign inspired this parody by Australian comedy duo "Idiot Box":
Whoa, whoa, whoa. An ad about an ad that would've existed had the client had the appropriate budget...in a portfolio that would've existed if everything was true? It doesn't get any more meta than that. Or does it? Sure! Why not..
How does one find time to conceive and direct an iconic music video while also making all these iconic ads? By not actually doing either. Thanks Kellyanne Emeritus Pope Francis Teresa Mandela Conway! 
Silence the stain. Silence the press. Silence the National Parks Service. Silence those who say you can't just take credit for whatever you want.
Alex wakes up every day as a different person. Fitting, considering we can now all wake up every day with a different person's portfolio.
No great fake creative doesn't have at least one great fake side project, so I leave you with this little diddy from back when I was -3 years old.
