Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein have been so effective and successful at advertising because they are suspicious of it ("All Right, Who Turned the Advertising World Inside Out?" by Warren Berger, May 5). They only entered the field as a last resort, to earn a paycheck. As a result, they were not schooled in advertising and brainwashed with the standard way of doing things. So instead of viewing advertising in the traditional way, they look at things from an unconventional, offbeat angle, and that has worked well for them; their approach seems fresh and innovative.

May 5, 1996 | Warren Berger, Warren Berger's last piece for the magazine was on Discovery Channel founder John Hendricks
It began, as things often do in advertising, with a betrayal. Joanna Hughes Brach, who oversees advertising for Polaroid, the Cambridge, Mass.-based photographic company, was almost out the door for a maternity leave last summer when she received a phone call. Her New York advertising agency, BBDO, informed her that it was ditching Polaroid just as the company was planning to start its biggest campaign in decades. To make matters worse, BBDO was pursuing archrival Kodak.

A television commercial lures visitors to Muir Woods, turned into an amusement park where children can "enjoy realistic forest fires every seven minutes." A radio ad urges listeners to buy homes in "Wavy Acres," a pristine preserve once known as Marin Headlands National Park. Listeners can feel their eyebrows rise as they wonder if they've missed something. When were these treasures sold? They can be excused if they think the ads are real. After all, they were done by pros.

They are both subversives and establishmentarians, salesmen and entertainers, people who believe they are in the most exciting business on Earth. They are the giants of modern advertising, and they have some alluring tales to tell. As recorded by Doug Pray in his dishy new documentary "Art & Copy," the men and women who created the most memorable ads of our time, such as "Where's the Beef?" and "Got Milk?," tell rich, meaty war stories that prove the point made by the legendary Mary Wells, who says that people like her were "born with a gift for sensing what will turn you on."

If Martin Pedroza was unhappy before Saturday about being without a Breeders' Cup mount, he isn't anymore. With the big names away in Florida, the 27-year-old Panamanian won the first six races on the program at Santa Anita. Pedroza's bid for a sweep fell short when Forlock, a 10-1 shot, finished sixth in the afternoon's finale.

Once again, there are smiles all around in Puerto Rico. Mister Frisky, the pride of the island, remains perfect. A 4-5 favorite in Saturday's $136,550 San Rafael Stakes, the 3-year-old ran his record to 15-0 with an impressive, wire-to-wire victory over Tight Spot and five others. A people's choice in Puerto Rico--2,000 came to say goodby when he left for California--Mister Frisky will try to equal Citation's record-setting streak in the Santa Anita Derby the first Saturday of April.
