Who else did Jagermeister use for this series?

Is there a site which has the full series of these Jagermeister ads which I would date (given they feature Klaus Nomi) as late 70s/early 80s? They appear to be from the US, but perhaps they're on a German-language site.

Social Media Marketing

Traditional marketing says blanket your market with repetitious ads for the new people who haven't seen it. I have a project I want to promote and attract attention to. Although I won't send out a tweet or a post every minute, should I make repetitious posts on Social Media too? Is there a good balance?

What's a good Wordpress Advertising plugin that is lite on coding?

I am looking to monetize my WP self-hosted site with custom banner/sidebar ads. (Not google ads) Ideally it would work out to be one of a dozen or so ads that appear randomly on every page/post refresh. I'd like something with little to no coding involved. What are the best plugins?

Do I need a library card?

I want to find a full-page ad in the New York Times from a few days after hurricane Sandy that thanked a bunch of corporations. (Maybe it was the WSJ?) Is this sort of information available still? Do libraries archive the ads in a searchable form? I haven't been to an actual library in years -- so I'm not looking forward to sifting through microfilm, but maybe I have to? Is there a digital record of newspapers I'm missing out on?

What was that old (80s/90s) British TV ad with the boy who comes home from a camping trip and says "Pretty exhausting, really"? I'd like to find it on YouTube if possible, but even knowing the name of the product would help.

How ad-free can a popular YouTube video be?

I hear that creators of very popular YouTube videos get paid for advertising. Normally they would welcome this, but I'm curious about what options a person has for keeping ads off their YouTube video, especially in the case where the video has been viewed very many times. Is it possible to keep ads off such a video altogether? And what would an effort to minimize advertising do to a video creator's ability to earn money (from YouTube) by posting videos on YouTube? (I imagine it would destroy it, but I don't know for sure.)

Edgy mission statements from Gen-X-targeting 90's ad agencies?

I'm looking for mission statements from 90's advertising agencies. Specifically, super "edgy" ad agencies that targeted the Gen-X demographic. The more over the top and "extreme" the better. Worst-case scenario, I'd love to know where to start looking for them myself.

Promoting E-Commerce Sites

Which channels of advertisement do you use to promote your e-commerce business? Also, what is the percentage of your advertisement budget divided by your annual turnover? Some candidates that I can think of: Free subway papers, flyer distribution in the street, regular daily newspapers, radio ads, tv commercials, google ads, google products, bing shopping, facebook ads, twitter promoted ads, backlinks in other websites, SEO to raise in organic search results, word of mouth from satisfied customers. If you use several vectors of advertisement, most of which I tried to list above, do you think they are the optimum combination? Thank You!

Can you identify these classic Infocom fonts?

What are the fonts used in these iconic Infocom ads: 1 2? I'm particularly interested in the 'Many are the doors...' font and the 'Apple II...' font from 1, and the 'WE'RE WRITING' font from the second. I can find stuff that's close with WTF et al, but not the same.
