Sometimes, unbelievable and random things inspire me. A better way to put it is, "Sometimes the oddest things crack me up." 😂 In this case, it was so funny because I got the best ChatGPT answer and wasn't even trying.
During a recent edit, I was scrolling through image after image, and one photograph I'd taken "jumped" out at me. I photographed my client's son sitting in a golf cart, winking into the camera while holding a freshly made cocktail. I get it; he was hamming it up for the camera. Winking at the camera works very well in this particular scenario. It is difficult not to smile when you look at the picture because he's just adorable.
I thought, "He could be in a 1970s Seagram's Ad. I'll do a quick ChatGPT search for some ad copy and maybe surprise them."
I'm still new at using AI as a tool, so I'm sometimes unsure what my prompt should say; I was winging it. I typed out something to see what I'd get.
"Write a campy 1970s gin ad with a reference to golf."
Getting better answers requires more learning. If you need help, this article is excellent, "11 Tips for Better ChatGPT prompts."
So, the result was different from what I was expecting. I was expecting a slogan, and instead, I got a complete script for a very campy commercial. I should have used the word "slogan" instead of "ad" in the prompt.
However, this result was excellent! To my delight, the best ChatGPT answer came up, which had me rolling with laughter. The ad reads so brilliantly that it inspired me to post this blog and create a parody of Logan's photograph.
I made the image look vintage, as if Logan posed for a 1970s Vanity Fair magazine ad. It would look faded, with a yellowish tint and grainy, and probably photographed with a 35mm camera loaded with 400 ASA film.
I still needed a slogan, though. "There has to be a good slogan in this script," I thought. After all, this is the best ChatGPT answer I've ever gotten.
I found one that worked well with this image. Actually, I found many that worked well.
And finally, tell me what you find in the answer below. Do you see a better slogan than I do?
Write a campy 1970s gin ad with a reference to golf.
