Gabe Leydon Freak Out a Room Full of Media People

Do you hate TV ads?

Gabe Leydon does, too. Except, unlike you, Gabe Leydon buys lots of TV ads: He runs Machine Zone, the game company behind all of those Mobile Strike ads with Arnold Schwarzenegger you’ve been seeing for the past few months. And the Kate Upton Game of War ads you saw last year, too.

Almost all brand advertising is nothing more than a slush fund that feeds lazy advertisers, publishers and networks, who want to avoid accountability

See for yourself, and draw your own conclusions.

About Menno Lindeblad

Founder at Amsterdam Today, Paradigmata Media, Freelance Journalism, Executive Business and Club33. As a strategist, publisher and online content specialist, I believe media is serious business for the creative minds that wish to succeed the most in this digital age. My professional life is dominated by two activities: trying to understand things and to put things in motion. The first has lead to various columns and articles. The second has put on the path of entrepreneurship. I have always worked at the intersection of journalism, media and technology. I founded Freelance Journalism with the Mission to be the No 1 source media positions trusted by candidates & recruiters. There is nothing greater than finding opportunities for smart mediaprofessionals and it’s a fantastic process that i feel lucky to participate in. My goal is for Amsterdam Today to be the place where business owners turn to get inspired, to compare notes, to ask questions, and to learn from one another’s mistakes. We pride ourselves on adhering to the highest journalistic standards. All editorial decisions are made independently by our newsroom team of editors and reporters. Do you ever laugh, cry, get angry or inspired? You’ll fit right in. Got a pitch, tip or leak? Contact me via email: M.Lindeblad@AmsterdamToday.eu Contact: Website | Facebook | More Posts
