From “Whass-up!” to the Marlboro Man, Spuds Mackenzie to orange juice for breakfast, Chicago’s advertising companies have given birth to some of the most seminal marketing campaigns ever. This snappy jingle of a documentary reveals, with intriguing insights and wistful nostalgia, the confluence of Chicago’s creative talent—from Leo Burnett to Bob Scarpelli—and the transformative ways that they’ve shaped popular culture. With post-screening panel.
