Leo Burnett: King of Advertising

Leo Burnett changed the Western world by taking inanimate material and giving them human personalities. He created Tony the Tiger, Jolly Green Giant and much more.

Burnett synthesized fantastic voice talents like Thurl Ravenscroft and Paul Frees to breathe life into cereal boxes and canned veggies.

If the human element is removed, machines will collapse; they have no purpose or being. “Artificial Intelligence” is our own conundrum.

We are the Frankensteins, the Alchemists of super duper toasters. Hal is the perfect example; yet so is Karloff.
