The Parrot Ads

AJ Broadbent—photographer, designer, sign maker—posted the Parrot newspaper ads on his often updated food blog Montana Eats. He took all the photos for the new ad campaign.  Allegra designer Marcy Vanek did the copy and layout on these.

UPDATE: Allegra Shoots The Parrot


Aha! After I made the Parrot post yesterday I went back to work and Marcy was working converting all the photos from RAW to usable CMYK tif files. While she was at it I snagged these shots taken by Archie.

The young lady in the picture is NOT McKenzie, but an imposer. Although McKenzie and I have been summer regulars at the Parrot (end of the bar, two black coffees and the ice cream of the day in a dish, two spoons) anyone with half a mind should be able to see right through the artifice of this photo. You see, there is a blaring misstep in the mise en scene: the Parrot serves beef chili and I am a vegetarian. No vegetarian would ever knowingly order BEEF chili.

See the new Parrot ads in the IR in coming weeks.

Navana and I appear to be on a date, we are faking.

Allegra Shoots The Parrot


Marcy and AJ shot some ad photos for the new owners of the Parrot on Monday. I got to skip out on work and drink a grape phosphate and fake-eat some beef chili to stand in as a customer. Unfortunately some real customers came in and stole my thunder.
