Have you found yourself clapping at your iPod lately when a great song finishes? If so, it's best time you get yourself down to the 'WKSU Folk Festival.' This clever campaign takes the classic form of early 20th century posters, in which the Marcus Thomas ad agency has worked in some 21st century humor.

The point of these 'WKSU Folk Festival' ads is that they make a good point about the public's distance from true music. These posters will have you realizing that MP3 players, computers, iTunes, YouTube, Myspace and Facebook just aren't enough to create a truly rockin' musical experience.
