strawberry tadpole


“Before a Frog can expect to hop, first it must hope.” -Paul E. Wog


Once upon a time, in a New Jersey pond, there was a tadpole.


He was different from the others. And not just in the way he looked, but in the way he thought.


I just can’t wait to leap around and solve people’s problems. What about you?


He was VERY different from the others...


He had DREAMS. ...


And he dreamt of one day becoming a StrawberryFrog. The ONLY kind of frog that leapt around solving OTHERS problems with the greatest of ease.


EXIT


He knew he couldn’t stay in the same pond. If he did, he’d wind up like all the other tadpoles--content to simply RIBBIT until they CROAK. So, he left in search of CHALLENGES to make his dream come true.


COLLEG E POND


Success! He arrived in a place where he could learn the ways of advertising.

But the lessons stuck! He acquired campaign skills in everything from initial research to pitch presentation. Still, he longed for more and wished to apply his knowledge...


Venturing into client swamp, he sought a challenging, real-life fly to test his new skills.

CLIENT SWAMP

And boy, did he ever find one.


(okay, maybe the angry eyebrows are an exaggeration.)

A FIRE-BREATHIN’


DRAGON FLY!!!!!!

Though his skin was redish-blue, inexperience quickly taught why it’s not easy being green.


BUT, upon remembering his dream and his skills, he pushed forward without the normal resources of a StrawberryFrog.

(look ma’, no hands! or feet for that matter.)

He did it! The client’s pesky fly was outwitted and disposed of creatively. But then something

strange

happened...


POP!

POP!


POP!

POP!


Limbs! He was the closest to being a StrawberryFrog that he’d ever been...


...But with his tail still intact, his tale of growth continues...


That morning he looked out from the edge of the Hudson River...


...his dream waiting on the other side.
