And the Other Short Stories from a Long Career in Advertising

by David Random

About The Book

Defying Gravity is a witty, insightful, and behind the scenes of one of the world’s most influential businesses – Advertising. 

David Random takes us on an irrelevant and eye-opening tour of this wacky world as seen through the eyes of one whose career in the business spans five different decades.

In a featured interview, the online publication, MacTribe, ( describes David as “one of New England’s best advertising minds… endlessly creative and inventive,” and says, “David Random is not only brilliant, but also funny… a talented writer.”

David’s story-telling ability and keen eye for detail are constantly evident as he shares with us the best idea, the adventures, and the misadventures of a generation of folks who, rather than working for a living, decided to go into advertising.

So turn off the TV, sit back, and get ready to laugh as David tells you about…
…A $600 roll of toilet paper
… twinkies and condoms
… Truth in advertising
… Betty Crocker’s Secret
… A Diet Product called “AYDS”
… Porno Cakes
… The Retail Slut
… The Surprising cash cow behind the supermarket industry
… And why his award-winning TV commercial was banned in Boston.
