You’re in a maze, there’s a breakthrough —
then stuff ‘recommended for you’;
you’re bouncing, soon you’ll be aloft —
try toilet paper that is soft.

This week on Litro Lab podcast, we bring an experimental piece that mixes poetry and music. In the era of streaming platforms, many of us rarely watch TV advertising. Yet, ads themselves keep popping up where we least expect them: on our social media feeds, emails, our phones… This musical poem explores the ways advertising has evolved, testing some unexpected boundaries along the way.
