You may know Tom Fishburne, a.k.a. the Marketoonist, who keeps us in stitches with his humorous takes on serious marketing, customer experience, and technology issues. Tom will once again be keynoting at The MarTech® Conference in San Jose April 3-5.
I’m really looking forward to his new presentation, Look! Squirrel! Beyond the Shiny New Thing to Sustained Organizational Change. Tom will enlighten us as he makes us laugh at the way we think about adopting new martech, overcoming fear, and driving transformation at our companies.
Keeping with tradition, here’s your opportunity to be recognized for your own sense of humor and participate in the MarTech Cartoon Caption Contest. In 2017, we received more than 150 silly, inspiring and nutty entries, and this year we’re hoping to really get the creativity flowing.
Submit your creative caption for the above cartoon by Thursday, March 14 by 11:59 pm PST.
Tom will share the best entries in San Jose on Friday, April 5 as he unveils the official version of his cartoon during MarTech’s closing presentation. If you win, you’ll get an on-stage shout out and receive a framed version of the cartoon with your caption, autographed by Tom.
(Best case scenario, you’re actually at MarTech to accept your prize and bask in the praise of your peers… but if not, we’ll ship it to your home or office!)
While I’m not eligible to win (nor are any MarTech Conference employees or family members), we did come up with some captions to get things rolling. Here are the best of what we got:
“At least it’s still less dumb looking than the Google Glass.”
“That’s great, but I asked for coffee and a bagel.”
“Ever since 5G, Robert’s … changed.”
For the record, here’s the original MarTech Marketoonist cartoon from 2017:
