VJ’s Random Reveal: Dan Dalton

Agency News

What’s our agency personality? We are absolutely committed to seeing our clients succeed. If you want more detail, it really depends on whom you ask. This month, we caught up with Dan Dalton, our director of digital and data. 

What trend do you hope makes a comeback?

I would love it if the excitement around music videos would make a comeback in popular culture. I grew up watching MTV and often the music video was considered an inseparable piece of that art when a new song was released. Occasionally there is a bar/restaurant that features music videos on the TV and I find I can pay attention to nothing else.

What is your most overused word or phrase?

“You’re my best friend.” I am constantly saying this to my wife, kids and dog. They are all equally my best friends. :)

If someone were to write a movie about you, where would the opening scene take place?

The opening scene would take place in a dusty hole-in-the-wall St. Louis bar with a killer local band. Think about Road House but with better food… the name is Dalton.

On a Sunday morning, you can find me…

In a tornado of toddler clothes and Cheerios trying to get the kids ready for church. If I have failed on the previous objective, then you can find me at an early brunch with a bloody mary.

If you were a pasta shape, what shape would you be and why?

Toasted ravioli. If you’re going to be pasta, you might as well be fat and happy. 

You find yourself on stage at a talent show. What are you performing?

Stand-up comedy. In addition to MTV, the other channel I constantly watched as a kid was Comedy Central. From when I was very young, I looked forward to hosting the eighth grade talent show. When I finally arrived in the eighth grade, I found out the talent show had been discontinued. I lobbied and was successful to get the talent show reinstated so I could be the host.And that’s determination, Dan Dalton style.
