Adland - all the adnews not fit to print.
This arrived from the youngguns.:BMPDDB's Webster Tries To Buy Illicit Street-Cred The Founding Father Of London's Sharpest Ad Shop Solicits Street-Gangs.
Don't miss John Webster, Founding Father of BMPDDB London hangin' with his home-boys in the hood. Webster is the star in the spot titled "Dance Moves", one of five executions in YoungGuns' "Legends of Advertising" campaign.
Web icons don't die, they just get auctioned away.
Forget e-Bay. Auctions for dot-com bombs are 2001's premier flea market events.
What's more, souvenirs emblazoned with deceased e-trepeneur logos like Webvan, Kozmo and Pets.com have become hot new advertising collectibles.
New topic for Adland - "circulating on the web". Which is just a long winded way of saying 'viral'. Often funny emails are sent around with piss takes of famous campaigns/spoof's or jokes regarding our loved and much hated profession and it's product - advertising. Often advertising itself is a pisstake or joke and becomes a much loved and passed around viral.
I thought it would be nice to post them.
Here's a coke-joke that just landed in my inbox.
Seems like an Oscar and a few lead roles was all it took to leave actor Ben Affleck drunk with star power.
After Affleck voluntarily checked into the Malibu-based Promises rehab facility for treatment of alcohol abuse (with the help of former occupant, Charlie Sheen) , Samuel Adams beer dropped him as a celebrity pitchman.
Considering his lead role in "Pearl Harbor," he might prefer kamikazes to beer. Nevertheless, reports of Affleck's activities prior to his decision to sober up would hardly encourage one to "drink responsibly."
If the upcoming sequel to teen sex comedy, "American Pie" involves pie-humping like the original, a promo tie-in with Lifestyle condoms would seem to be a perfect fit. What's more, it could help protect millions of easily influenced teen boys from direct exposure with fruit filling. Unfortunately, the deal to air a Universal Pictures produced TV spot just went bust.
Lee Tamahori - director of new zealand spots and the fab tearjerker (I cried like a baby - just don't tell anyone) "Once were warriors" has just agreed to direct the next Bond film.
It will be shot in London. Betcha didn't see that coming!
Since I'm so pleased that Adland is back online, I thought I'd throw a little party. You are all invited over to Justine's , 101 2nd street, between 1st avenue and A, on Saturday night at 10:30. The silver backroom is ours kids. I thought Justine's would be appropriate. Yes, it's an S&M bar, what else? Come and have a drink. I might spank you.
It's weird, it's poorly implemented, but fuck it looks interesting.
I quote: "howellhenryland is an interactive virtual reality that is our integrated web presence, extranet and intranet. It won't give you the same experience as walking around our unique working environment - but it's as close as we can get in the digital world."
What the hell is it?
