Adland - all the adnews not fit to print.
Hey, people in Adland. You. You there. You know when things get out of hand and an ad rolls into serious bad taste territory, don't you? Don't you? Like this recent Badlander Suicide by car: now clean emissions Hyundai join Citroën & Audi. Well, you know, and you would never, right? Liar.
Oh lookie! It's a talking bear (which we've been assured never got harmed but just ate cookies the whole time.) And a guy wearing hipster sneakers. And the guy kills the bear. And then we're told you shouldn't have to feel like you killed mother bear for sneakers. Huh?
Is this a play on words in Spanish? Is this something only people in Madrid get? Or is it a really freaky way of getting attention?
Logan & Sons Director Paul Minor Goes Deep Into the Unconscious with “Sexsomnia” for Treats! Magazine
Darkness and lust pervade this four-minute short film for Treats! magazine by Logan & Sons Director Paul Minor. Sexsomnia, which accompanies the eponymous editorial in the magazine, plays like a Cimmerian fever-dream, replete with a propulsive synth soundtrack (composed by Minor and David Baum) and a beautifully caliginous eroticism. Logan & Sons paired the acclaimed director with Treats! to great effect, delivering a powerful and captivating narrative.

Non sports nerds take note: The “Boston Massacre” phrase has been used to describe a late-season sweep by the Yankees of the rival Boston Red Sox in 1978. That season culminated in a World Series championship for the Yankees.
This is what the Nike shirt referred to, but in light of the Boston Bombings and following intense manhunt, a blood splattered shirt seems a bit morbid and in bad taste. Just to show how quick a brand can react, Nike has pulled the shirts from their online stores and are recalling them from all physical locations as we speak. They took immediate action last week, right after the marathon, to remove the product.
ESPN’s Darren Rovell tweeted the news a few hours ago:
Oh sure, you think that headline's nothing more than link bait. Fine. You believe what you want to believe. But I have proof. The Jackson 5 were totally in on the world's biggest cereal conspiracy. This, ladies and gentlemen, is the Zapruder Film of advertising.
First let's start with this spot for Sugar Crisp.
Earlier this week a cryptic message appeared on the spookily named domain http://itcouldhappentoallof.us/. It could happen to all of U.S.? Scarier still, there was a major U.S. city listed - Chicago, and... *gulp* ... a timer. Dum .. dum DUM....!
Better still, the cryptic code was spelled out with symbols for chemical hazard, biohazard, radioactivity, and a slew of religions for good measure. With exploding cookers, fertilizer factories and mailed ricin people might be just a tad edgy right now.
Cue internet panic!
Remember Audi A5 Suicide vs Citroën Suicide by car: Carbon monoxide poisoning isn't what it used to be? Well it still isn't what it used to be, or perhaps this gag is becoming so common this is the new normal - everyone with clean emission cars fail at suicide.
Updates! one more suicide by car - this idea was done as far back as 1997, but wait! There's MORE Suicide by car ad idea officially older than dirt!
In yet another wonderful collaboration, RPS‘ Carlos Arias lends his deft talent to the forthcoming short film from Academy Award-nominated cinematographer Rodrigo Prieto entitled “Likeness.” The short, which is to debut at this year’s TriBeCa Film Festival, is the directorial debut of Prieto, who is known industry-wide as one o
Really? Whining? For me, "If you don't laugh you'll cry" and "it's funny because it's true" come to mind faster than the word whining, but then I was spitting out the majority of adland-jokes in a manic frenzy while cackling loudly like a crazy woman. For a moment there I was afraid someone would arrive with a nice hug-myself-jacket and take me away. In the hashtag some people were humblebragging, others dropping serious gossip under the guise of a joke. OK, that was me.
