While Harvey is out of the kitchen his owner reckons he might take this opportunity to get rid of that rancid old rabbit.... But then the power of TV advertising makes him change his mind. Well that, the awesome soundtrack and those eyes.
"We turned time sheets into something cool" says JWT Brazil, but really what they did was just good old-fashioned beer bribery, spiced with a little office peer pressure. A clever black fridge is digitally connected to the electronic time-sheets that the entire office need to fill out in order to unlock the fridge, and get free beer. Results: every Friday all timesheets are 100% filled out WHO WOULD HAVE THUNK IT? Very funny.
This is the perfect storm of "crazy" new media and hep but dying tech. Leo Burnett in Spain has a creative guy named Fred hired there, and when Fred made a QR tattoo an idea was born. Advertise on Freds arm!
Alas, the ebay auction where bidding starts at one euro, is terminado, that is closed. Why? We can sell virginities on ebay, but not QR-code tattoo space? Weird.
Top old blokes of advertising, sorry, leading industry figures including Sir Martin Sorrell, Sir John Hegarty, Lord Bell, Johnny Hornby and Jeremy Bullmore, have been immortalized in Lego as part of a ‘build your career’ campaign to highlight the high calibre of speakers that the IPA’s 44 Club attracts. SO cute.
The Lego figures, created by 44 Club committee member and Leo Burnett creative Ben Gough and photographed by Adrian Burke, will appear on a series of postcards to be sent to the industry’s HR managers and those new to the industry.
Work driving you nuts? Stuck with a bad boss? Won't retire until you're 83? A hilarious new spot from Tool Director J.J. Adler via Cramer-Krasselt/Milwaukee will help you fix that with the hard-charging power of ECHO Outdoor Power Equipment. Part of the "Get Serious" campaign, the ad stars a frustrated office worker calmly accepting the chaos of his noisy, irritating coworkers as he waxes about the ECHO tools that await him once he clocks out for the day.
In its new “Treadmill” spot, Campbell Mithun runs a lawnmower on a grass-covered treadmill to demonstrate Toro’s Personal Pace® technology for walk power mowers. A stagecraft neighborhood scene spins in the background as the hero hurries to beat the weather, slows for a whistling bird, and hustles away from a barking dog -- all while adjusting the pace of his Toro® mower accordingly on the grassy treadmill deck. “Whatever speed you want to go,” declares the voiceover, “one mower will match your pace.”
Chris Palmer clearly had a grand old time directing the call for entries film for the Saatchi & Saatchi New Directors' Showcase 2012. In it, a perfectionist porn director asks for "more smoke, Gary", and titles his films "Good things cum to those who wait". The advertising jokes never seem to end, there's an orange bald guy slapping some girls, the dialogue consists of famously horny lines written by copy wankers, such as "Where's the beef" and "a bit of an animal".
– Hub Strategy, the San Francisco-based integrated creative agency, today unveiled the first-ever overall visibility advertising campaign for the University of San Francisco to increase awareness and recognition for the institution.
The citywide visibility campaign will launch throughout San Francisco on transit shelters, billboards, taxi tops, Muni sides, online banners and San Francisco-based print.
The campaign also leans on San Francisco as a major part of the messaging, as well as the design. The background images are all photographs taken around the city. Hub steered clear of typical imagery of San Francisco, such as the touristy Golden Gate Bridge, and instead focused on giving perspectives of the city from USF.
Farkyeri, the Turkish ad agency crew who protested that bad Hitler shampoo ad by posing in dresses, but somehow still looking like hero musketeers (must be the grand facial hair, guys) have done a video to really make their point.
I love these guys. They're doing a self-promo simply by taking a stand.
In response to the Hitler recommends Bimen shampoo for men Farkyeri, a local Turkish ad agency, decided to don dresses and declare that they are not men. Because if using the likeness of the man that launched a thousand deaths is a "manly" way to shill shampoo they want no part of it. "If manhood is racism and gender apartheid..." I love this. I'll hand the microphone to them:
“We are not men…”
We, as a local advertising agency in Turkey, hereby condemn the unfortunate commercial produced in March 2012 by an advertising agency from our country for a shampoo brand in our country by using the images of a speech delivered by Adolf Hitler.
This stills and video series for Wallpaper* Handmade 2012, shown in a specially-designed outdoor cinema at Brioni HQ last week, arose naturally from the marriage of Brioni's bespoke craftsmanship and Wallpaper's Handmade theme. 'We like to be playful and have fun, so there is an element of mischief about this film,' reveal Lernert & Sander. 'What better way to showcase the abilities of Brioni's master tailors than to set them the ultimate test of skill with a particularly exacting customer?'.
There are head shops in every neighbourhood in every city across the world. Toronto-based Head2Head wanted to produce a value-added product for their clients that wouldn’t cost them an arm and a leg.
Combining this with the desire to rebrand, Bos, Toronto created a business card that served a dual purpose. Not only does it provide a functional benefit (given that each card contained 5 perforated filters), but it also adds a stickiness factor because the card would be something you’d hold onto and refer to, as frequently as you smoked.
As the representatives of White Square International Advertising Festival in Israel, we looked for a unique way to promote the festival among Israel's leading ad agencies, which are unfamiliar with it. In cooperation with Forbes Magazine, we've created DontFake.com, a creative competition in which agencies are asked to create press ads to promote a global agenda against Ghost / Scam Advertising.

Let me know if anything interesting happens after the eye(s) turns into a singing mouth. I'm too squicked out to bear it 'til the end.
