Nathan Love Director Jim McKenzie brings a wildly nontraditional look to the National Geographic Channel in a promo for the network’s new The 80s: The Decade That Made Us miniseries. A rousing contrast to National Geographic’s traditionally grounded advertising, the animated spot infiltrates the airwaves with a trio of grinning, buff cheese ball characters working out in synch to an electronic frenzy of a song reminiscent of the 1980s.
Brazilian radio station UOL 89FM has been sleeping for six years. But now they're back. And with the help of death metal band Sepultura's leader Andreas Kisser they want you to wake the eff up. And they have just the app to make you do it.
Rock Snooze is simple: your alarm goes off, and you hear Andreas laying down a bone crunching riff. If you dare hit the snooze button, next time the alarm goes off, Andreas makes it louder. And so on.
So far, it's working well. Not to mention the fact people are tuning back in to UOL 89FM. Which is awesome. I can think of no better way to wake up than with Kisser's guitar shredding my eyes open every morning.
Iggy Pop is hilarious and rules the world. So does Fat Possum records. For hardcore music geeks like me, you had me at "new Stooges album," especially since the last one came out 40 years ago. But for the rest of the music masses, I can think of no better way than this. Props to both rock star and record label for having a sense of humor, too.

Celebrating the New Year's Day return of the hugely popular "Dance Moms," the Season 2 promo is an homage to the 80s ballet flick "Flashdance." Mixed-media production studio Roger headed to Pittsburgh, PA (home of the show and the film) for the one-day shoot.
"It was only fitting to tie ‘Flashdance’ into the promo concept," says Terence Lee, Owner/Creative Director of Roger. "We explored the original film, pulling the most iconic moments to help sell our story. We took pains to make the wardrobe and set-dressing reference original scenes from the movie while still functioning for what we needed to change."

The 2013 MTV Movie Awards campaign spoofs Tatum’s upcoming White House Down with spots portraying the action star outrunning his attackers in a bullet-riddled SUV as an obliviously love-struck Rebel Wilson tricks and cajoles him into sexually uncomfortable situations. To create these hilariously harrowing scenes, Click 3X transformed a windshield-less SUV shot on rollers in a green screen stage into a fast-moving battle-scarred escape vehicle with the help of moving light rigs, stock and custom elements, and green screen comps melded to background footage from White House Down.
To celebrate The Canadian Film Fest, JWT Canada aired these spots in Toronto, Canada, riffing off the fact that perhaps Canadian films are too Canadian.
Sigh. It seems as if it was only yesterday I made a post about how the "Canadians talking about how Canadian they are" execution has become pretty much cliché.
Oh wait. It was yesterday.
At least this campaign tried to find some unique idiosyncrasies. I.E. No Beaver/Moose/Mountie/Beer jokes.
When Director Harmony Korine needed the perfect opening for his latest feature-length masterpiece, Spring Breakers, he turned to his friends and collaborators at LA-based creative studio Gentleman Scholar. The famously exacting American auteur entrusted the Gentleman Scholar team with the entire concept and design process. The result is a gorgeous testament to hallucinatory visual excess – a title sequence that stands toe-to-toe with the film’s glittering feminine allure.
British rock band Skunk Anansie turned to Trunk and directing duo Lore&Jun to collaborate with them on their latest video for their new single “This is not a game”. The track from their sixth and current album, Black Traffic; “is a political track, about the difference in mentality between those suffering under the current financial crisis and those abusing the power over it."
Virgin Mobile wants you to retrain our brain, and they'll help you along with some surreal images of a snorkler petting a happy shark, triplets saying "virgin mobile", dust explosions and a dash of red here, there and everywhere. See it as an updated version of that scene in a clockwork Orange where they retrain Alex to not like violence, with set direction that would make Kubrik a little jealous.
Crash and Compute featuring Emil de Waal Spejderrobot New Normal - music video (2013) 3:37 (denmark)
There's a concept to this music video, one that involves regurgitating stock photography ideas and re-doing it. So no, it's not The Danish Banks version of The New Normal. Logging into stock photo Getty Images and searching for "crash" and "computing" Copenhagen ad agency SELIGEMIG found images of broken glass, cars leaping off cliffs, retro-computing, future computing and even a man that looks like Mr Spicy Meatballs tearing up his stereotypical italian dinner.
Using women's shampoo gives you women's hair - or this is how the conversation goes in this ad:
(ah-ah-music as hair moves in slow-motion)
-"Did you do something to your hair?
-"Because I see that women's shampoo commercial effect.. when you do.. like this..."
-"Maybe it's your shampoo.."
VO: Women's shampoo isn't made for you. Dove men care is.
