Hood Blimp Crashes, Billboards Vandelized, Bank Blings

normal_Streetwash02.jpg

- O&M London is using a pressure washer to write ads on dirty sidewalks and the sides of buildings so as to avoid being labeled as an eco-unfriendly graf artist.

- Hood blimp crashes.

- Is it just us or is the combination of former Kiss bassist Gene Simmons and the elizabeth Glaser Pediatrics AIDS Foundation just a tad strange?

- Catherine Zeta Jones gets the boot from T-Mobile.

- Continuing its My Circle campaign, Alltel has "announced" five of its billboards have been vandalized with the word "Don't" over the headline, "Call anyone on any network for free."

- Sometimes creatives just don't get the imagery quite right as is indicated in this ad for the Flamingo Hotel & Casino's Hangover package which looks more like a toe tag morgue ad than one that's supposed to perk you up.

- Hmm. Even though the bling thing is so five minutes a go, it's nice to see a bank break the mold and have some fun.

- The Web Marketing Association announced today the winners of its tenth annual WebAward Competition for outstanding web site development. The 2005 Best of Show WebAward is presented to New York-based Big Spaceship , for its work on the "TBS: Department of Humor Analysis" web site at www.tbshumorstudy.com.

- While the combination of former KISS bassist Gene Simmons and the Elizabeth Glaser Pediatric AIDS Foundation seems an odd one, the two have connected in an eBay auction to raise money.

- Justin Kirby: found! The long lost Viral + Buzz Marketing Association head has resurfaced and will speak at ad:tech London. The VBMA recently relaunched with Lincoln Business School Senior Lecturer as its head.

"...former Kiss bassist Gene Simmons"??? Gene, a founding member of the group, is still KISS' bass player and KISS is still alive and strong. There is nothing "former" about Simmons.

Kiss haven't been the same since they first took off their makeup, everyone knows that. Anyway, if you want marketing news check out marketingsheet.com every day.

Hey Marketing She-it - that's not the way to get people to your site. Leave a relevant comment with your name linked and people might want to know more of what you have to say. As it is - your site is just a news aggregator. Woo hoo! No thanks.

Oh - and I'm supposed to check you out "every day"?

Why? your "Today's Headlines" are two days old - dipshit.

I will enjoy watching you crash and burn.

Thanks, I Hate Marketing Sheet. And I was just writing a comment of my own: "Enough with the blatant self promotions, OK? And what value does your site offer? Links to other publication's articles with no added value? No opinion? No interpretation? We have Google News for that."

We can help you determine the right product for your needs, by answering the big questions like:- Should I use a blimp at a trade show? How large a blimp do I need to be seen from a half mile away? Should I use a point and shoot style camera or a Digital SLR? Do I use digital graphics on my RC blimp, or banner attachments?
