It's a bit scary to think the office server in some back closet would take on the look of an octopus or a giant squid but that's the imagery Publicis West chose HP chose to introduce its Blade System C Class server. Apparently, lots of hands (tentacles?) are a very good thing when it comes to a server's capability to organize an office mess.
Oh those Japanese do love to be odd. In a Japanese shopping center models were hired to do the live window display thing (yeah, like the zoo!) to promote teen-targeting brands like Nokia and Apple.
Weird. Probably also really boring, unless there's internet access, which we doubt because then the models would spend less time dancing around and shit. Check out a male version here. - Contributed by Angela Natividad
This childhood obesity ad sent our minds flying in multiple directions, none of which brought us closer to Birds Eye. We're not even sure what they sell aside from that it involves food.
The Birds Eye logo made us startlingly hungry for a fun-sized bag of Fritos. We weren't sure why but with a little research we quickly found out. Excellent choice of logo. Then we started thinking, it would be neat if the parents charted both horizontal and vertical growth, because then there'd be sort of a quadrant thing going on.
Otherwise, and for what it's worth, good ad. Or not. Either way, sucks for Chris. He probably acted on the Frito impulse. - Contributed by Angela Natividad
Here's a no-frills campaign that packs a mean punch. This series of ads for APAV gave us vertigo, then chills. The ad copy reads "As you can't feel what they feel, see what they see." Equally stark commercials are also circulating.
The campaign is for the International Day for the Elimination of Violence Against Women, which is November 25th. - Contributed by Angela Natividad
