Just Do(uche) It

DoucheItSmall-2.jpg

No, this is not a real Nike ad. It's all part of a promotion for an international magazine. Our tipster tells us, "We prefer to keep the publication anonymous for now but this will be going to print in the very near future and we expect it to provoke some discussion and probably some threats of legal action."

Um, yea.

Just Douche It? That ain't goin' over well with Nike Oregonians.

Mickie Rosen No Longer A Fox

mickie_rosen.jpg

Wow, there's nothing like being called a fox and then having the label removed because you change jobs. But, that's exactly what happened to former fox (and FOX executive) Mickie Rosen who's decided to leave FOX for Velocity Interactive where she'll oversee the company's West Coast operations.

But hey, she's still kind of a fox even if she's no longer with FOX.

[Ed. That, by far, was the worst, most inane story that's ever appeared on Adrants. Oh wait. There was the Fudge Packs thing. That's a classic actually.]

Ford SYNCs, Cat Dances, W+K Getds $150M From Nokia

ford_sync.jpg

- Common Craft helps Ford explain how Microsoft SYNC works in its vehicles. It's so good it'll be the sole reason you buy a Ford. Or so says the video. It's pretty straight forward but this video explaining YouTube is MUCH more straightforward.

- Got thoughts? Head over to ThoughtPile and check out what everyone else is thinking. And maybe win a Herman Miller Embody chair.

- Do some good when you waste time playing an online game. The Motion Monkey created a game for The Anthony Nolan Trust, an organization that aids donor matching.

Kotex Makes Beaver Joke: Reason #4324324 Why We Need a Category Labeled 'Indescribable Horrors'

beaver-manicure.jpg

Seizing upon a double-entendre so vapid and that we honestly thought we'd never see it happen, Sydney-based Brandshop paired Kotex to beavers.

Watch as an Australian woman totes her furry friend around, getting its hair done and nails painted. For their painstaking efforts, both Big and Little B are awarded with good-natured nods of approval from hot guys at the beach.

The spot ends in a restaurant, where Honey passes her beaver a giftwrapped container of Kotex U. "You've only got one ... so, for the ultimate care down there, make it U," a voiceover spouts inanely.

GoDaddy must be livid. Props to Adrants reader Theresa for passing this along.

Wonderglen Brings Back Glory Days of Viral Wonderment

What happens when your highly elaborate, intricately planned, deeply seeded viral accomplishes nothing but rack up less than 6,000 views on YouTube and a handful of mentions on obscure sites? You send an email to Adrants, of course! It's been a long time since we've seen one of these good old fashioned viral wannabe things so here we go. Here's the email:

Hip-Hop for Bad Presents and Cranberry Juice.

rap-sierra-mist.png

To compel holiday shoppers to try Sierra Mist Cranberry Splash, Creature organized the Re-Gift Rap Battles, which will hit shopping malls in most major cities coast to coast.

Imagine White Elephant, except with a persuasion element: participants grab a wrapped gift -- a nose hair trimmer, ceramic cat, backscratcher -- then rap about it to another contestant. At each event, eight contestants will be sifted through four rounds, after which a winner and the worst holiday gift will be named.

Somewhat more exciting than pulling a sampler afternoon at Costco. Think Jin the Bay Area wonder will come out and play?

Toshiba Embraces 'Redefined' Entertainment Experience. Kind Of.

toshiba-timesculpture-2.jpg

Hoping to make an impression on a market where content consumption meets user manipulation, Toshiba launched the world's first TimeSculpture ad.

Totally fun to watch after the beat-drop. Ends with "When what we watch constantly redefines itself, shouldn't how we watch it do the same?" Provocative.

Users are sent to toshiba.com/upscaling, where I thought I could play around with the TimeSculpture concept, but instead I kept getting herded elsewhere on the site and merched on a TV. Buzzkill. Neat virtual nav, though.

See making-of. Song featured in ad -- for people that are big on that -- is Air War by Crystal Castles.

Shocker! First Female Polygamist Revealed!

francine_fleiss_coolcapitals.jpg

So Australia promotes itself with "Where the bloody hell are you?" and mini cinematic masterpieces by Baz Luhrmann. How do the "cool capitals" of Europe do it? With CoolCapitals.com, of course. The site highlights Amsterdamn, Antwerp, Valencia, Vienna and Zurich. Sounds boring, right?

Not really. The site is...um...cool. Nice navigation. Informative videos. Pretty pictures. And lots of deals. All good but what makes this offering from the Netherlands Board of Tourism & Conventions really cool is the promotional video that gets one to the site.
