Bears not your thing? Try growing one for the team. If, your team is the Boston Bruins. Sorry Ranger fans. More info on this Cenergy work at Beardathon.com/bruins and in the clip below.
CURB and SEA LIFE London Aquarium went around spraying through stencils with salt water to temporarily promote their recent facility refurbishment. Great way to get attention without destroying the environment, innit? *Ponders as only I do* Like futbol in England needs promoting, but I was thinking, maybe another all-natural use for the stencils involves one with an EPL logo and a pack of very drunk hooligans in select locations. What. It washes off. Eventually.
*cue angry EPL representative emailing Steve and Adrants about disgusting brand association*
drugfree.org spot after the jump from Martin Williams. Oh, and if slimy teens aren't your thing, try the print. It's much cleaner and safer! Sokay, apparently either there's an outbreak of SWSM (single white soccer moms) or only white suburban moms can keep a child off drugs. That shit takes two parents, planners. It takes two.
Because everyone needs tools, right?
- While not an iPhone app yet, mugshot finder should be.
- If only Powerpoint were this cool.
I suppose. It's also NSFW.
Kyle Andrews music video called Sushi. It's all technique tied to the rhythm of the song more than anything relating to the song's lyrical meaning. Wait, unless the feels so real lyrics actually does play off the artificial world of YouTube. But, YouTube is real I thought. Hmmm. So maybe there is a deeper meaning at work. Yeah, know what, just shut up and watch. Why?
Because that's a sick amount of editing here and sometimes a cool video is just that.
post Alan Wolk had over at Agency Spy. I came away thinking there are a lot of issues at work there lumped together under the single banner of why are ad people so damn angry. In talking offline with a few creatives about it, even more points were raised. At the risk of continuing the separation of church and state between creatives and the rest of the world, the focus for me becomes:
1) Why are anonymous comments overwhelmingly bitter/negative on ad blogs? (The flipside to why are ad people so damn angry.) Are we talking in the workplace? Or online. Two different things. If I was stuck in a lousy shop, I'd be angry too. I might even go online to vent about it anonymously. What if they're tired of reading fluff pieces about someone they know to be a prick. Sure beats the mall and rifle approach.
Peter Murphy was Marilyn Manson sans make-up and obnoxiousity long before Marilyn was, let's take a look behind the scenes at the creative brief for this mcgarrybowen effort:
"Chase's objective was simple--they wanted people to know: we're Chase, we're a bank and we're in California. With WaMu being such a toxic brand--the largest bank failure in history--and with the country (especially California) hit hard with the recession, Chase also wanted the spot [after the jump] to provide people with a little hope and convey the dawn of a new day."
this spot. Well, if you're one of the sneakers, you're now legal, no matter where you came from. Check out more info at about dual Canadian Amnesty at their website. Although I would've thrown in some Rush instead of the C&W music. How long now before we get spots here for immigrants converting into Americans. (Not every Canadian among us is honest about like William Shatner. Hard to tell them apart. The guy pumping your gas? Could be from Ontario.)
