Dinosaurs Attack Billboards For Creation Museum

creation_museum.jpg

We love this new billboard campaign for Petersburg, Kentucky-based Creation Museum, a "70,000 square foot museum brings the pages of the Bible to life." This particular campaign appears to promote the museum's Dinosaur Den.

Interestingly, and unlike many other museums, the Creation Museum touts the idea of natural selection versus evolution and downplays the "molecules-to-man" line of Darwinian thinking. Or at least that's how we interpret it.

The billboard campaign itself is perfect. After all, what do you think a dinosaur would do if a billboard got in its way?

Jayde Nicole Dons Lettuce Bikini For PETA

peta_jayde_nicole_veggie_dog.jpg

PETA grabbed Playmate of the Year Jayde Nicole for their latest Go Veg effort. In celebration of National Veggie Dog Day (only PETA can come up with this stuff), Nicole, along with another lettuce-clad hottie, gave out free veggie dogs outside Capitol Hill yesterday.

Hmm. We've seen this lettuce bikini thing before. Wonder who created the idea first. Oh and before you all go slinging agency names around like a sandbox full of kids fighting over a plastic shovel and screaming, "mine! mine! mine!", we're quite sure old-school cavewomen - or maybe even Eve, herself - can lay claim to the invention before anyone had an inkling of the word "advertising".

Sadly, Obama Girl didn't make an appearance with the Giuliani Girls for an all out catfight.

Keyboard Cat Recruited For Silly Infomercial

textwise.jpg

OK so it's not like the whole informercial spoof genre hasn't been done to death but this outing from TextWise enlists Keyboard Cat and who doesn't love Keyboard Cat? There's all kind of talk about a document's "semantic DNA" and using an entire document to find another document. It's all way over our head but the woman in the ad is cute so we're all over it.

Roadkill Detective Explains Benefits of Job

westwood_college_roadkill_detective.jpg

Kinda lame until the end but it's only one minute long so it's sort of worth the wait. Not sure what PETA would have to say about animal treatment in this video but Westwood College doesn't seem to have a problem. All they want is for people in less desirable careers to realize a little education can help a person land their ideal job. But this "roadkill detective" seems to be quite smitten right where he is.

Newsflash! Cannes Gold Lions Not Gold!

lions_not_gold.jpg

Not that we didn't know this already but someone went to the effort to prove it anyway. Boondoggle took their five "gold" Lions to several goldsmiths to see just how gold they really are. The findings? According to one goldsmith, a Gold Lion is just "a bad piece of blunt casting." No goldsmith found any worth to the statues.

Anyway, Boondoggle is very happy and proud to have won five "yellow copper Lions."

Celebrities Hold Hands Up For Nelson Mandela Day

nelson_mandela_day.jpg

OK, fine. A Nelson Mandela Day in New York on July 18th can't really be a bad thing, right? After all, the dude did a lot in his lifetime to help a lot of people. Why not celebrate him? But why do we need a video with celebrities holding their hands up for two minutes as some almost Simon and Garfunkel-sounding dude whines about how wonderful the world would be if people just helped make peace on earth with their own two hands.

Oh wait, this is all a good thing, right? Sorry, let's start over.
