We didn't think a cute little video about the challenges a single mother faces would affect us all that much but then, as we watched, we realized there are a lot of struggling women out there with mouths to feed who need help and don't have it all that easy.
This video from BeThatWoman.org takes us through the day of a woman who's trying to make a go of it for her and her baby. And it's tough going. She can't afford medicine. She can't afford to pay her utility bills. She can't afford daycare or the bus. She can't get a job at a snotty cafe.
And then. Salvation. She finds a women's center which can help her get back on her feet. It's the Washington Area Women's Foundation and the video was created by RP3. We like the simplicity of the work and the simplicity of the message.
Admit it. You've done it. At least once. You've walked into a glass door thinking it was open. Yea, you know you have. Fess up. But the real question is, how did you save yourself from the embarrassment of having made such an idiotic move?
Well if you drink Fanta and you're an uber cool cartoon hipster, you become a mime and mime your way out of the debacle. Really. It's that easy. Just watch.
Ogilvy & Mather created. Psyop produced.
We were so busy enjoying Golden Kiss Mayo on Friday (OK, not really), we didn't have a chance to share these radio jingle outtakes with you. Progressively more salacious, each take gets raunchier and raunchier and the directors becomes more and more, well, just give it a listen. But not near anyone who might be grossed out by some rather disgusting fetishes.
When Heather Graham hit the scene in Drugstore Cowboy and then again on Twin Peaks, we were, well, peaked. While we're not quite sure what appearing in a MoveOn commercial hyping a public health insurance option will do for her career, we are very sure she - and all of her hot, blond curvaceousness - has caught the eye of the very bloated, for-profit insurance companies.
As they all stand at the starting line of a race in which they don't need to compete (after all, why exert any energy when complacency works just fine), Heather, and all of her hot, blond curvaceousness, approaches the starting line as a representative of the public health insurance option and gets set to beat the crap out of all the other bloated insurance companies.
All while Peter Coyote (President on Flash Forward!) pleads for us all to contact congress and tell our representatives we need that public health insurance option.
Yes, we're pimping the Audience Conference will which take place in New York November 6 at the Hudson Theater and Millennium Hotel. So do us a favor and go. You won't regret it. Seriously. We're going and you should too. Besides, it's another opportunity to bullshit about advertising and who among us doesn't love to do that?
Speakers include TechCrunch's Mike Arrington, CBS News' Dan Farber, AllThingsD's Peter Kafka, Crayon's Joe Jaffe, MS&L's David Binkowski, Mahalo's Jason Calacanis, Copyblogger's Brian Clark, Shoemoney's Jeremy Shoemaker, Warner Bros. Records' Ethan Kaplan, uber PR dude Jeremy Pepper and many more.
