Need A Cheap Jingle? Love Harnell Has It For You

love_harnell.jpg

Not sure about this one but we haven't had a Million Dollar Homepage/IWearYourShirt thing in a while so let's check this out. Love Harnell (yes, that's his name) has launched Love Jingles. He offers to cover, write and perform jingles for brands and promote them on the web. Similar to IWearYourShirt, Harnell is using calendar-based pricing.

On January 1, 2010 the cost of a jingle will be $1. Each day the price will go up $1 until December 31 when Harnell will either be rich, bored or the laughing stock of the ad industry and his friends. But it's an admirable effort and a cheap one too for those who get in early.

Need A Tramp Stamp? Look in the Mirror

Who doesn't love a well-placed tattoo? Or some ink that shows how much you love someone? Or a tat that announces your political affiliations?

If you're not quite sure yet what kind of message you want to permanently apply to yourself, Dermagraphic Tattoo can help. They've placed stickers on mirrors in and around Auckland, New Zealand to give people a chance to try a tatto on for size.

Or maybe it's just another excuse to check out your own ass.

And You Thought the Method Shiny Suds Ad Was Offensive

Oh look! Just in time to counteract all the hoopla over the Shiny Suds "rape scenario" fiasco. Tit for tat as they say. If you believe the woman in the Method Shiny Suds commercial was somehow being sexually assaulted by those leering, dirty-minded bubbles, you'll definitely relate to the horrific plight of the man in this Orangina commercial who is verbally taunted, assaulted with a whip and forced to strip while he fears for his life.

Oh the horror of it all! The insensitivity to the plight of men! Reducing a man to nothing more than a caged plaything! How dare Orangina portray men as sexual objects for S&M-fixated women! It's as if sexually assaulting men is an acceptable form of behavior! Good God. What has this world come to?

What? No cause group outrage over this one?

Dell Hunts, Mistletoe Grows, Mispronunciation Un-Allowed

dell_intel_holiday_hunt.jpg

- Like scavenger hunts? The you might like Dell's Holiday Gift Hunt. You could win all sorts of goodies including a new TV.

- OK so it's just a mistletoe. But it is big.

- And yes. Now we can't even laugh at a guy who has trouble pronouncing a Hispanic name.

- And gap employees dress in plaid and act like zombies. All to...sell clothes?

- It must be the water.

Some Banners Are More Interactive Than Others

WEB_Autoweek.nl.jpg

Like online games? Like online racing games? Don't have enough money to actually buy a decent online racing game? Electronic Arts is here to help with their new ad campaign. An interactive banner has been placed on several gaming and automotive sites, such as AutoWeek, in the Netherlands which allow the visitor to race against others viewing the banners on other sites.

Here's how the campaign is described: "After each race, players are invited to race the next track on the following website. Combined, all 5 websites form a Grand Prix. Players can save and cumulate their scores across all five websites, by creating an online Driver Profile. All the Driver Profiles are ranked on a central Leaderboard, that is found on the campaign site. The player with the highest Leaderboard position at the end of the campaign, wins the Grand Prix: a custom race chair, an XBOX 360 Elite, the game Need for Speed SHIFT and an exclusive mini fridge from Coca-Cola Zero, the campaigns in-game advertiser."

Amsterdam-based NRG3 created the campaign.
