Crispin Porter + Bogusky is out with a great new PSA which features Alex Bogusky breaking down all the crap surrounding global warming and simplifying it into easy to understand terms. In this two minute video, Bogusky likens "global warming" to pollution and the famed crying Indian ad that addressed that problem back in the sixties and seventies.
The simple message was and is "pollution is bad, clean is good." He argues it should be the same with the global warming issue. Carbon in the air is bad. Less of it is good. Focus on the problem. Solve the problem. And leave the scientific and political blather out of the room.
Kudos to Bogusky for delivering a clear and concise message that makes it much easier for people to understand what it is they should do without extended and pointless debate.

This is beyond awesome! A new short film asks if you don't agree with gay lifestyle, why would you then support prop8 and spare them from a life of wedded misery?
This interesting piece of reverse logic, Devin & Glenn, stars Justin Long and Mike White as a gay couple. Directed by Furlined team Will Speck and Josh Gordon, the 3:30 video also features Tom Arnold and Nora Dunn.
Leo Burnett Argentina has created a wondrous new campaign for the Fiat Palio. There are no winding mountain roads. No people punching each other in the arm. No wine glass breakage. No metal ball rolling along the car's contours. No animals getting caught in the sunroof. No terrorist bombers. No hot girls spreading peanut on the hood. No rednecks slingshot from a four wheeler. No bikini clad hotties riding bicycles into the air ET-style. No sudden car crashes. And no Trunk Monkeys.
No. This time we have a seventies-era, 'fro fashioned dude rollerskating down the road while...people ride in his hair. It's the Palio Groove. And you thought there were no new ideas when it came to selling cars. See the ads below.
"What happens when you mix high fashion, Chelsea Flower Show and naked models? You get the BrandAlley's Chelsea Flower Show Flashwalk."
And that precisely explains this new work from BrandAlley for the 2010 Chelsea Flower Show.
Paint and nudity. What's not to love?
Dude wakes up. In a messy room. Takes a Shower. Gets dressed. Has breakfast. Spills milk. Leaves apartment. French subtitles leave us flummoxed. Girls come out of the woodwork. OK, now we know what's going on. It's an Axe commercial.
In this playful, though possibly unsanctioned, commercial for the VW Polo, we see that the car does, in fact, gets the girl. Well, sort of. And it provides a side benefit. It gives what most every guy dreams of getting when he's in a car with a delicious beauty.
The impending doom in this French road safety PSA is tough to take. We've seen enough of these PSAs to realize immediately what its inevitable, if not rather predictable, conclusion will be. And it's never pretty. Not when alcohol and young adults are involved.
For five minutes, we are taken through the cringe worthy story of a few party happy twenty-somethings as they go about their evening festivities. Inter-cut with this are shots of the parents of these kids and the sad truths they must face.
