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.
The social graph. Data portability. Privacy. Data control. Peerset CTO and Co-founder Amit Kanigsberg has a few things to share on these topics in this second post in a series on the use of personal data.
All of this hype surrounding online privacy is a red herring, especially as it regards Facebook. We learned this week that privacy is not the central concern for Facebook users. The "Quit Facebook Day" protest groups have barely gained membership. Quitfacebookday.com only managed to attract 35,000 members for their mass exodus yesterday. Next to Facebook's close to half a billion users, this just doesn't seem very significant (a good article considering this perspective).
In this Borheierh Lowe-created, Hungry man-produced commercial for Unilever, we see what it would be like if our bad breath had the ability to speak. The results aren't pretty. And they can truly ruin a situation that's supposed to be epic and bad breath-free.
The spot does a nice job making its point. We've all been in situations where bad breath unleashes its stench but we usually don't say a word. Here, the reason behind the bad breath is fully explained. Though, sadly, it doesn't get the guy the girl.
We always thought Desmond's failsafe maneuver transported people to the island. Now, it seems, all you have to do is drink a Fruit Shoot beverage and, poof, you're on an island...with a mysterious creature raging through the under brush.
Thanks to BSUR in Amserdam, Lost really isn't over.
