Skittles is out with a new installment of its Experience the Rainbow campaign. This outing, equally as weird as earlier efforts, touts a new product, Skittles Blnders. In the ad we see a man saying goodbye to his blender because, well, he doesn't need it any longer because Skittles has already blended his fruit for him.
Unfortunately, the blender doesn't take very kindly to being shoved aside in favor of the shiny new object and decides to wreak havoc on the guys house like some sort of kamikaze suicide pilot.
The effort comes courtesy of TBWA\Chiat\Day in New York
Today, Skype announce the launch of an advertising program - it's first ever - which will place ads on the Home tab of Skype for Windows. Groupon, Nokia, Universal and Visa and some of the initial advertisers.
The Home page ad unit will measure 650 X 170 and will expand to 650 X 340. It will also include the ability to embed audio and video. Each ad will contain a Click to Call button and sharing functionality with Facebook and Twitter.
We don't normally pimp books here on Adrants. Oh we have occasionally in the past but, seriously, business books, for the most part, are dull, dry and boring. And way less interesting than a story about a busty, bikini-clad celebu-hottie offering up her bulging breasts to sell a product, right?
But we're going to break that norm for a minute here and feature a book called How to Make A Blog? Why, you ask as you yawn, lean back and almost fall out of your chair while dozing off to sleep from boredom? Because we're in the blog book! That's why.
And you thought we were obsessed with boobs? Clearly, you haven't met the Chinese. Or the Japanese. But in this case, we're taking about the Chinese and a commercial for a line of...hmm...what shall we call it...boob wear that miraculously gives a woman epic cleavage.
Actually, it's not all that miraculous. It's just a corset that squeezes the crap out of your boobs so that even a woman with an A cup can have drool-inducing cleavage. Kind of like the bra a traffic manager we knew a while back always wore. The thing looked painful. But it did make her boobs look huge and her cleavage endless.
The things women will do...oh wait...it's all mens' fault. If men didn't obsess over boobs, women would just wear comfortable, baggy tops without a care in the world how their breasts appeared to others.
Once upon a time we were allowed to experience the glee of thousands of balloons floating through the air. We could admire their color, appreciate their beauty as they rose to the sky and wonder at the freedom of flight they represented.
Now? We get shit on by cause groups who believe balloons will be the death toll of our environment. Of course, they have a point and Environmental Defense Fund Senior Scientist Rod Fujita made that very clear to Southern California game company THQ which set loose 10,000 balloons in San Fransisco during the Game Developers Conference.
Right in line with the insanity that is the Charlie Sheen Saga, the Two and a Half Men star has hooked up with Celebu-tweet company Ad.ly and could earn a million dollars in his first year of sponsored tweets. Of course that's a drop in the bucket compared to what he currently earns but it never hurts to have a back up plan. Especially when you're Charlie Sheen.
As you may have heard, Sheen gained a million followers in the 25 hours and 17 minutes following his opening a Twitter account.
