'John Wren' Explains Omnicom's Netflix-Like Changes


Let's be clear right up front. This letter was not written by the real John Wren. If it were, it would be career suicide and a giant middle finger lodged in the behind of shareholders. But let's not let that stop us from enjoying the humor within.

Whomever wrote this letter created in the style of the letter everyone on the internet received from Netflix today explaining the company's recent price change and the launch of Qwikster. The 'John Wren' letter is far more amusing and will give you something to chuckle over on a Monday afternoon. Click the image to read.

Social Snap Shot Creates Personalized Facebook Update Video


Tired of social media overload? Sick of reading updates from all those "friends" that really aren't your friends at all? Toyota Yaris has the answer to your woes with Social Snap Shot. To use Social Snap Shot, created by glueisobar, you simply select up to ten off your Facebook friends, decide how often you'd like updates and then sit back and get a summary video of what your friends are up to on a daily, weekly or monthly basis.

Sadly, we were never able to see the finished product. The site got stuck loading at 99%. We won't fault anyone though. The site is still in beta and our laptop is a piece of shit but it does sound like an interesting idea and a great way to save time. Oh and not a bad way to get the Toyota Yaris brand in front of a whole lot of people.

'Camry Effect' Collects Toyota Camry Owners' Stories


Toyota wants us to know that its Camry has effected more lives than any other car in America. With help from Saatchi & Saatchi LA, Resn and Qube Konstrukt Toyota has launched Camry Effect, a site which aims to collect personal stories from Camry owners by asking a few simple questions.

The result is a chronicle of each owner's experience with his or her car with added information taken from the collective Camry experiences. Each story changes the site with real-time dynamic data visualization pulled straight from visitors' shared experiences.

Properly executed, it could be a goldmine of information for the brand in terms of insightful, behavioral and demographic information that can then be used to further fine tune the brand's marketing efforts moving forward.

Not Every Woman is Excited About Marrying George Clooney


This Norwegian DnB NOR bank ad is strange. Really, really strange. It's like one of those Las Vegas nightmares when you wake up and can't remember a thing about the night before. The only hint you have of what went down is the giant rock on your finger and a canoodling George Clooney who emerges from the bathroom. Oh, and then there's the picture of you with Clooney wearing the head of a horse. You don't see bank ads like this in America.

The Most Shocking Testicular Cancer Awareness Ad You Will Ever See


Many would classify this as NSFW so be warned. JWT London has created a PSA for the Male Cancer Awareness Campaign. The ad, which features The Sun Page Three girl Rhian Sugden, aims to urge men 18-35 to make sure they check themselves for testicular cancer on a regular basis. Be warned. It's a bit of a Crying Game reveal. That's all we're going to say about this one.

Skechers Takes Sneaker Sexification to New Heights


Who is That Hot Ad Girl made a goof and got the identity of the woman in a Skechers ad incorrect. Hey, it happens. But the error has been corrected and we can move the fact that this whole category of sneakers that make your ass firm is getting pretty hot. This Skechers ad from Spring 2011 makes the Reebok Retone ads look tame by comparison.
