Saatchi Unveils New Work For Toyota Camry


Everybody's waiting for the weekend Loverboy-style. Or at least the race car driver in this new Saatchi & Saatchi-createdToyota Camry commercial is who drives off the track after his pit crew redresses his race car with street legal garb.

In a second spot, we see a man envision all the things he can do and experience with his new Camry as he gets into it and gets ready to drive off to work. Both spots do a nice job illustrating all the features and specs the car has without it getting too feature and spec-y.

In all, there will be six spots. After the initial two, two more will roll out later this year and another two are slated for the Super Bowl and the Toyota Halftime Report.

Let's Not Do Lunch. Let's Feed Starving Africans


Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners has launched a social media fund raising effort called Let's Not Do Lunch which aims to capture money otherwise spent on lunch. The effort hopes to raise £1 million for famine relief in East Africa.

The Let's Not Do Lunch campaign is one of an intended 50 technology-based solutions that agency Made By Many is crowd-sourcing from agencies around the world with the goal of launching 50 projects in 50 days to raise funds for famine relief. The 50/50 project has nearly 40 global initiatives and launched October 17, World Hunger Day.

Butler, Shine, Stern & Partners Director of Strategy and Innovation Ed Cotton said, "Our idea was to create a social movement behind famine relief by tapping into social experiences we all enjoy, many of which are built around sharing a meal with a friend, colleague, business associate, even family. Through our Facebook application, 'Let's Not Do Lunch,' we are leveraging the social experience into a social action that can be shared and activated through Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and YouTube channels."

So, people, don't eat lunch today. Donate to the cause. You'll feel good. Trust us. You will.
