Some Women Have A Thing For Giant Men


While watching this new Nestea commercial featuring a budding relationship between a giant and a woman who finds him by spinning the bottle, one can't help but wonder the difficulties a couple like this would face in the bedroom. In any event, the work, from Wieden + Kennedy London is all about equating the giant thirst to a thirst for giant. Or...err...the other way around. Either way, it's trippy little commercial that will have you grinning.

FOX Saves Guys From Getting Slapped For Staring at Boobs


Taproot India, whose site is still "under construction" (really?) and FOX are out with a humorous new video.

Gold Peak Tea Offers Year Off and $100,000


Though it accounted for over a third of category growth last year, Gold Peak Tea has been pretty quiet on the marketing front. That changes today with the launch of Take A Year Off, a campaign which aims to award one lucky person $100,000 to do whatever they wish for a year. Ideally, the year off will have meaning such as the pursuit of a dream and not be spent frivolously but you never know.

Today through July 13, people 18 and up can visit the Gold Peak Facebook page to enter by sharing why they deserve the year off and what they would do with the opportunity. Gold Peak will then narrow down the pool of applicants and the top candidates will submit a video telling Gold Peak why they deserve the comforts of home for a year.

Consumers will have the chance to vote for their favorite video entries and near Labor Day Gold Peak will announce the winner.

The Onion Describes 'Cool New Tide Video' Before Digitas Creates It


Usually when a brand creates a virally-intentioned video, press commentary comes after its release. In a strange twist of events, the revers happened last week. The Onion wrote a lengthly article about a "cool new Tide detergent video" which went on and on ans on about, well, how cool the video was. Trouble is, the video didin't exist yet.

But that didn't deter Digitas from whipping up the video in a couple of days and posting it everywhere The Onion said it would be posted. As described in The Onion piece, "it's [the video] got these cute, funny talking animals, a cool indie-rock song, and it's just so hilariously random. And it's got this amazing cameo by Bret Michaels, which is so funny because Bret Michaels is hilarious and from the '80s."
