Turn Brings Booze, Cigarettes, Violence to Mad Men Finale


On Sunday night during Mad Men you will see a very interested commercial from audience insight and ad network Turn. Created by gyro, the ad matches the style of Mad Men and has a potentially deadly ending. We've seen the ad and it's interesting enough. Sadly, we're bound by the laws of embargo-based secrecy and can't show you the ad. But, we think you'll like it. And if not, you can aways "shoot" Turn some hate mail.

UPDATE: The ad is up on the Turn site now so we've shared it below as well. Enjoy.

'Daddy, What Are They Sevens'?


Toronto-based agency Secret Location has created an interactive online film and game called The Sevens. Launched today, The Sevens is a creation that can be enjoyed on a number of levels: as a short film, an interactive game or an immersive mystery in which users can participate.

The Sevens begins with a phone call and contains three puzzles for viewers to solve. In a suburban home, a young girl named Julie is confronted with a series of mysterious symbols that, once arranged in a particular order, unlock a phone number and passcode.
