Over the years you've probably seen the AdWeak Twitter account. In fact, the dude behind AdWeak was up to his shenanigans long, long before Twitter took over the world. In fact, he's been doing it since 2001 but hasn't updated the site since 2005 though AdWeakj has been active on Twitter since 2009. For the uninitiated, AdWeak pumps out brilliant ad industry-related parody headlines that skewer and poke fun at the industry's inner workings.
Now, AdWeak has teamed with stock footage company Dissolve to launch Advertising Insider, a witty combination of stock footage and AdWeak tweets. Check it out:
Colle + McVoy has discovered the solution to getting agency employees to complete their timesheets; free beer. Yes, free beer.

New York-based humanitarian aid organization AFYA Foundation has teamed with Strawberry Frog to create a video campaign which aims to raise awareness of the need for medical supplies to combat the spread of Ebola in Sierra Leone.
The video, directed by Indrani, puts a human face on the statistic that five children came into contact with the Ebola virus in Texas.
Kyiv-based ad agency Banda and Radioaktive Film are out with a video which aims to garner support for the Ukranian Armed Forces who have had to leave their families, their friends and their jobs to combat Russians in Eastern Ukraine.
The video, which has close to half million views, was created without any government funds on an entirely volunteer basis. It was helmed by New York director Marc Wilkins.
The video shows soldiers doing their jobs as they share what they do in "real life." It carries the tagline, "None of us was born for war, but we are here to protect our freedom."
