Pity the peppy pepperoni and the odoriferous onion who, in a backhanded celebration of Hungry Howie's flavored crust pizza, have to take a backseat to the chain's "completely unique," eight flavored delight which surrounds its pizza's, Yes, once again, pizza makers will do anything to get people to eat the lowly crust. But at least Howie's, in light of every other pizza chain tweaking its crusts, can do it in a "yea, whatever" way that you have to admit is at least a little bit funny, right?

German pen company Stabilo, much like a 16 year old boy sorting through the girls in gym class to choose the one who will fuel his masturbatory endeavors while trying to fall asleep that evening, has crafted an ad only a 16 year old boy would appreciate. Oh who are we kidding? Every guy from 8 to 108 will love this ad. After all, when it comes to certain thoughts, behaviors and desires, guys never really grow up.
Because dividing us from our workday routine isn't ambitious enough, Wrigley's Candystand is doing its best to keep us from Thanksgiving family fun time too.
The new game is called Headcase. It's got an old-school Nintendo feel and you gather coins and break stuff with your head. Plus, you're pretty much walked through every level by helpful little information bubbles. It's not super challenging but if you're the type of person who enjoys the cheap high that follows immediate gratification, you will easily become a fan of Headcase.
Shit, we wrote too soon. A series of spikes surprised us and now we're dead.
So Lucky Brand Jeans, the company that traversed the States this past summer with its Denim Highway flower power bus, brings us Friday the 23rd, a Friday the 13th-style promotion complete with movie trailer that hypes its buy-one-get-one-free sale which, despite the title runs from November 18 to December 1. Of course, offering a sale on the biggest shopping day of the year is the entire point. Nothing's usually on sale that day because everyone is primed to spend ridiculous sums of money on pointless purchases anyway.
The LG Life's Good UGC contest is coming to a close and out of almost 920 entries in toto, prime meat has been whittled to 20.
Each won a Chocolate phone, or a portable DVD player if they happen to be living in Canada. A winner among them hasn't yet been chosen by viewers.
In Christmas Dinner, a bustling family talks to each other with nothing but quotes from movie classics, presumably rented at Blockbuster.
Nothing warms our hearts like hearing a little girl go, "Say hello to my little friend!"
Cute ad (courtesy of DDB, Toronto), but will it save Blockbuster from deathwatch status?
We just found out about an online music label called RCRD LBL, which lets users download MP3 tracks from new and seasoned artists for free.
This is a decent contender to what's already out there for the following three reasons:
- It's legitimately sponsored, and sponsors don't mess with the tracks
- It's not all ad-heavy and slow like OHHLA.com
- It's gritty and cool without feeling seedy as hell like AllofMP3.com before it got pwned by The Man
On iTunes, just below the album art and above the artist name, you get a little line of text that says, "Get free music at RCRDLBL.com." That's something we can live with.
Without really saying it because, after all, what marketer really can in their ad campaigns, Stanley Works is telling us to fuck things up or, more precisely, to fuck things up beyond all repair using its Stanley Fubar site. So if you want to get your aggression out smashing toilets, sinks, pianos, armoires and even a bunny (well, not really) with the strangest tool you've ever seen, Stanley provides you those items and a burly construction crew to aid you with your destructive tendencies.
"Trust all wheel drive, not the weatherman." Big grins for those who can point to the irony in this campaign. See ads here.

All told, we like it all right.
Part documentary, part GPS-enabled tracking system, this Martin Agency-created website for BFGoodrich celebrates the 40th anniversary of the Baja 1000. The GPS-enabled component of the site lets people track the position and stats of drivers as the traverse the thousand mile course. It's pretty simple and strait forward but we're sure there's some interesting technology behind the site powering the GPS component. If you're into this race, this seems to be one of the ways to stay in touch with the action
