As part of a comprehensive, many million dollar campaign for local search engine Yell.com, AKQA, in a first they tell us, created bus sides on 25 buses that use GPS to change the advertising message based upon the bus's location. The approach aligns perfectly with Yell.com's business premise: to deliver local information relevant to one's location.
The agency also created bus shelters which display a map of where you are and allow you to search for things such as cafes, shops, health club, etc. bas upon the location of the bus shelter. While this seems like a very logical use of technology to further a marketing strategy, AKQA was the first to do it which is, perhaps, why this agency wins so many new clients and awards.
Using an online video creation widget they developed which will allow agencies to easily create online video contests, Invoke has launched an online video contest of their own. Called Wind Blows, the contest offers $10,000 to the person who creates the best video for Western Wind Energy, a proponent of wind power. They've put up an admittedly cheesy initial video as an example but we all know you creative types out there can do better. Want $10,000? Check out this contest. And be nice to us for telling you about it and stick our logo in your video somewhere.
Thomas Christensen tells us that during Copenhagen Fashion Week, Adidas placed blue rubber ducks in a fountain with a message on the bottom that read, "I've swum too far - help me get back home! Reward for my return at adidas Original store". Upon visiting the store, Christensen ended up with a t-shirt.
It happens on those long road trips with six of your best friends on the way to a river rafting trip in the middle of nowhere. It happens on those long car rides with the family heading to grandma's house. It happens when you're in the middle of a six hour drive to visit your girlfriend whom you haven't seen in a week and can't wait to jump on top of her the second you see her. It happens when you find yourself on the seedier side of the city. Yes. The dreaded public restroom. Covered in filth. Infested with flies. Dimly lit like a scene out of a horror movie. We've all been though the experience of tiptoeing around the restroom taking extra care not to touch anything. For women, there's the aerial pee position. This commercial for Purell puts you smack in the middle of this nightmare.
The YoungGuns International Advertising Awards group is up to their insightful foolery again to promote the organization's upcoming award show. The site offers creatives who worked themselves to the bone with a multitude of tests and therapies such as a downloadable phlegm test, a Haemorrhoids chart and information on ulcers. There's a nurse to help creatives thourgh the process and there even...who knew...a call for entries form in their too. Witty.
Here's a collection of human rights ads from Youth For Human Rights International which teamed with the Church of Scientology to create 30 PSAs, each of which focuses on a specific "human rights rule." Human rights aside, these ads just remind us how it's just much better to be nice to other people than to be mean.
Hmm. In New Zealand, they call a Hyundai a hyoonday. Interesting. Anyway. Brent found this ha-yoon-day commercial in which two babies hook up and drive to beach and surf. It's just weird enough to be good. Well, at least we think so. You watch it and let us know.
To promote ESPN's Fantasy Football and to smack down Yahoo and CBS Sportsline, Boston's Arnold has created ESPN Fantasy Smack Cards which you can use to send your friends some smack talk. Who knows if it'll do anything for ESPN but it sure will be therapeutic for some who need to get their aggressions out.
To drum up interest for its suburban mom as drug dealer comedy Weeds, Showtime is placing an insert in the August 24 issue of Rolling Stone with a scent strip that smells like, well, weed. Yummy. The show's good too.
At a recent World Series of Poker Gambling Lifestyle Expo (whatever that is) in Las Vegas, poker site, Bodog, at their booth, had a collection of lingerie-clad models giving pillow fights to anyone who wanted to hop on the bed with them. They also video taped it for the person. No doubt, there booth had some serious foot traffic. Check out all the video here.
