Creative Department Douchebag Raps


Here's something we all want to see. It captures every stereotype that defines that pompous, hipster dickhead next to you that calls himself a creative. Wallow in the hilarity of the Creative Department Douchebag by Pete Johnson.

Juan Show Pokes Fun At One Show


On the same day of the One Show Festival, this weird site called The Juan Show was launched that asks people to send in their ads for consideration by June 1st. Winners will be announced June 15. The URL is registered to Austin agency GSD&M and a call to the agency confirms the site is, in fact, a parody of the One Show. Just something to poke fun at the whole award show thing. On the site, there's a number you can call to leave a message for Juan. There's video reviews of ads by Juan. There's even a Cafe Press store full of hats, t-shirts and other stuff. Winners get a Gold Toothpick Award. We love it.

Meatylicious March PETA's Worst Nightmare


Those cheeky United Kingdom citizens love their meat and hate PETA so much they've gone out and created a site called Meatylicious to drum up support for what they hope to be the world's biggest ever virtual march to celebrate meat. The site's got all sorts of fun meat facts and a "Meatyfest" with includes such gems as "Eat with your mouth open so others can enjoy it," "A man with no meat is no man at all" and "A good steak is like a sunny day: bloody lovely." PETA will love this. The work was created by London agency Grand Union.

Simple Pepsi Ice Block Game Amuses


Considering our amazingly short attention span and simplistic mindset, here's an online game we can spend some serious time with. In fact, it's perfect for those who love Pavlovian-like response/reward simplicity. It's a game for Pepsi Japan in which you become a running man who must punch his way through ice block walls. Click at the right time, and the punch breaks through the ice. Click at the wrong time and you do a body slam into the wall. We made our way through about eight walls before figuring we'd better get back to work. Give it a go here.

Marmite, Mammaries Make Mess


While FishNChimps claims this is a new viral from Marmite, we could swear we've seen this poor mother before. Since we can't remember anything past today, we consulted the always reliable Adrants archive, didn't find it so, of course, we are, in fact, deeming this new. Maybe we're just suffering some sort of deja vu or maybe it really is new. Enough of that. The spot features a new mom sitting in her dark kitchen eating a piece of Marmite covered toast while nursing her baby. Suddenly, the baby has a problem. I big problem. A problem that, because this baby is breast feeding, thereby sucking down the very same nutrients mom's putting in her mouth, makes us wonder if eating Marmite is actually a good thing.

PC Gets Crapped On in Apple Spoofs


Following the long standing rule that all Apple ads will be spoofed, a guy named Reece James has created three spoofs of the current Apple campaign that compares the Apple to the PC. They're charmingly entitled Crap, Porn and Sharing. Give them a look over at Adland.

Memphis Thunderstorm FAA Video Makes Perfect FedEx Commercial


John Brock sent us this video someone made of FedEx planes making their way around thunder clouds as they, and the thunderstorm, head into Memphis. It's hilarious, really, but amazing as well to think that activity is just every day normal life to plane pilots and airport flight control staff. Brock thinks FedEx should turn this into a commercial. We couldn't agree more.

Ford Pick Up Gets Chrome-Over


While th rest of the Ford campaign is off doing its idiotic "Bold Moves" thing, this Ford F-150 is getting a Chrome-over courtesy of some special effects by digital studio !mpossible Picture. And, no, that's not a typo. they spell their name with an exclamation point. JWT developed the spot and Oasis Films' Jeff Smith directed. It's not so bad.

Axe Wants Guys to Get A Girlfriend


While it might be really cool to be some sort of world record holder for solving Rubik's Cube or making amazing quarters shots or creating little Jaws puppet movies, Axe thinks thinks otherwise and wants these guys to go out and get a girlfriend. Of course, Axe is there to help with its body deodorant. There's three spots in this South African campaign which you can view here, here and here.

Handicap Parking Spots Take On New meaning


Miami Ad School students have created an interesting campaign for the United Nations Mine Action Service that drives home the message by making every parking spot in a lot a handicap spot. Powerful. Confusing if you're trying to park but powerful.
