AdFreak tips us to a new tourism campaign from Australia in which the country has done everything it possibly can to prepare itself for an onslaught of American tourists and tops the whole thing off by asking and only an Australian can, Where the bloody hell are you? Two things we love about this campaign. It's spot on selling of the "brand" and it's use of, as many other Australian advertisers have, the Vividas video player which brings fast, full resolution, full screen glory to online video. Why every other advertiser in the world trying to highlight their work online hasn't dumped Windows Media Player, Quicktime, Real and all those other tiny-screened players in favor of Vividas simply makes no sense to us.
For its Portugal client Credito Agricola, Leo Burnett Lisboa made interesting use of a moving billboard to promote the client's online money transfer service. The board alternates between images of a woman in Italy and a man in Paris but an image of a money transfer receipt remains immovable, glued to the front of the board, illustrating how easy it is to transfer money. See it in action here.
This is just freakish but we love it. It's a campaign for Bubblicious created by Duval Guillaume in Brussells. See the other ad here.
Adverbox highlights a pretty inventive magazine ad for Wonderbra that interactively illustrates ehat a good bra can do for a woman's cleavage. See all the images here.
Flickr user Monkey River Town spotted this billboard on Highway 35 in White Bear lake, Minnesota. Crack masters The Crack Team, headed by Mr. Happy Crack claim "A dry crack is a happy crack." That's actually not true in every instance. See the full image here.
Proving there's a cause group for every single topic in the world, The Privy Group, with help from Saatchi & Saatchi has created an outdoor campaign which consists of a life-sized cut out of a guy taking a piss in various parks throughout New York City. Advergirl has the story.
Rapping about babies and quirky coffee moments are the subject matter in two hilarious promotional commercials (1, 2) for BBC Three's new comedy sketch series Snuff Box. The series is written and performed by Matt Berry and Rick Fulcher. Since we don't live in England, we have no idea who these guys are but if their show is as funny as their promos, we're sure it'll get a few viewers.
To introduce its New Megane and the vehicle's hands free key system, Renault has launched a commercial created by Publicis Net Paris that illustrates just how pissed off one can get when it's so cold the key won't fit into the door lock. This commercial makes getting your tongue frozen to a light pole child's play. The commercial is in French but it works in any language. To view the spot, go the the New Megane website, click the first link under "Entrer," wait an insufferably long time for the Flash site to load then click the image on the left hand side. Or, just use this direct link we just happily received.
Sunil Shibad points to a funny spot from language training and translation company Berlitz in which the difference between sinking and thinking become extremely important.
When one is hoodwinked, the natural reaction is to get mad and start calling people names but we're not going to do that because we think this hoodwink was one of the best marketing stunts to come around in a long time. As we reported in late January, a helicopter with a naked guy hanging from it was spotted at New Zealand's Big Day Out but the stunt went wrong and the guy fell to the ground and was injured. We also received a taped conversation between what was assumed to be a representative of New Zealand's Civil Aviation Authority and a person at DDB, the agency thought to be behind the stunt in which the CAA representative was trying to obtain details of the event.
None of this happened. While we were skeptical at the time and knew New Zealand site Nzgirl had something to do with the stunt, we couldn't get anyone to confirm or deny anything. As it turns out, Nzgirl, which has a reputation of doing crazy, stunts, wanted to top everything they'd done before so they decided to do nothing...except tell a few people they did and let the rumor mill run with it. A dozen people were hired to spread the story about the helicopter and the nude guy and that was it. New Zealand media bit and reported the story as if it had happened albeit with a bit of distrust. Nzgirl reaveals all here.
