Honda Fit is sponsoring Evite's new Party Personalities, a section which allows people to create custom user profiles to make their Evites more customized with party avatars to match either their personality or the theme of the created party invitation.Oddcast's Voki powers the feature which also allows for the inclusion of voice messages within an invitation.
Come on send us one. Even a fake one.
To drum up some business, YouIntern -- which launched in February -- is giving a $10 iTunes gift card away to one lucky person who registers on the site.
YouIntern is where ad students and creativity-starved agency execs can find one another. (Just ... not in the craigslist hook-up sort of way.) We love its simple but totally self-entitled "Freedom from coffee and copies" manifesto.
Agencies can post internships and give advice, like the CSO of StrawberryFrog does here. And internships can be rated. Modernista, for example, scored a 4.4 out of five.
Passions got you all hot and bothered? Cool off with Sudz, one of the eight puzzles that Soap Opera Digest debuted in its new casual gaming section, courtesy of Arkadium. Also available: Mah-jongg, Sudoku, Spider Solitaire and Word Search.
But wait! This isn't just a cheap effort to cash in on idle traffic. Two of the games, Jigsaw and Wordsearch, can be customized to feature the faces of soap stars or current magazine covers. (Looking for love, or at least the right letters? Let Blair Redford show you the way.)
Words and themes can also be given a Dynasty twist, as needed.
We love a guy that's man enough to kiss his own ring, shortly before molesting an empty dance floor with the old-school running man.
Except in this 1989 revisionist history piece for Utah Saints' Something Good '08 (produced by Between the Eyes, London and Sleeper, LA), the running man is new-school, and MC Hammer's a gangster on the market for moves. Guess who he steals his trademark shake from? -- a white guy in Cardiff! Of course.
No word from the good reverend on where he managed to score those sassy genie pants, though.
After March 1, which is when this site goes live, it may well be the case that finding your match was never easier. (If your match happens to be a two-ton 4 x 4 in gun barrel gray.)
TruckMatch.com is where truck buyers and sellers can find happy harmony with low transaction rates. To generate some love, Kelly/Russell Advertising put together a few B2B spots that draw a parallel between finding mates online -- a tricky business -- and finding the perfect pickup. Here are two more:
o "As with online dating, when it comes to truck buying, it's what isn't revealed that should worry you."
o "Finding the right match online can be tough. Until now, finding the right truck wasn't any easier."
We dig it.
Think of it as Purple Internet Marketing's 12-step plan for online marketers. Except with more steps. The big premise: "A website isn't a marketing medium."
"A website," the founders argue, "is a catalyst to marketing opportunities."
But don't take our grimace for it; see trusty testimonials from people like you!
You know method: people against dirty? We love how their ad copy is always a little provocative, but not so saucy that you can point fingers and go, "HEY, that's DIRTY!"
We opened our emails this morning and found ourselves face-to-face with this promotion for method's latest "Bathroom Buddies": le scrub + little bowl blu. (You know, like your favourite song!)
Suddenly tag-team toilet cleaning time seems ... sexy. And strangely mod.
Sprintcuts, a handy-dandy Sprint campaign, gives tips on how to quick-peel a banana and dry nail polish in a blink.
The campaign leads people to Waitless.org, which shares other somewhat-productive tips on "time rebates" that are supposed to leave you with the sense that Sprint = time savings.
We've actually seen this spot, Instant Baby Soothe, a few times on either Hulu or ABC.com. We thought it was cool, but until this very moment we had no idea whose ad it was. Which would actually be helpful, because then we'd know who to blame when our relatives "WTF?" us as we carry their spawn to a nearby sink.
Big-ups to Candace for sharing.
Incredible Inc -- which is angling for that vintage comic book feel reeeeally hard but totally missing it -- is a promotion for Xerox's ink printers. Observe how the superheros have been subtly clothed in standard print cartridge colours: cyan, yellow, black and magenta(ish).
If you're bummed about your creative inability to contribute a musical mash-up to Obama's viral war chest, we're found your solution.
Become part of the fabric of "Yes We Can"! Yeah, the video looks all screwed up and snowy for a reason. Mouse over the images and you'll see snapshots of upload-happy Obama worker bees. Just hope they vote, Obama!
