Wool Keeps Your Ass Warm

wool_ass.jpg

Likely a spoof or a sick twisted joke by a local farmer, this billboard reverses the whole men and sheep thing, adds a pig and calls it good by all the tagline, "Keeping You Ass Warm Since 1856." Hilarious. And really dumb.

George Bush Doesn't Read Enough

bush_read.jpg

There's probably something funny about this Toronto SimplyAudioBook.com billboard featuring George Bush but we're so not into politics and it's too early in the AM to figure it out. Anyway, you're all a lot smarter so if you want, feel free to let us in on the joke.

Chickens Aren't Horny, Teenagers Are

This outdoor board for Gold'n Plump Chicken carryies one of the most straight forward, un-hipsterized messages we've seen in a long time.

St. Louis Wants to See Your Nuts

We're thinking "Show Me" state, Missouri, didn't quite have in mind what the rest of us take away after reading this billboard which carries the headline, "The show-me your nuts state."

Giant Ass Negates Need For Morning Coffee

Somehow we think Starbucks and Dunkin Donuts might not like this billboard for Joe's Jeans. After all, who needs a cup of coffee to wake up after passing by a giant, naked ass like this staring you in the face?

East River Barges Added to List of Places Formerly Ad-Free

east_river_barge_ad_dow.jpg

It would seem tug boats have enough to do pushing barges up New York's East River without slamming into one another but Dow seems to think adding gigantic billboards will make it easier for other tug boat captains...and a few thousand New Yorkers...to see the barges. Especially with meaningless ad drivel like "The Human Element is The Element of Change."

Jim Striebich's got some comments and a full sized version of the image.

Cadillac to 'Wild Post' For Younger Audience

59_Cadillac_Cadster.jpg

As part of a new campaign which will included magazines and TV, Cadillac's new agency, Boston-based Modernista, will also use wild postings in several metro areas in an attempt to get its jiggy back and reel in some new demo segments the automaker is calling "alphas," move-ups" and "hot moms." Recent research the company did revealed many people younger than the typical Cadillac demo were familiar with the Escalade, likely due to its hip-hop status and appearances on HBO's The Sopranos, but didn't know the company had any other relevant vehicles. To address the desire to retain existing older customer while bringing in new, younger customers, the campaign will bring on a little attitude, highlight the insignia and explain the model line-up. The campaign breaks in August.

BMW Billboard Provides Many Options For Car Buyers

Apparently, the client, BMW of Bridgeport, CT, loved this billboard so much, they asked the agency, VogtGoldstein to create a series. Perhaps something like, "From up here I can see New York and I wish I lived there instead of here." Or "From up here, I can see BMW of Greewich and it looks like they have a much better selection of cars." Give it your best shot VogtGoldstein.

Brine Brings It, Pigeons Protest, Bond Bonds, Billboard Ignored

QueenRally_150.jpg

- Here's a couple (1, 2) of new ads for Brine Lacrosse featuring lacrosse athletes who, in their own words, tell stories about how they became the person they are today. If would could read the copy, we'd tell you if they were good or not.

- Pigeons staged a protest in Toronto's Queen's Park to voice their jealously over not being part of the Toronto Zoo animal country club. Protest images here and here.

- To call attention to the Charlie Higson Young Bond series of books which focus on the life of a young James Bond, Cake has created an engaging microsite with book features, forums, games, downloads and a newsletter.

- George Parker says Niel French should step in and takeover for departing Cannes Lions CEO Penny Reid.

- Oh, and we're just not gonna write about that stupid Emily and Steve fake billboard/blog thing because, well, we don't feel like guessing and we're just gonna wait until all is revealed.

- But, we will write about this cool, twisted lamp post in Antwerp featured on CoozOr which promotes Superman Returns because, well, because there's booty in the shot and we haven't fulfilled our booty quotient yet today.

- Copyranter points to a couple campaigns that seem to require those who purchase a condo to be at least as tall as the condo tower and those who want to work at Radio Shack must be extremely overjoyed.

Sharks Attack New York!! Well, Sort Of

shark_week.jpg

To promote its Shark Week, airing July 30 - August 4, Discovery Channel has hung a 446 foot long inflatable shark atop its Silver Spring, MD building. They're calling it the biggest Shark Week stunt ever. To accompany the inflatable, street teams with pun-filled names like Bight University Chewleaders, will roam the streets of New York. A team of surfers with surf boards will wander about apparently to create intrigue or to cause New Yorkers to wonder if The Day After Tomorrow or Deep Impact are coming true. Bight University Faculty members will quiz New Yorkers on their knowledge of shark fact and myth. If we have a choice, we'd rather be approached by the Chewleaders rather than some surfer dude or some pocket protector-wearing professorial type.
