Mr Happy Crack Cracks Crack Joke


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.

Church Says Sex Doesn't Have to Be Lame


Grammar-challenged Adpunch points to a refreshing campaign from Granger Community Church which is promoting a five-week discussion series called Pure Sex during which the church will openly support its belief that God wants everyone to have great sex. The series will cover topics such as porn, lust and whether to inform your spouse about your latest trip to Vegas.

The series is being promoted with a billboard campaign which points to a microsite called MyLameSexLife on which sex's fun factor is gleefully lauded.

Ugly White Babies Prevalent In African City's Ads


In some sort of odd cultural twist, ugly white babies appear to be omnipresent in ads in the mostly black city of Goma, Congo in Africa. What message this sends, if any, we have no idea. We just thought we'd pass it along for you to discuss. Bigger image here.

Fountains Across Europe Adorned With Schweppes Bottles


Duval Guillaume Antwerp has created an ambient (cool word for out of home) campaign that will transform fountains across European countries into Schweppes bottles illustrating the product's sparkling effervescence. Though we're not sure we'd like to enjoy beautiful fountains across Europe adorned as Schweppes bottles, we will say this is most certainly a show stopper in terms of garnering notice for the product.

HBO's 'Big Love' Gets Wedding Cake Love


To promote HBO's upcoming series, Big Love, a drama starring Bill Paxton which centers on polygamy, HBO online agency Deep Focus sends along a unique, in-house promotion HBO is doing that places little signs promoting the show atop wedding cakes in display windows of bakeries. Pretty nifty if you ask us. See a close up image here.

Suspended Girl Dipped in Blue Promotes Album


Now here's an ad for a CD you don't see very often. We leave it to the music aficionados to inform us whether or not this image makes any sense for the album being promoted.

UPDATE: In comments, a reader provides more detail, writing, "Well, actually, the CD is quite cool. Not so very new, though. The singer is also a model and obviously endeavours to do it all in a very arty-crafty way. There is also a DVD with bonus material - all very artistic, as well. Not very much like the usual mainstream Jessica-Simpson crap. It is indeed cool artwork. So yes, the whole thing makes sense in a way."

Sean John Wants You to be Unforgivable


These new posters shot by Bucky Turco for Diddy/P. Diddy/Sean Combs/Sean John or whatever the hell he calls himself promoting his fragrance "Unforgiveable" are just that. Who exactly aspires to become the multi-chained, tongue-wagging, multi-female bedding man portrayed in this ad. Oh wait. Sorry. Every guy does. Carry on.

Levi's 'Denim Monsters' Come to Life


Back in June 2005, we wrote about a Levi's promotion which placed "Denim Monster" artistic structures in San Francisco's Union Square. At the time, they were, apparently, static structures that didn't move. Now, it seems, a video has surfaced showing these "Denim Monsters" now move about causing double-takes as the creature walks down the sidewalk. We don't know if this is a recent development ot not but we like it a lot.

David Hasselhoff Humps Pepsi Bottle Cap


Apparently, in Australia, it's acceptable for David Hasselhoff to hump a bottle cap Elvis-style for Pepsi on a billboard. I thought he was banned to Germany. Experience the full size image of this abomination here.
