McCain Gets will.i.am/MoveOn Treatment, Except without the Love

mccain-satire.jpg

MoveOn.org is circulating this satire of will.i.am's "Yes We Can" Obama video. This time, the candidate in the spotlight is the apparently war-mongering Maniac McCain.

Nice to know the young, liberal and convicted have learned the art of killing with irony. But okay, McCain was totally asking for it when he went all-out with the "Bomb bomb Iran" song. (WHAT WAS HE THINKING?)

It's the Regulation Eco-Take on Valentine's Day!

winterwarm.jpg

Because no holiday is legitimate until it gets its own eco-spin, feast your eyes on Winterwarm by Superhero (with assistance from photographer Richie Hopson).

The premise: don't use heating this winter; hug gratuitously and NEVER LEAVE BED!

The shirts were donated by American Apparel. We didn't get why they kept changing colour at first but then we read they're supposed to be thermometers. Get it?

And in the event that you actually care, the couple really is a couple. Their names are Angeliki Chatzi and Konstantinos Dagritzikos.

Cute. In a we-don't-live-in-sub-zero-temperatures sort of way.

Boone Oakley Supports WGA With Solidarity Campaign

BO_WGA_PencilPin72-1.jpg

While the strike may be nearing an end, Boone Oakley has come to the aid of the Writer's Guild of America with a solidarity campaign along the lines of so many other ribbon-style cause-related campaigns. The lead graphic element in the campaign is a pencil twisted into the shape of a ribbon. The campaign urges writers, directors, actors, crew and fans to wear the pin in support of the writers and to show "media moguls" the WGA is united and won't back down.

Checkout the campaign elements on the Bring Back the Dialogue site.

Have a Heart; Save a Manatee for Mom

manatee.jpg

...because she'll want you to -- way more than she wants that gold necklace, or dinner with you at her favourite restaurant, or a DVD copy of Flashdance.

There's something about this Mother's Day campaign for the Save the Manatee Club that appeals to us. And we're trying really, really hard not to believe it has anything to do with Conan's manatee fetish effort.

Bush-ese Interpreted as 'Hell, High Water' by Greenpeace

gp_hell_highwater_2.jpg

We love a little hell and high water on a Super Tuesday morning. Those things, says Greenpeace, will be the only result of Bush's big plans against global warming.

And since Bush has trouble with the "transparency" thing, GP decided to be transparent for him -- all over the Washington Monument during his "Major Economics Meeting" last week.

Politics: a damn serious business. In the same way falling facedown in a sandbox -- and stabbing your eye out with a stick -- can be considered good times.

Second-Hand Smoke Destroys Gastronomic Experience

tobacco-anniversary-print.jpg

To celebrate the first birthday of Louisiana's Smoke-Free Air Act (Act 815), New Orleans-based Trumpet created this ad, which appeared in newspapers throughout the state.

It features an overturned ashtray with a birthday candle on top. Part of it reads, "For the past year, the Louisiana Smoke-Free Act has increased the flavor and health of Louisiana dishes by removing one toxic ingredient: Secondhand smoke."

We like the unique message (which makes us hungry, actually) and brave use of white space. Happy first birthday, Act 815.

Once again Barely Political's Obama Girl is fighting for her man, Barak Obama. In this video, she take on the role of Super Obama Girl and kicks the crap out of Obama's competition like Superman cleaning up Gotham city. Of course, it's all to call attention to next week's Super Tuesday and urge people to get out and vote.

Bulging Nubile Breasts Command Attention to Statutory Rape

Familyneedhelp.jpg

This campaign baffles. While the Family Violence Partnership in Milwaukee wants people to realize statutory rape in a bad thing, the campaign, which features young girls with big (digitally enhanced, we assume) breasts, sexualizes these young girls into objects of desire. Now maybe the campaign is trying to say no matter how huge a girl's breasts are or how hot she might be, if she's under 18, she's still off limits but to "normal" people, it sends a very queasy, disconcerting message.
