Guess that makes sense.
Remember the "flash" or index cards you used to remember spelling words in grade school? Now they're pegged to a key ring and proffered by Thumb Cards for a future in promotions.
Under the banner "Your privacy is an illusion," ValleyWag published this story about a careless intern at Anglo Irish Bank. After frequent absences from work, the kid requested off for Halloween weekend due to an issue at home.
That same night the intern posted a bunch of pictures on Facebook of the Halloween party he apparently ditched work for. The next day, his boss responded to his email and attached an incriminating image of him in costume, then BCC'ed the rest of the office.
"Cool wand," he added in parenthesis.
Burn, baby, burn. But at least his fashion sense didn't go unnoticed.
We're not really sure what these cheesy and somewhat sonically taxing videos (silent film version; red pill; blue pill) are about, but we do know they were put together by Grenar Labs for a company called Vibrisse Libri.
As far as we can tell, those people publish books. Bad ones, if the ads are any indication. And possibly online. Possibly.
Indeed oddity reigns supreme in this French Orangina commercial during which animals with bikini-clad breasts and Speedo-clad packages cavort in some strange mashup of The Jungle Book and Eyes Wide Shut. There's even a little Flashdance in there too, It all culminates with the orgasmic bursting forth of Orangina bottles ridden by Zebras who unleash a Scary Movie-style blast of excitement all over a bikin-clad rabbit. Yes, you read that right.
We love it purely for its over-the-top presentation and we hate that we'll never see it on TV in America. Although, who thought those Herbal Essense orgasm ads would ever fly?
FFL Paris created the spot. Th Mill, Stink and Psyop produced.
We continue to feel confused about Svedka Vodka's interpretations of the future. But confusion from arm's length is way better than getting dragged headlong into Svedka's Fem-bot world, which is exactly they're trying to do with Find Your Future You, a bewildering new marketing effort.
Grow Interactive, the interactive agency that put the site together, said we can upload our pictures and find out what we'll look like in the future. Our future selves can also send us witty text messages lending insight on what all's going down beyond the realms of trackable time.
Messages include the following example: "Hey It's Gender Bender You, mostly we date republican senators and televangelists now."
Anyway, we were having a little trouble finding pictures that matched the criteria for the site so we have no examples to show you. But the agency guy did send us this future-shot of a person called Chrystal.
To promote season five of nip/tuck on FX, and its move from Miami to LA, Hadley Media helped orchestrate a holographic public appearance by actors Dylan Walsh and Julian McMahon in the front office window at McNamara/Troy, the LA-based plastic surgery practice.
Until November 16th, you'll be able to catch the offices and holograms in Hollywood. The sideshow spectacle includes the McNamara/Troy waiting room, a live "patient" and the unwrapping of bandages from an attractive client. Sneak peek and image gallery are available at the site.
Fans can also leave live messages on the answering service. And while you probably won't be able to buy a fake nose, there's plenty of other fake stuff to go around. (Doctors and offices, to start.)
In recent weeks, an Adrants colleague took advantage of the promotion to get one of the good doctors to leave a message on our voice mail about the, uh, "work" we ought to get done. We were bummed, mainly because we had that part done already.
Did nobody notice?
The ad is meant to drive multi-taskers into the arms of the speedy Palm Centro but it feels a little like a Doublemint Gum spot from hell.
See it at AdWeek.
UK mobile telecom Orange hired Poke to come up with a never-ending take on the microsite.
The Good Things Should Never End site includes "100s of wind-up phone chargers [...] as giveaways," hidden in its nooks and crannies, says Poke's Iain Tait, putting method to the madness of spending your workday descending this flash-based world of wonder.
Kudos for the Easter Eggs. They're so under-used.
If you've ever been stuck in Manhattan with the wind blowing and the rain pouring down, you know your umbrella usually breaks around the 12th minute: at the muddy street corner, while a line of taken cabs power down the street.
Broken and defeated by life, you walk a quarter mile for the rain-soaked subway ride.
And we mean tough.
Saying "sucks" to bad luck, an open umbrella is thrown out of a plane with a skydiver, only to remain intact when they both hit the ground. The spot is the elemental soul-sister to Will It Blend? -- a series of spots about a really hardy blender.
(Thanks core77 for bringing it to our attention.)
