If you don't mind robots swearing at each other while bitching about the creative process you'll love this cheeky-ish video pimping xtranormal Text-to-Movie software. It's a brilliant take on the expectations and misunderstandings more than a few people have regarding what's involved in the proper development of creative
So yea. October 2 is Lee National Denim Day, a fundraiser for breast cancer research. Pimping its participation, DDB Chicago created this cute little video in which a woman is a bit shocked at what she feels and experiences when she puts on a pair of Lee jeans.
In the promo, the woman whisked away on a flying seahorse through the clouds until she falls of the things and lands back in reality. Namely, the dressing room of some random retailer. We're sure all form of fantsay have occurred in dressing rooms around the world but orgasm-causing jeans and seahorse rides is a new one on us.
We're not really in love with this second outing for the National Campaign to Prevent Teen Pregnancy and Unplanned Parenthood in which a Viagra commercial shoot is spoofed. It's just not that funny. Maybe it's because it's Advertising Week and we're expecting greatness. Oh wait. Advertising greatness? The two words don't even belong in the same sentence. Sorry about that.
Well anyway. Here it is.
OK so that headline is a near rip-off from Agency Spy but there aren't many ways to encapsulate the content of this new commercial for the Susan G. Komen breast cancer organization. In the commercial, we see shot after shot of women cupping their breasts as they pledge allegiance to their girls, hooters, tatas and gazongas.
Yes, the American Pledge of Allegiance has been re-written as a boob joke. A book joke for a good cause, of course.
Why should your feet be left out of the fun? Buy them some Bianco Footwear and give them an organs. Yes. Seriously. According to this commercial, Bianco Footwear will, indeed, give your feet an orgasm.
We have absolutely no idea what this commercial is for but...oh wait...it's for medical company Draeger AG but still. So they make medical and safety equipment but the concept of this ad escapes our simple mind. Yea, we get that a guy's having a wonderful fantasy while under some kind of drug and he wants more of the drug when a nasty nurse attempts to remove the mask from his face as he lies in a hospital bed but what exactly are they trying to sell here?
Dragaer delivers great drugs? Great drugs create great hallucinations? Nurses are nasty? Men in puffy organ-shaped costumes always get the hot girls? Inhaling gives you a LIfestyles of the Rich and Famous sort of life? We are at a loss. Please help us.
This new ad from McCann Erikson Duddeldorf for the Dusseldorf Panthers borders on gross but hey, it's advertising and we like things that are different. And this is different. We're not quite sure how it actually promotes football...uh American football...as in NOT soccer...which...is actually called football in Germany.
Confused? We were too for a minute. OK so the ball in the guys arm is clearly not round which is the point the ad tries to make. As in American football...not European football...as in NOT soccer...as in the game where grown men collide with each other on purpose in order to move a ball down the field.
Oh that's so Neanderthal compared to the ever so graceful soccer...uh football. Oops, that would be American soccer. Wait, what? Football? Soccer/ We are so confused.
OK so how do you raise money for the hungry? You spend a lot of money erecting tables and 200,000 place settings. And rather than actually feed 200,000 people, you just use the whole thing as a fund raising stunt which, in and of itself, isn't a bad thing. It just might have been a bit nicer to actually feed the hungry as well as call attention to their plight.
The stunt comes from Y&R Israel. It's for the Charity Organization and consisted of 1.3 kilometers of empty dinner table.
Where's the beef?
Sorry Sean, Dan's talking about both kinds of spirits and I'm not missing this. It began as an innocuous enough of a PR announcement:
"Actor, screenwriter, musician and now distiller Dan Aykroyd, whose credits include Saturday Night Live, The Blues Brothers, Ghostbusters and Driving Miss Daisy, will sign purchased bottles of his Crystal Head Vodka at the PA Wine & Spirits store at 1218 Chestnut St., Philadelphia, from 4 p.m. to 6 p.m. on Thursday, Sept. 10."
Until you Googled Crystal Head Vodka. How do you not love this guy after watching him talk about spirits? (8 min clip below.) Looking back, the UFO doc sure makes sense now. And the $49.99 pricetag? Genius! People always pay more for the paranormal.
