Move Over Google, Hyundai Cars Now Drive Themselves

hyundai_driverless_car.jpg

In a really awesome display of its automated "Smart Caring" driving technology, Hyundai set up a scenario in which stunt drivers leave their vehicles while they are moving allowing the Hyundai's to drive themselves. It's a pretty awesome display of the car's technology.

And all along, we thought it was Google perfecting the driverless car. Of course, this is a closed-course stunt and the cars don't seem to be moving very fast but they do stay in their own lane and they do stop automatically when the stunt truck in front of them stops.

Revealed! Why Men Are 'Less Developed' Than Women

libero_spanish_world_cup.jpg

Spanish football (soccer) lifestyle magazine Libero has the answer to why it appears men are so, well, less developed than men. The answer? The live for the World Cup and they only "grow" once every 4 years when the World Cup makes its global appearance.

Created by LOLA, the video gives all the expected scenarios in which men just can't seem to live up to their female counterparts. It's sort of like all those Super Bowl beer commercials than make men look like bumbling idiots.

sugru_gun.jpg

So how do you go about promoting a glue-like substance that can be molded like putty and forms into strong, waterproof rubber overnight? Why you use it to build the world's most awesome water pistol, of course. And that's exactly what Sugru did.

The brand gathered together a bunch of "scientists" (aka KID and Kream London) to craft a super-awesome, gatling gun-style water pistols that was then used to douse a few more "scientists" with colored water...in slow motion of course.

And, yes, it is very, very phallic.

You Can't View This YouTube Content But You Can Fly to France for 79 Euros

brussels_airlines_blocked_content.jpg

Here's an intriguing use of YouTube. In an effort to promote their flights to France to French-speaking Belgians, Brussels Airlines, with help from BBDO Belgium, used blocked content videos to achieve this goal.

As background, 40% of French speaking Belgians watch TV programs that are broadcast in France rather than those broadcast in Belgium. When a viewer misses an episode of his favorite TV program, it can be watched later online. Great. But only if you live in France. Belgians see "This content is not available in your country."

You Won't Believe the Idiocy These People Display Just to Get A Bag of Fantastic Delights

fantastic_delights_cue.jpg

I must be horribly jaded. If I saw an obvious marketing stunt consisting of a set up that required me to walk through a ridiculously long line when there was no line at all, I'd probably pass by like it was a homeless person. Oops, my bad. That's not the best analogy but you get my meaning.

However, when regular, non-jaded, non-marketing people are presented with the same scenario...just to get a bag of junk food...uh...excuse me...Fantastic Delights, it seems they'll wait forever.

Axe Gives Employees Pheromone-Infused Business Cards. Productivity to Take A Nosedive

axe_pheromone_business_cards.jpg

Well, now. Not only is Axe out to turn women into helpless puddles of desire in the face of their body sprays and deodorants, they're now arming their employees with business cards that will do the same.

Working with Union Toronto, the brand, as illustrated in this video, has created a line of personalized business cards unique to each employee and that contains a pheromone-infused substance that's applied to the card.

The results, predictably, are predictable. But we have to wonder. With all these pheromone-infused business cards floating around the office, how will any work get done when everyone's off in a closet shagging?
