Cardboard Robot Brings Tin Man to Life in Streets of LA

cardboard_robot.png

Stardust Studios' Neil Tsai directed a new project for the Cardboard Robot art collective, a street art group led by Mason Brown.

Granted, the world doesn't need another jaded street art society, but we do think it's cool that the man-versus-machine discourse has come to factor into creative play on concrete avenues.

The result was filmed in downtown Los Angeles and onstage at The Source. It's an industrialist's Alice in Wonderland.

Rayban's 'Never Hide' Makes Us Do Bad Things

rayban_bobbing4glasses.png

Here's some more would-be viral insanity for Rayban's Never Hide campaign.

This video requires a "don't try this at home" disclaimer. Because we actually did try this (we get very adventurous after our morning martinis), and hours later, we still have water up our noses.

That shit hurts, and it's not as easy as the guys make it seem to get Wayfarers around your head in a bucket of water.

But we're not the type of people who give up, so we had the interns keep trying until they got the process nailed. This is the kind of stuff college just doesn't prepare you for.

In Case You Missed It, Hilary Has Her Own Obama Girl

hott4hill.jpg

Released in early July, we apparently missed this video featuring Taryn Southern gushing about Hillary Clinton Obama Girl-style. Offering to be Hilary's Oval Office maid or White House aid, Southern sings, "let's seal the deal with a hug and a kiss and put a hot chick in the Oval Office. And bringing on the lesbian vibe, Southern continues, "I know you're not gay but I'm hoping for bi."

Forget Obama Girl, Giuliani Posse Girl Tops Bootylicious Chart

When we viewed the latest Obama Girl video in which she squares off against a trio of Giuliani Girls, we, of course, enjoyed watching Obama Girl, the beautiful Amber Lee Ettinger, shake, twist strut and generally amaze us with her beauty. But, every so often our eyes were distractingly drawn to one of the ladies in the Giuliani posse who seemed to curvaceously jut outward in every direction. With each bend of the hips and thrust of the chest, seemingly impossible curvaceousness filled the video as if Amber Lee weren't even present.

A little digging reveals the woman to be none other than former WWE Diva and model Rebecca Dipietro who does, indeed, posses amazing curves and isn't afraid to show them off. Anyway, as you know, it's probably just us and non one else suffered this distraction from the beautiful Amber Lee but we thought we'd make you queasy by sharing because, well, we like to emotionally mess with our readers.

versace_simpsons.jpg

- In the ever expanding quest to make sure every inch of media space contains some elements of its campaign, the Simpson's Movie campaign has hit the pages of Harpers' Bazaar.

- Grow Interactive has created Disco Dream Ride, a site which promotes Lance Armstrong's fan club and the Discovery Channel Pro Cycling Team. Visotors can webcam themselves and affix their heads to character on the site Trailer Crashers-style.

- Eyewonder has launched a Click-to-Call feature or its rich media ad units.

- Naked people, cock rings and orgasm mops get it on for Method cleaning products. These are the ComeClean people.

- The "world's most boring movie" is supposed to promote paint. We think not.

- Here's the full length Obama Girl vs. Giuliani Girl video we tipped last week.

- First there was Diet Coke and Mentos. Now, there's Carlsberg and Mentos. And it's bad. Really, really bad.

Dodge Dicks Diddling Doggie

dodge_nitro_dutch.jpg

It looks like the creative brief for this Dodge Nitro viral wannabe fell into the hands of some art director's second cousin twice removed who just graduated from the college of middle school humor. Are we supposed to laugh? To cringe? To utter a collective WTF? Oh wait. It's Dutch. That might explain. OK. Kidding. Seriously. Kidding.

UPDATE: Looks like the Dodge corporate folk weren't too pleased with this spot and asked that it be removed from YouTube. Not must to miss though. Just a dog pissing on the Nitro's wheel and then receiving an electrical shock from the Nitro.

Over Stressed Businessman Freaks Out in Hotel Lobby

businessman_lobby.jpg

The really scary this about this pseudo security tape of a business man having a meltdown in a hotel lobby is we've seen very similar things in real life. Clearly, we are way too stressed out but Cisco claims it has the answer with its Unified Communications product, one of those bring it all together business communication wonders you hear so much about but no one actually uses.

Anyway, the video points to Don't Have A Meltdown which is a representation of a psychiatrist's office where the doctor promises cures for freaked out business people. The video is finding widespread success on Break, MySpace, Filcabi, YouTube and all sort of other video sites since its launch a few weeks ago. Ogilvy West created.

Bright House Hunts Down Asterisks

bright_house_asterisk.jpg

We're not sure why a company would position itself as an asterisk hunter when, in fact, it's impossible to run a company, or anything for that matter, without certain ground rules, terms, conditions and guidelines but broadband company Bright House thinks it's asterisk-free and wants to celebrate. So, who are we to stop a company that wants to have some fun with the annoying asterisk found in so many advertisements these days. Here's their Fry Hammond Barr-created commercial and here's the Asterisk Hunter website.

It's A Fembot. It's A Blu-ray Promotion. Nah. It's Just A New Razor

mystery_razor.jpg

Oh no! On no! Please no! Not again. Not another multi-bladed razor. Can't Gillette and Schick just give it up? Of course, we have no idea if this teaser video on YouTube claiming to be "the new face of male shaving" has anything to do with the next six-plus facial razor craze. More likely, it's some new fangled Shave Everywhere-like device destined to rid the male species of even more unsightly body hair.
