As you may (or may not) know. we're working with Yahoo! to produce Yahoo! Scene, a site dedicated to the coverage of Cannes (and other conference and festivals. As part pf this coverage, we have lot and lot and lots...and did we say lots? of video. So here a link list to all the videos we've done so far. And, yes, Barbara Lippert is in Cannes and doing her daily video for Yahoo
We guarantee you absolutely will not foresee how this ad ends. We can say this with absolute certitude. Along the way you may wonder if its an ad for a feminine hygiene product or, perhaps, a contraception product or maybe even an ad calling attention to teen pregnancy or rape.
But you will never guess how it ends. Until it ends. And then you will just scratch your head and curse the creative for creating this just because it was "creative."
A video uploaded by BMW Canada which features a driver racing a Series M Coupe through what we're told are cement walls that are cut to fit the shape of the vehicle as it slides through has generated much commentary. Debate centers around whether the walls are real or whether they were digitally added in after the fact. Or if they are just Styrofoam made to look like concrete. No word from BMW Canada but the stunt is impressive.
Of course all it proves is that there are great drivers out there, not that the vehicle, itself, is the only vehicle that can do such a stunt. After all, a well trained stunt car or race car driver could do the same thing with a 1970's era Lincoln Continental Mark VII or whatever that boat of a vehicle was called.
...yeah, we said "want kids," not "screw maniacally" (which can sometimes lead to weebs, but ones this awesome? Less likely.)
This Tony Kelly-directed piece of beauty is about two boys, their intimacy, their engagement and their differences. The story is loose at best but you're not watching it for that; you're watching because it's beautiful, and because it all slips by you to the tune of Debussy's Clair de Lune.
If it feels aimless and ephemeral, that's part of what makes it precious.
Quirky yet delightful Spanish firm PeSeta has partnered with designer Marc Jacobs to produce the Marc Jacobs PeSeta Sailor Backpack, a harmonious marriage of sailor utility and sailor kitschy-chic.
And what better way to promote a line of sailor bags than with a sailor having an ass-shaking bag-inspired fetish fest all over a dock? At least that's what one of their ad people must have been thinking, and evidently the whole world unanimously agreed, because they gave us this magnificent piece of work.
Remember Greenpeace's zealous campaign to get KitKat parent Nestle to stop killing orangutans? New year, new take on the mission.
This time, the target of Greenpeace's gleefully effective marketing is Mattel, whose low-cost packaging options contribute to deforestation in Indonesia. The weapon of choice? Barbie's off-again, on-again beau Ken, who, well, isn't into dating "serial killers" (no, not even the kind with exploding conical bras).
Our super hot friend Amber Lee Ettinger, otherwise known as the infamous Obama Girl, has a new gig. She's hosting a new web show called Gadget Girl from Digital Driver. On the show, Ettinger will make viewers aware of the latest technology as well as offer up tips and tricks.
As far as we can tell, she won't be hosting in a bikini but that's probably a good thing because when Amber's in a bikini, the last thing people are concentrating on is what she's saying. And, to be clear, we don't mean that to be rude. It's just a fact. When you're hot, you're hot. And people are gonna look.
Anyway, if you're a gadget geek who loves to watch hot chicks talk about tech, you're gonna love Gadget Girl. And just as a public service of sorts...if you really, really want to see Amber in a bikini, here she is in all her glory.
With a video that has garnered over 750,000 views on YouTube, Thinkmodo, which produced Times Square Hack, is helping game controller extend get some publicity. The video purports to be a report of sorts on what is said to be a growing trend: nude gaming parties; gatherings in which gamers show up nude and game together.
Of course, nude gaming isn't a thing unless you count drunk, ball scratching guys who are too lazy to get dressed or women who are so hot they can't help but do everything nude just to get attention and drive those of us in view insane with desire.
Nope, it's all just a marketing stunt. And a good one at that.
New York hotel, Yotel, is on the hunt for an efficient luggage handler. And with help from Cunning, the hotel held interviews to find the perfect bellhop. All manner of robots, from RoboCop to the Terminator to R2D2 to Number 5 to that Japanese robot to Data to AI boy to Roomba to Hal and many others were interviewed. Hilarious stuff.
Turns out the whole thing is a riff on the fact Yotel has an actual robot that stores baggage for guests. Pretty cool.
By now, we've seen all manner of urinal advertising but this one serves a beneficial purpose. While not actually measuring alcohol content, the Pissalyzer from Publicis Milan delivered a "take a cab" message to men who pissed in the urinal long enough for it to be assumed they'd consumed a pint of beer. While we're sure this is helpful, we have to wonder if a dude whose just down a few shots is going to piss long enough to get the message.
Anyway, it's a worthy effort and who doesn't like to read stuff while taking a piss. It's better than wondering if the guy in the next stall is checking out your junk.
