So we've all seen those images of the Burger King with Brooke Burke Crispin Porter + Bogusky thrust upon us a while ago. Now, there's videos. There's a video of the King and Burke riding up the seashore Planet of the Apes-style and another of the two laying together catching some sun and taking a walk.

3D Ad Technology Used to Create Stripping Model


Like any inventive new technology, it doesn't take long before the invention is put to use for sex-related purposes. Back in October, 2005, Lexus used 3D video technology to project a moving image of its new model inside a storefront in Times Square. Now, according to The Spunker, a fashion store in Copenhagen Berlin is using the technology to project a very life-like image of a model stripping in the window-front. Hasn't anyone launched iPorn yet? Oh, yea. They have.

Dice Makes Job Search Fun


It takes a lot to amuse us but this game promoting job site dice.com did the trick. It's the classic "your boss sucks" game where you get to take out your aggression following a bosses cocky, buzz-word laden tirade. Don't miss the pizza launcher in the Project manager's office.

Starcom Founder to Head Review of Starcom-Held Miller Account


We've had the pleasure of working for Bob Brennan but when we learned he would be co-presiding over the $300 million Miller media account review, currently handled by Starcom which Bob Brennan founded and has since left, we couldn't help feeling a bit odd about the whole thing.

It seems to us an account review manage by someone who founded an agency involved in the pitch is about as unbiased as a parent judging their own kid in a ice skating competition. Miller says the review is just part of their normal "best practices policy" but as far as we know, best practices doesn't include nepotism.
