BP Gets (a Little) Better, MySpace Backlashes, Sicilians Sell Alibis, Ideas Get Buried (Crosses and All)


- Oh, if only gasoline fumes smelled as nice as these candy-coated BP ads look. Meet the trippy A Little Better campaign, the result of possibly too much inhalation.

- MySpace doesn't work for everybody's agenda, and apparently the people you're trying to reach may judge your business by your personal social network. Who'd've guessed. Well, life on MySpace (if you can call it that) is still going swimmingly if you're Obama.

- A Bucharest-based Sicilian started a website service called Babalucio. Sound fishy? Wait until you find out what it's for. We hate to be spoilers but we can't help it: they sell alibis.

- Germany's Getty Images brings us to where ideas go to die. We're not sure what the idea cemetery is selling, but the dedicated website has a handy function for picking grave markers, selecting an idea to bury (photo upload included! YES) and then e-mailing it out and about.

We thought of shooting some over to an agency or two but it's too close to ad:tech to do that safely.

I only put up that Babalucio site so you and Steve could meet in the middle of the US, somewhere exciting, like Dubuque, Iowa. Then create the perfect alibi by pretending to be in Cannes doing serious ad stuff along the Croisette!

Why George, how did you know it has been my life's dream to find myself in Dubuque?

Because women move in strange, mysterious, and to men, completely unfathomable ways. That's why we love you and put up with you. Having said that, my wife is the luckiest woman in the world!
