Wexley Wears, Smirnoff Explained, Spiderman Crawls, Ninja Returns


- Now you can get t-shirts from that weirdly-named agency Wexley School for Girls.

- If you were ever curious about the history of Smirnoff Vodka, Paranoid US and JWT(New York) have crammed hundreds of years into sixty seconds.

Aside from the fact all that nudity and porn seems to slow DailyMotion to a crawl (and the play/pause button in the middle of the video that prevents you from getting a decent screenshot), here's a pretty cool stop motion commercial for Big Yellow self storage.

- Spiderman is all over New York.

- Oh look! Another ad agency makes its debut in Second Life.

- Seems the Ninja is now a trend. First G4 did it. Now, Oregon State Lottery is going Ninja.

- George Parker says the new Maytag campaign sucks.

Microsoft also has a new campaign for Forefront that uses ninjas ... actually the website is pretty cool. www.easyeasier.ca ... please note that I do work for the agency responsible ... this is not some underhanded promotion, just thought I would mention it since you mentioned ninjas

hmm... i really don't see why every type of lottery that is asian in origin deserves a ninja spot... heck, Georgia State Lottery used an elderly ninja-"master" in a somewhat racist commercial for their new keno promotion(I actually received hate-mail for posting it on my site).

Don't get me wrong, I am completely pro-ninja.. just like how I am pro-pirate as well, but it's starting to seem like anytime a team needs to come up with a visualization/campaign for anything oriental, ninja is the go-to method. Anyone else noticing this or is it just pure coincidence that all these spots are coming out at the same time?
