Geeks Banged, Phones Found, Foucan Leaps, Meth Murders


- Here's a trailer for The Big Bang Theory, a comedy of geek/glam stereotypes that will probably last all of two seasons. And the saddest part is, I'll probably watch it at some point. It returns April 14 on CBS.

- This stunt by agency New Message for The Phone, a Dutch show where a randomly-placed phone surprises whomever picks it up with a chance to win 25,000 Euros, was called "HILARISCH!" by one a YouTube fan. I didn't find it that funny, but I like that there are people somewhere in the world shouting "HILARISCH!", possibly even as I write this out.

- K-Swiss launched a spot for its Ariake shoe, featuring free running founder Sebastian Foucan. Here is where we explained free running.

- Venables Bell & Partners wants you to know meth kills, or could at least leave you in epileptic spasms while your friends all watch. So don't take it, "not even once." (Tagline!) Think they made this ad shortly after watching Spun?

- Here's a kind of interesting campaign for the Fiat 500. Look at all the people flocking to touch the shiny thing. Don't you wish they'd fondle your creative that way?

Uh, guys? That horrible show has been on the air for at least a year. What are you talking about??

Boy the quality and accuracy has taken a very swift nosedive with all that "new blood" you've brought on board... Lazy whippersnappers.

@B - I sent in the link. At first glance the trailer looked like it was a new show coming out. Show still sucks though.

Um, the show does not suck. It's actually kinda funny especially to anyone who keeps up with the today's geek zeitgeist.
