Lingerie Localized, Faith Pops Corn, Wii Wins, Drivers Challenged


- Oh we've all seen this intentional censorship thing before in countries that don't love skin but hey, in the name of providing comprehensive coverage of the worldwide advertising landscape [Ed. Huh? You've got to be friggin' kidding!], we must share with you these CHANGE lingerie ads which were designed for the Saudi Arabian market.

- Here's an interesting sound mix from DDB Londo for Volkswagen. The agency (more accurately, it's production company the band, Orbital) did a quick shot edit of the commercial using sounds generated within and around the car.

- Faith Popcorn thinks "'Sex & the City: The Movie' comes at just the right time for a nation exhausted politically, emotionally and financially - and signals a growing desire to escape that idea-strapped marketers can use to their advantage." OK.

- Ego stroke: Leo Burnett's "Wii Would Like to Play" for Nintendo's Wii won the Grand Effie at the 40th Annual Effie Awards.

- This AMV BBDO-created game for the UK's Driving Challenge campaign aims to call attention to the inattention caused by talking on a mobile phone while driving. During the game, you must hit the space bar when a caler asks a question and count the number of red, yellow and grey t-shirt-wearing pedestrians cross the rod in front of you. I don't think I could do that while not on the phone!

- Brokaw copywriter Mark Mckenzie interviews Alex Bogusky.

Orbital is a BAND - not a production company. Or weren't you waving fluorescent plastic bits around in the air like you just don't care in the nineties Steve? ;)

Even non-logged in peeps can read some of the credits here;

Greetings to you and your family in the name of God,in my search for a reliable and God fearing person and having gotten your contact through prayers and pains taking efforts via searching i made on the internet on my bed side. Presently, I'm in a hospital where I have been undergoing treatment for Oesophagi Cancer .

Though its a sad and long story but I will cut it short for your quick and easy understanding. I am Judith Bruno (Mrs), widow to Late Mr. Edward Bruno, former Defence attachee to Benin Embassy in Greece. My husband was murdered alonside our only son Elvis by those who are envious of his position in the same office.

Before his death he made a vow to use his wealth for the down trodden,orphanages and the less privileged in the society. Having known my condition I decided to donate this fund to an individual or better still a God fearing person who will utilize this money the way I am going to instruct here in. I want an individual that will use this fund and provide succor to poor and indigent persons, orphanages, and widows and for the propagating peace.

I took this decision because I do not have any child that will inherit this money and my husband relatives are not inclined to helping poor persons and I do not want my husband's hard earned money to be misused or spent in the manner in which my late husband did not specify. I do not want a situation where this money will be used in an ungodly manner.
please send me the following information
1: YOUR NAME: ========
2: YOUR ADDRESS:======
3: YOUR PHONE NO: =====
4: YOUR FAX NO:=======

What is required of you is your honesty, trust and sincerity. Any delay in your reply will give me room in sourcing for another individual for this same purpose.
May God Almighty bless you.
Judith Bruno (Mrs)
