September is cancer awareness month and, fittingly, two new campaigns have launched to Save Boobs. The Noreen Fraser Foundation has created Men for Women Now, featuring male TV and movies stars talking about how much they love boobs and asking for you to send a pledge to the important women in your life – resulting in SocialVibe donating to the foundation. Phew.
In a more confusing effort, ReThink Breast Cancer has developed this teaser with a slow-mo babe strutting her stuff poolside. The URL at the end, Boobyball.com, takes you to info on a fundraiser cruise for breast cancer. Save the Boobs, people. We beg you.
Every year, the TIFF Talent Lab holds an open call for entries to aspiring filmmakers and then selects 25 for the opportunity to network and learn from some of the most revered filmmakers and artists in the world during an intensive four-day program.
After participating in TIFF Talent Lab, the 25 filmmakers are asked to develop a 3-4 minute short film for the RBC Emerging Filmmakers Competition. The films are created based on a pre-determined topic. This year’s theme is water. The top five films will be judged during the 2010 Festival by online voters and an official jury. These spots were developed by BBDO, Toronto along with director Steven Tsuchida of Holiday Films.
After Taylor Swift won Best Female Video last night at MTV’s Video Music Awards, Kayne (high on himself) ran on stage, interrupting her speech and belligerently announcing, “But Beyonce had one of the best videos of all time.” A proper beat-down is coming to this dude sooner or later if he doesn’t learn some manners.
Massive Attack has a new EP out and we’re pretty pleased about the whole thing. You may not be aware that founding member Robert Del Raja, also known as 3D, doubles as a fine artist. Below you can see the semi-redudant work he did for their lastest album cover, and UNKLE’s War Stories, which he also collaborated on as a musician.
That campaign with the hot Danish woman looking for the father of her son is indeed a fake. Politiken.dk (not in English) has an article revealing that the Danish tourist board, along with its agency Grey, is behind the idea. Dabitch over on Adland has the full run-down on the story, including previous commercials in which the actress ‘Karen’ has been in.
Best of all, we like that Karen dropped this comment under our original post,“This is for real, apparently you do not know how best to be in this country. -Karen” Yep. You got us, Karen. And you’ve also pissed off a lot of Danes in the process who don’t like being portrayed as a nation of fun-lovin’ ho-bags.
