  • Microsoft Shifts 'I'm A PC' Campaign to the Users

    / Comments (5)

    This from AdAge, “The latest spots are a compendium of consumer-generated content based on “I’m a PC,” which began airing last month. The new ads, which began running yesterday, string together what Microsoft calls “real PC users” from around the world who uploaded a video to Windows.com.”

    Anyone buying this campaign? Are these people you relate to and want to be grouped with? It’s making us love our Macs more and more each day.

  • Cancel-Out 2008 Via TDA

    / Comments (1)

    TDA Advertising & Design has launched their very own get-out-the-vote effort. It’s called Cancel-Out 2008. Their theory: if you don’t vote for your candidate, you aren’t able to cancel out a vote for the other candidate. So they’re encouraging people to find a politically-opposed friend or enemy, pair up with them, and pledge to cancel out their vote on November 4th.

    To help people out, they’ve created a Facebook application, Cancel-Out 2008, that pairs them up with their cancel-out buddy/non-buddy for all the world to see. A Cancel-Out-Meter also measures which candidate is ahead in the nationwide cancel-out.

    They’ve also created a blog that provides information on how to vote, as well as the Cancel of the Day – pairing of notable people who will certainly be canceling-out on Election Day (e.g. Ashton Kutcher and Bruce Willis; Socks the Cat and Barney the Dog).

    E-cards encouraging the cancel-out are provided at the blog, with messaging like, “I hope our friendship can survive the election, but I’m still cancelling your vote.” Recipients of these scathing e-cards are sent to the Facebook application to complete the cancel-out.

  • Extra-Large News for Denver's The1stMovement

    / Comments (5)

    Interactive shop, The1stMovement, is movin’ and shankin’ in three impressive ways. Effective November 1st, they’ll be out of the Tech Center and into the new TAXI development at 3457 Ringsby Court, #302 in Denver’s River North neighborhood. Large! They’ve also hired David Schell as Creative Director – previously of texturemedia before the company merged with Crispin Porter + Bogusky four months ago. Extra-Large! Huge news for a relatively new shop on the scene (who also won Silver at the 2008 W³ Awards for client G4TV) we fully expect to keep making waves.
