• How Low Should We Go?

    / Comments (5)

    This is from The Consumerist back in August, but it’s no less important to contemplate today.

    Sandra, one of their readers, writes, “I received the following advertisement in the mail today. It comes from a Feeny Dodge dealership in Elgin, Illinois. However, it came in an envelope marked “Traffic Division – Department of Ticket Disbursements” from Carol Stream, IL. I thought it was a traffic ticket so I opened the letter. I was surprised to learn that it was actually an advertisement for a local car dealership! Seriously, how low will a company go to get you to read their junk mail?”

    Is this an acceptable tactic to employ to help “break through the clutter?”

    Kodak’s got a new viral promo on the internets that could be the funniest thing we’ve seen all day. Take a gander, and turn yourself into a real-life superhero…or something.

    A television crew films a work by artist Tim Kyle, which is part of the Sculpture by the Sea exhibition, south of Sydney’s famous Bondi Beach, on October 15, 2008. The free outdoor show, now in its 12th year, stretches along the coastline for two kilometers.

  • Lenovo Thinkpad: Grandma Proof

    Holy crap, this is one of those spots we wish we had on our reel. Fantastic in almost every sense (with a little tightening up of the ending). Right down to the soundtrack, old lady casting and slightly blurry shots – just the way grandmama sees through her Coke-bottle glasses.

  • The New Pepsi Logo Looks Like an Asscrack

    / Comments (18)

    Pepsi has redesigned their logo. According to the company, “The white band in the middle of the logo will now loosely form a series of smiles.” We think it resembles something else – a hoochie on display.

  • Mattoni Epic Film Making

    / Comments (0)

    Motionographer just posted this wonderful spot from Mattoni Mineral Water. They note that it’s very similar to a print ad execution done in Brazil for a sandal company featuring Gisele Bundchen, but we don’t really care. This thing’s destined for greatness at the award shows. Agency: MPG SRL., Italy.

  • Sony Bravia: Domino City

    This new spot for Sony Bravia was just released in New Zealand. Nice soundtrack, but the visuals are kind of boring if you ask us. The spot was developed not by Fallon who created the beautiful spots Balls, Paint and Bunnies, but by BATES Singapore. Your thoughts?
