    by / August 23, 2018 /

    A new campaign designed to reduce acts of aggressiveness and impulsive violence in everyday life is garnering attention today. A creative team at Grey London stumbled on the fact that it takes 90 seconds for the chemicals associated with anger to flush out of your system. Give it that long before you react and perhaps cooler heads will prevail. The 90-second spot tells this story, along with a print ad that takes about 90 seconds to read. Nice work.

  • Aged ‘Dunkirk’ Characters Deliver Important Announcement About Movies from Canal+

    by / July 10, 2018 /

    The "remake" version of Christopher Nolan's Dunkirk is true to its classic air battle scene — except that the pilots seem to have aged a bit.

Luckily for its subscribers, CANAL+ has the first broadcast rights on major films in France. Agency: BETC[Read More]

  • What Happens in Vegas Campaign Takes on a More Thoughtful Tone

The new “Only Vegas Moments” ads were produced by R&R Partners and were cut from a series of short YouTube movies about “adult freedom.” The ads are a clear departure from the whimsical “What happens here, stays here[Read More]

  • Thinkmodo Returns with Viral Video Stunt to Promote Cobra Kai Sequel Series

    by / May 18, 2018 /

    To promote YouTube Red's new Karate Kid sequel series, Cobra Kai, thinkmodo helped engineer this elaborate prank that finds an underdog out-muscling a bully on the streets of New York. Shot over two days, the scene was recreated again and again to catch as many reactions as possible using three hidden cameras and up to eight wireless mics. After each showdown, it took about 10 minutes to reset the scene, and presumably even longer to clear out all the people who had jus[Read More]
