Back together again

Love an ad that takes a while to reveal it's charms.

What I'd really love to know though is how long it took to go from billboard one to billboard two.

Neko Funjatta?



It's got cats. Dancing. And it's from Japan. Nuff said really...

Iain Tait says...

Not sure if I completely agree with Iain on this one. But that doesn't mean we shouldn't stop loving what we do and fighting passionately for our ideas.

Sony glitters in Romania



Been a while since we've had a Sony 'Balls' style ad on TV.

Well now they're back and visually this is a beauty.

It was filmed in a magnificent disused casino in Romania.

Shame about the choice of soundtrack though.

It's a tad cliched if you ask me.

Love a good topical ad

Game on!



Another cracking TV spot for Lurpak from W+K London. Seriously what's not to love?

It's Super Trump!

This Trump poster turned up in my Facebook feed the other day.

I honestly thought it was a meme.

Turns out it's a real poster and it's in Times Square.

Please please please America don't elect this knucklehead President.

Motorola takes on Apple

My first mobile phone was a Motorola.

That was over 20 years ago.

Their popularity was eventually usurped by Ericsson then a few years later by Nokia.

Eventually they reclaimed the popularity crown with the clam shelled Razr.

And then along came the iPhone...

This is a very brave ad from Motorola. It ran full page in the New York Times.

Will it bring people back to their brand?

I doubt it.

But good on them for being cheeky enough to diss Apple and try.

Fast or faster?

Every once in a while I see and idea and thing now that's clever.

This is one of those times.

Sadly it's only a student concept.

Which make me wonder why on earth the kid that created it hasn't pitched it to FedEx?

MEATBALL GOLF



I always encourage people to get a bit of random in their work.

And their life.

But is there anything more random than meatball golf?

Certainly not this week.

Beautifully short. And very well art directed.

It's the work of the oddly named San Francisco agency MUH-TAY-ZIK | HOF-FER.
