Stihl is out of this world



In space no one can hear you scream. They probably can't hear you using a leaf blower either. Which is good as they're rather noisy. Bloody great product demo though! Creative by Altmann+Pacreau.

Tripods!



Obviously the people behind this are more than familiar with the early Pixar Anglepoise Lamp short film. Still pretty damn cute though!

Very well Finished



Let's be honest. A brief for a dishwashing powder really doesn't sound like a great creative opportunity.

So kudos to the always reliable W+K London for coming up with something unexpected and interesting for Finish.

Fabulous film technique too.

Strong dogs

Found this surfing the web the other day.

No idea if it's real or a fake.

But what I do know is I like it. A lot.

Just glad it's not my driveway!

Smart enough

Old school American obviously has its tongue firmly wedged in its cheek for this oh so subtle gag at the expense of the Apple Watch. I kinda like it. Although that could be because I'm a 'watch' guy.

Life explained in 27 secs



Short and to the point. This little film was based on a tweet by the film making Farrelly Brothers. Pretty good don't you think?

Jurassic Lego

To be honest I don't know who the target market for this ad is.

Little kids are too young to get the Jurassic reference.

And people old enough to get the reference are probably not playing with Lego.

But seriously who cares. This is a cracker of an ad.

Beirut on logos and more



Michael Bierut. Smart man. Interesting mind.

Peter Mead on clients

When we think of the great British agency AMV the first name that comes up is always David Abbott.

Now Peter Mead may not be a household(ish) name but he certainly built a great agency.

And his observation of the modern day client/agency relationship is telling.

Shot on iPhone 6

As a wannabe young copywriter I was told time and time again that you can't beat a good product demonstration in an ad.

Which may explain why I'm such a fan of the 'Shot on iPhone 6' posters that have been popping up around town.

To be honest there's nothing overly clever about the campaign. But for me that is what makes it so powerful.

Everytime someone sees an image on a poster they probably say to themselves "They shot that on an iPhone?"

Because I know I did.

There's a great gallery of these pics on the Apple website. Click here to take a look.
