Hell Pizza's carbon copied ad campaign is just like New York Pizza's commercials

This is a funny badlander, that somehow escaped our attention when it first happened, this should have appeared under dupliclaims already two years go. We are slacking, our bad.

Grolsch UK interactive experience

Grolsch UK interactive experience

Somewhere out there is a policeman who is so cold he doesn't even have to speak to get a confession from the local criminals he interrogates. The man who never speaks hears everything, you see. And apparently for some reason, he also likes to buy Grolsch for people he doesn't know. Go figure.

UK Shop Beattie McGuinness Bungay put together this interactive experience, complete with case study to show how punters could watch the ad, and then send an SMS to Journt, for a chance to get a four pack of Grolsch-- that is, if he's heard of you. And if he has, he'll send you a voucher, along with a handy dandy pin on a map showing the closest place for you to get some beer.

The direct-from-client brief from Nike Amsterdam was to create a visually spectacular brand film for the launch of the newest edition of Nike’s CTR360 midfielder cleat, a boot designed specifically for ball control. Using prisms and reflective shards to depict the boot harnessing the chaos of a fragmented world, the video shows the cleat as it re-inscribes its environment with control.

 

Cyberbullying hurts just as bad as that face-bruises Domestic Violence PSA?

Do you remember the Domestic Violence PSA - Coalition Against Battered Women: "It rarely stops" from Y&R in 2010? Yeah it was a bit like that Macy Grey video from the 90s, where the bruises appeared and vanished from her face, but here our abused heroine wasn't singing about the past. She was busy covering each mark, cut and brusies with makeup, while new ones kept appearing, which made the point of the ad : "It rarely stops".
