Taxi Canada sells their Mini on Ebay after losing account.

"Thanks Mini, it's been one hell of a ride" says the poster that waves the Taxi Mini account goodbye after ten years of fruitful co-operation. Anomaly has won the Mini account and are now the AOR for all things Mini Cooper.

If you want the Cooper that Taxi Canada once owned, it's for sale on Ebay and why not, it's a sweet ride and all proceeds will go to Covenant House.

Strategy online has more on the account move.

Collateral Damage Part Four: Britta Phillips.

It's funny to think that around the same time the iPod was introduced, forever changing music as we know it, advertising had what was arguably its greatest moment in pairing music to spot. Namely, VW's Cabrio spot, which launched a long dormant (and long buried) singer named Nick Drake into the spotlight once again.

Adidas is all in, as long as the idea stays the same.

Back in 1999, there was - according to all rumors - quite the dramatic pitch for the überhot account of Adidas. W+K Amsterdam was involved, and from the ashes of that pitch was born a brand new agency: 180. Would they show off good once they showed some work? Yes, they would. This Adidas ad blew most people away back then, and was ripped off a few times (some Dutch bank copy was in an early Badlander here). I personally applauded it for being my go-to whenever I needed to show a client that YES you do not to speak the VO when it's written on the screen already, gosh darnit.

Lip-stick service to a cause - women athletes are hurting for sponsors.

Buzzfeed has a post about how Sarah Robles, the US Olympic hopeful and the strongest woman in America lives in poverty. They paint a picture of a dedicated, wholesome, healthy and truly hard-working gal, who has begun mentoring athletes younger than her too. In short, she's exactly the kind of person any brand would want as a role model - so why aren't brands sponsoring her? they ponder.

Urinal-cake ads speak out against drunk driving

Here's a great example of taxpayer money going straight down the drain, quite literally (he he). Michigan officials are fighting drunk driving by placing talking urinal cakes in bars in Wayne, Bay, Ottawa and Delta counties.

Four hundred of the cakes will be distributed to 200 eateries prior to July Fourth, said Anne Readette, spokeswoman for the Office of Highway Safety Planning, a division of the Michigan State Police.
"We're doing this to draw attention to Fourth of July drunk driving enforcement," Readette said.
