Gonjasufi - The Blame - Desert and deserted Los Angeles

Director Neil Krug creates a desert in Downtown Los Angeles for Gonjasufi

The video for “The Blame”, a soothing yet melancholy track, features Gonjasufi wandering in solitude amidst a post-apocalyptic Los Angeles. In conceptualizing the video, Krug recognized the song’s dark undertones and chose to enhance it with desolate imagery to bring it to life.

Having always had a fascination with the 1970s films The Omega Man and Soylent Green, Krug went back to these films for reference to prior to filming and selected quintessential Los Angeles locations that would be easily recognizable. A major challenge in the production of the video was creating the illusion of a deserted city within a congested urban metropolis.

Fotolia - The Bold type only leading european stock campaign

I love the sarcasm here. I love that the long-running sentences manages to pack in both American and European stereotypes with tongue firmly planted in cheek, while name-dropping drool-worthy designer items carefully painting a picture in your mind that corresponds to what's described. I love that the response to a photo-agency brief is a campaign without photos.

Kirin Mini Beer - BeerBro-quet - A Valentine's bouqet of beer.

Marcus from Y&R emailed me the perfect Valentine's bouquet, one filled with Kirin Mini Beer - the only thing ruining this for me is that he only sent me pictures. What the hell Marcus, I would love a beer-boquet, why torture me like this? That's it, we are so through, Mistah. If you need me, I'll be roaming romantic restaurants sticking false engament rings in all the ladies drinks tonight. Just sharing the love, sharing the love.

Brainiacs From Mars will turn your home into a billboard (just like Adzookie)

Remember Adzookie who turns your home into a billboard, and pays your mortgage for you? No? Here's a funny new Badlander of sorts, Brainiacs from Mars have exactly the same new media idea. They'll paint your house like a garish ad, and pay your mortgage for you. And just like the Adzookie example, Braniacs has "follow us on twitter" and useless facebook buttons on their example home. Is there a difference between the companies? Oh yes, one thing: the name. The CEO is still Romeo Mendoza, and the idea is the one he launched last year under the name of Adzookie. Wonder what prompted the name change.

Unfortunately, the consequences of all this mind-blowing intercourse can often lead to sex injuries such as whiplash, pulled muscles, rug burn, and even a dislocated
