Photographer parodies a Justin Bieber video with the song "Pay me" about infringement

Tokyo-based editorial photographer Irwin Wong channels Justin Beiber in this music video where he croons "pay me pay me pay ooooh, pay me" to all those who won't cease and desist.

This song goes out to all my photographer homies who have had their copyright infringed!

On Irwin's own blog he launched this song as "the long awaited single from washed-up pop artist Irwin W. is out. Irwin W. - who is not me although he incidentally looks and sounds exactly like me, is actually the Scottish-Japanese former-frontman for the 80′s photography-based rock band High ISO." Ha!

DDB UK Remember a Charity and legendary stuntman Rocky Taylor break world record

The Remember A Charity Week aims to encourage more people to, after they have looked after friends and family, leave a gift to charity in their will. DDB UK found the perfect spokesperson, legendary Bond movie stuntman Rocky Taylor who is now 62. Since his skillset is "stunts" rather than speaking they had him break stunt record. The record for the largest breakaway glass structure smashed by a car was last broken on the set of the 2002 film Die Another Day, and it was smashed again the day before yesterday by Rocky. He added the extra twist (pun!) of slamming a car into it while it was spinning.

What do girls look at? Man dresses up with hidden cameras to find out.

Anthony is a well groomed, handsomely fit and very curious man who wants to know what do women look at when they first meet him. So, he dressed up with four hidden cameras placed on his body to conduct this very important market research/experiment. He is armed (hehe, pun) with a crotch cam, a bicep cam, a butt cam, and a glasses cam. The cameras record his "I'm a lost tourist" interactions with women around New York City, and unsurprisingly his biceps, butt and crotch is being checked out at each interaction. By the end of the experiment two lovely young ladies decide to walk with him half a mile to his destination. Wonder what perfume he was wearing.

The Big AdGig 2011 - your vote can kill a team.

"The most historic advertising decision since Pantone 128 vs. Pantone 129." Yes, The Big Adgig is on again, and it's up to you to vote for the video you think are good - chiseling the 15 video shortlist down to eight. Remember kids, every time you vote "a junior gets its wings". This explains all the fly-swatters seen in creative departments.

This is Sara Nitz' submission.

Patagonia says "Don't buy our clothes new" partners with eBay to sell used clothing

Outdoor gear clothing company Patagonia and online auction house eBay have announced a new partnership, the Common Threads Initiative. If you join them on eBay, you can buy, sell, repair and re-use old durable and much loved Patagonia gear. Yes, that's right a clothing brand is asking you not to buy their new clothes. Makes complete sense for this outdoor clothing brand to encourage less throw-away consumption which we all know isn't good for mother earth, provider of the great outdoors where Patagonia is worn. Still, an interesting move. Check out this search where you can find lots of used Patagonia gear.
