Lee Clow's Beard , or rather Jason Fox as he "outed" himself in a rather frank post way back in May '12, is in the adnews again with his bright D&AD yellow book.

Finnish Radio station launches via animated GIFs

Fun idea from our Finnish Friends 358 Helsinki. Loop.fi is a station aimed at the young social media loving music lovers. They called the station Loop, was a sarcastic take on the idea that popular radio plays the same thing over and over again.

The website's gallery has 70 GIF's in its collection. A few feature well known Finnish performers.
But the really cool part is you can synch them to the beat of the music.

Home Depot spends all day apologizing for chimp-tweet

Home Depot on twitter is spending most of their work day apologizing for sending out the tweet above, where the question is: "Which drummer is not like the others?" and not "what were they thinking?". The three drummers are two black men, and one person wearing a chimp halloween mask. Not a monkey mask, chimps are apes. It took around ten seconds before twitter erupted in a collective all caps fest, and the office pool on how fast that social media person will get fired is already at twohundred dollars.

Two complaints. Two. That's how many complaints "Advertising ombudsman" Elisabeth Trotzig has received about this ad so far. The Fathers Day ad for the high end exclusive mall Sturegallerian in the center of Stockholm used a classic trick to shake up the category of fathers day ads.
