This was a link sent to Sam Deutsch as part of a mailout this week. A short film showing technicians discovering a match between his DNA and the VDT of Audi. Vorsprung Durch Technik. In addition, people on the initial list were sent a personalised DM piece, but only if they clicked the link and saw the movie. So the DM was only mailed out to individuals receptive to an Audi message. The Perfect Match.

A new commercial for BuddyLee jeans stars a 90-foot babe walking down the street to the tunes of Pretty Woman, view it here.
The star , named Natalia, has her own blog which like many blogs, starts each post with either I, I'm, My or It. Added bonus, you can call the number she writes on the wall in the commercial, 212-468-2817 and hear what the giant gal sounds like. But no, that's not her accent according to this post: I ended up recording the world's silliest message on my answering machine. I've been working with an acting coach, so I had the idea to do the message with a foreign accent. I'll admit it: my accents could use some work. Buddy thought I sounded Russian, my mom thought I sounded French and my agent thought she had the wrong number!
Remember that fab end of the world animation that launched a thousand "double-u-tee-eff" snickers? This one?
Nike, always on the edge, managed to track down the 18-year old kid Jason with the hilarious accent and goofy style, and the result Autumn in New York even has nasty squirrels in it. Click it baybeh.
Welcome to Snerko™, the online home of t-shirt designer Dan Rollman. Hailed as “a unique voice in the homemade t-shirt field”, Dan’s shirts have been worn by such icons as Beck, The White Stripes and Beyonce.. reads the intro on Snerko.com.
By day Dan works at Goodby, by night he inks shirts with a felt-tip marker and creates a myth about his famous artist alter ego who exploits the worlds love for celebrities and cheesy t-shirt slogans.
Created by Crispin Porter + Bogusky, the Interventions parody the self-help movement's affirmations approach by providing users with a list of humorous alternatives to tailor - including 'Stop Wearing Underwear All The Time', 'Stop Chasing Awards' and the ever popular 'Stop Spreading Companywide Emails'.
It's political ad season again and the truthbenders are working overtime. If we are to believe the movies, everyone was either on drugs or in Vietnam in the sixties - or both. Perhaps that explains George Elliotts lack of recall, as the Smoking gun points out he recommended Kerry for a Bronze Star in 1969 and called Kerry "highly courageous in the face of enemy fire" back then. The tune is quite different now that he's appearing in ads for Bush attacking Kerry, with the ironic sounding statement "John Kerry has not been honest about what happened in Vietnam". Who's not being honest? ( mercury news ).
To keep track of the Bush-connections behind the anti-Kerry ads, The New York Times has provided us readers with this nice graph.
The advertising week NYC is coming up soon, and Charlie the tuna is out campaigning for Your vote. He's begging, really.
In mass-email that seems to spread around Del Monte foods mainly, Charlie begs for votes so that he can be the favorite brand icon ever, and have his likeness on posters and on the streets of Manhattan. Read more to see the mail.
I don't know how many people have noticed but this site does not use www in front of the domain. We're a bonafida class B non-www site and have been for the past three or four years. If you link to us and use the dang www's, our redirect will get rid of them anyway. In fact, all domains on this server redirect to non-www domain names.
no-www.org is a site where you can test yours and others www-class and explains in short why the www is - and has been for years - redundant. Isn't it a blessing to be able to say "u-arr-ell-dot-com" these days rather than "double-ya double-ya double-ya (phew) u-arr-ell-dot-com" to someone? You save on typing and space on businesscards, it's all good. :)
The Register has found a very strange Japanese ad for Open Source software, actress Norika Fujiwara promotes StarSuite - Sun Microsystems' Japanese Office knock off. In one ad, Norika is so stunned by the $18 StarSuite price tag she falls over and gives birth to a foal - the idea is "anything can happen".
"We convey a concept of our $18 strategy as surprising and moving in the ad," said Nori Matsuda, the president and CEO of SourceNext. "The ad basically says, 'Anything can happen.'"

Hat tip to Marla on adlist.
Beep-box.com is the result of a collaboration between 4 worldclass beatboxers and Motorola.
Motorola needed a way to show Push 2 Talk technology in action, so they called on the incredible skills of Faith SFX, Oracle, Koobs and Lionhart. The four beatboxers, representing for Paris, London, New York and Berlin, conference beatbox using Motorola's new V 600 P, a phone that allows the user to have walkie-talkie style conversations with their friends across the globe. Neat-o! Shame abut the image quality of the video however.
