Adland - all the adnews not fit to print.
Red Tettemer and Partners partnered with Pete Heacock to create some vines for their client, a "super-premium" booze brand called TuB Gin. Heacock apparently had some Vine shorts accepted to the Tribeca Film Festival. And if that doesn't signal the apocalypse I don't know what will.
Anywho, if you want to see all ten TuB Gin vines, follow TuB Gin here. Here's three of them.
The one featuring the ingredients is my favorite, because conceptually, it's the only one that actually says "super premium booze."
Look. I appreciate when women good at their jobs get the kudos they deserve, and I know there's a lot of people out there who should be getting more kudos and high-fives than they do. Congrats Anna Banks, at Organic, good on ya Sally Grimes at Hillshire, way to go Leeann Leahy at VIA, well done to the rest of you ladies as well.
Bicoastal post house NO6 and London and NY based Peepshow Post Productions are joining forces, uniting two complementary talent rosters behind the deep resources of the combined studios. This new partnership, which will retain the NO6 name, will be positioned to handle all aspects of postproduction – providing editorial, finishing, color correction, and more in and between LA, New York, London and, soon, Chicago.
From bobbleheads to beer koozies, baseball teams have always had incentives to get butts in seats. The Fort Wayne TinCaps, a minor league team based in Indiana, jis about to earn itself some media. On Social Media Night. players will wear jerseys featuring their fans' twitter handles. No doubt they'll be instagrammed by "iPhotographers," and put right back in cyberspace, too. Brilliant.
Lucky USA residents will have a chance to make a name for themselves as the most legendary traveler ever, courtesy of Heineken. It's called Dropped.
Simply jump through the hoops above and you might get picked up by Heineken and dropped in some other locale where you will have a branded content adventure. Judging by the previous Dropped story, starring Rikar, it's riveting stuff.
A handful of Scottish Irn-Bru fans have chuckled and passed this image on, it's Irn-Bru's cheeky response to the European campaign from Coke where common first names are placed on the labels instead of the brand name (Except the name Mohammed, despite it being a very common). Irn-Bru tweeted this a couple of days ago:
Los Angeles—Director Rick Knief has joined Accomplice Media for exclusive representation in commercials. A former award-winning creative director, Knief has directed campaigns for such brands as the Wall Street Journal, Century 21, IBM, Time-Warner and American Express, producing work that spans a range of genres from comedy to visual storytelling to real-people documentary. Last year, he earned critical and popular acclaim for a music video for indie singer/songwriter Joseph Arthur that was shot with a rig equipped with nine iPhones.
“Rick is a great talent,” says Accomplice Executive Produce Jeff Snyder. “His agency background gives him an understanding of the project from client and creative points of view, while his skills as a director enable him to execute in a wide range of genres…. emotional and visual storytelling, performance and humor as well as real people and documentary. He has an innate understanding of people and motivations which helps him to draw out authentic performances in every spot.”
During a debate called ‘Follow the Money: Can The Business of Ad-Funded Piracy Be Throttled?’ in London last night, Google’s UK policy manager stated that Pirate Site Blocking Just Leads To a Game of Whack-a-Mole, and Google doesn't believe in it.
“It’s not Google’s job to go around the web to declare whether sites are legal or illegal, but if Coca-Cola comes to us and says here’s a list of 500 dynamic sites and we don’t want you to place ads on those, that’s a slightly different thing. It’s almost a marketing thing for the brand,” he said.
You might not have heard of Standard Time, the L.A. based small agency headed up by Michael Sharp who does his name justice, but that would only be because they're too busy working to toot their own horn.
While you were pouring over various adnews, Standard Time nabbed a large national client in competition with agencies ten times their size. They were also working with major retailer CVS, Starbucks Doubleshot, Veggie Grill, Stila Cosmetics, Skullcandy Gamin, and they did work for DC Shoes, Williams Sonoma and Quiksilver. The work spans from perfected identity design to apps, digital sites and commercials airing on MTV, proving that each one of the people at Standard Time has many talents. They may only be nine people, but they're nine eclectically talented people.
Sure sure, we see ads that are very similar. We see ads that have the same idea. We see ads that have the same base idea, from companies that have the same name? Hold up, that last one is a rarity so lets look at Frontier vs Frontier, because hilarious. Too many similarities in one go here, people.
Last year, Frontier Airlines auditioned new animals for their planes tails. . Frogs and parrots and even a dung beetle wanted to join the Frontier Airlines family. He brought fresh dung! Give him a chance. The campaign allowed people to vote for their favorite Frontier animal on twitter.
