Adland - all the adnews not fit to print.
Shots.net is closing down? Say it aint so!Where will we go for our daily fix of cutting edge commercials? Don't tell me we have to buy the magazine and reel/DVD? Shots.net just sent out an email to all their subscribers stating that:
"It is with great regret that I have to tell you that due to circumstances
beyond our control the shots.net site is likely to come off line in April.
shots VHS, DVD and magazine are unaffected by these developments........" continued.....
the email continues:
Madonna and new hubby Guy Ritchie are shooting another film in a car. Unlike her banned pop-promo, this is a paid advert for BMW and less likely to be banned, as she won't be mowing down any pedestrians. See article in Australian MSN.
Finally - after pulling a few duds out of my hat I found a winner who promptly responded to the winning email - The DailyLama will soon receive his signed copy of Cutting edge advertising.
Thanks again to Jim Aitchison for sending us a copy. Anyone got any suggestion on which book I shall try and get next?
I was bored this weekend so I decided it was time to spring clean a little. Now, there is a new skin for Adland - and since maintaining the code in several skins was a bit of a headache - it is also the only skin. Previous users who get funny looking MYSQL jibberish at the top of the page - go straight to USER.PHP and choose "select theme" - after selecting the only theme, you should be fine. Hopefully you wont get funny looking mysql gibberish at the top of the page tho, as I changed ID on the cookies. ;) More new stuff! (read more)
The onion stereotypes about us. We recognise some collegues who forget it's only advertising after all.

In a sensational, unprecedented development, India's premier advertising agency, Lowe Lintas, ranked number two in India, has decided to withdraw its entries from the Abby awards competition. Abby awards is considered India's most prestigious ad award show organised by the Ad Club of Bombay. This, shockingly, comes just days ahead of the three-day extravaganza scheduled for the end of this month.
Pardon me, but I feel an adrant coming on.
After throwing away the mind-numbing device in my house - otherwise referred to as a Television - I quickly grew addicted to other visual stimuli, movies on DVD. There seems to be no DVD out there without a "making of" section, showing "behind the scenes" of each film. Most of them have countless games interviews and a quick link to the movies web site as well.
Was that Alex Keshishian we saw cuddling in the corner of a London hangout with Tiger Savage? Sure the music was loud, but to whisper in someones ear, one does not need to use arms hands and be quite that close.....
We weren't going to say anything, as we actually Like Mark Wnek, unlike the rest of Londons ad community, apparently including wife Tiger. Miauw!
Do you know whose TV ad premiered last night in America, featuring personal appearances by Barry White, George Clinton, Liz Phair, Steve Harwell of Smashmouth, De La Soul, Lil' Kim, Ziggy Marley, Chuck Berry, Dwight Yoakam, Exene Cervenka and Deep Dish?
HINT: It sure as hell wasn't Napster.

Using star power to such real, human effect is suprising and dare I say... endearing?
