Lobsters corner sunblock market. Prawns protest!
adgrunt Errol does some ad sniping in Singapore and brings this fresh Badland catch. Click continue to see the twin ideas. Ooops.
Advertising agencies are hothouses for creativity, but sometimes their
ideas aren't as farm fresh as they should be.
adgrunts, click continue to see what's growing in the garden of
Badland (DirecTV vs. Fruit Harvest).
It's been a while since we've seen this kind of Badlander*.
The original is a web movie - an animation made by some talented freelancers who wouldn't mind some work thrown their way.. The non-original is made by Nike... Have a look to see what you think about this.
You wouldn't think computer chips and denim would have anything in common, but these two spots tell a different story.
Yeah, the spots look different, but they sure sound alike!
Adgrunts, click continue and give these ads a listen.
Back in April, The Wall Street Journal advertised its new redesign by running a funny trade campaign. To announce a new, lean pork, Smithfield Ham is running a funny ad of their own. Too bad it's the same funny as the Wall Street Journal!

Here's a dupliclaim I never thought would happen, but I have seen many many ghosts lately.
First spook encounter was in March and later in April when an interview with Jeff Goodby - done by a ghost - was sent out planet wide. This was the mere beginning of Ghost plan of raising unpublished ads up on the pedestal they deserve.
These ghosts later invaded Cannes during the adfest to scream a different kind of booh than usually heard in those parts.
here comes the second ghost..
First up, the grand prix of Cannes 2002, second, Missing Links campaign for the same shop in 1999. Interestingly they both hung posters on dogleash holders and other places for "piercing" a poster = same unusual media idea too!
Remember the Diet Coke commercial where cheeky female office workers organized "Diet Coke breaks" to drool over a construction worker named Lucky?
Well, they're back again (at least the creative concept is) and they now have eyes for an Imagistics photocopier repairman!
How many buff construction workers you know drink diet soda? Maybe the repairman should fix the ladies' Gay-dar!
This month the ict have brung down it`s axe on many ads.
This ad,which featured a very short life (Literally,it lasted thirty
seconds) received 160 complaint`s resulting in it being banned from TV.Although,as with French connection,this don`t stop them keeping it on their website at https://www.playmore.com
i can see why this one was banned,as i didn`t really like it.
Badland hypothesis 1: It's bad enough when you're forced to use stock footage. It's worse when the money guys are too cheap to buy exclusive rights to the scenes.
Badland hypothesis 2: An agency with two clients. Brainstorm! We'll use the same location and crew for two different clients, air both at the same time and bill each one the full charges. Ka-ching! No one will ever find out!
Badland hypothesis 3: A 1-in-a-bajillion freaky fluke. At least one agency had the aesthetic good taste to get rid of that annoying power line.
