This campaign from Ogilvy & Mather Asia Pacific seeks to raise awareness about the so called "Honour" killings that are happening all over the world and direct people to the Stop Honour Killings site. Personally I think "Honour" killings is the wrong word, it implies there's some sort of honour in hacking your own family to death, it needs a bit of re-branding, how about "pathetic barbaric neanderthal killings done by small minded and small dicked men"*?

Humanitarian Lion - press SPEC

Remember that humanitarian lion idea that showed up on youtube in May? Yeah, it had slipped my mind too, anyway the guys behind it tried making some ads for it.



When they sent me the first one, which was basically a badge pointing to the youtube film again, I responded "Oh you know that'll you'll have to do better than that. I'll be happy to publish it when you do." so here's their second shot at an ad advertising the Humanitarian Lion. They explain: "we created this ad to communicate people about our website. Our idea is to collect the most signatures and companies support we can, to convince Cannes Festival. Thank you"

Now Be Kanye - Sometimes when I'm at work sweating over some impossible deadline, I would daydream of being a rapper. My life would be filled with yachts, gold chains and girls wearing booty shorts. Yeah!

Now Absolut has something to help my dream come true. I found this small ad hidden in the personals section of the latest New York Magazine. Side-effects include inflated ego and temper tantrums.
