Panorama Hair Transit Ad

A mirrored ceiling ad for rapid transit trains to give follicly challenged commuters a panoramic view of their comb overs. The average Canadian takes 26 minutes to commute to work so that's plenty of time to look overhead and consider a receding hairline.

Benetton - Unhate - Kissing presidents, prime ministers and chancellors - (2011)

'What does 'unhate' mean? ' Un-hate. Stop hating, if you were hating. Unhate is a message that invites us to consider that hate and love are not as far away from each other as we think. Actually, the two opposing sentiments are often in a delicate and unstable balance. Our campaign promotes a shift in the balance.'
- Alessandro Benetton, Executive Vice President

See also the Unhate foundation while you scratch your head and wonder how this sells sweaters.

By the way, back in 2003 this street art showed Saddam and Bush kissing so I'll add unoriginal to that.

VISA - Crayfish Bus (attack) - Wellington On a Plate: Welly On a Plate

RUN FOR YOUR LIVES! Giant crayfish are clawing out of the earth from mile-deep catacombs and attacking our cities! This is revenge for that time when I poured wormwood-heavy absinth in the boiling water at our crayfish party isn't it? I thought the hallucinations would be cool not terrifying! Hold me, I'm scared!

Be Super Ordinary

By taking the Fire Safety Audit on Facebook people are protecting their family and community, as well as helping the firefighters do their job. They deserved to be honoured. So all of them will have their face projected on a 3 metre high bronze statue with a digital face in the Sydney CBD.

New Zealand police attract new recruits with street art ad campaign

M&C Saatchi and Ikon Communications took to the streets, or rather street art, to spread the word and recruit more police officers in New Zealand. They commissioned NZ artist Otis Frizzell to create the street art installations, and each police portrait tells of a real experience the police officers have had - all in a days work.

Madeleine Roberts and Julie Vahry (first image) for example, found a burglar and as Julia was chasing him through the street, only able to see him when the flashes of lightning shone, Madie came from around the corner and greeted him with open arms. The perfect pincher moment. Gotcha!

Fancy drowning in a Newcastle Brown Ale? Trapped in a schooner optical illusion

Fancy drowning yourself (if not your sorrows) in a Newcastle Brown Ale? If you're anywhere near the Del Mar Race Track in California, there's an 8 feet high schooner placed at the entrance of the track for fans to drown themselves in. It's a neat optical illusion, where if you stand in the right place to take a picture, it looks like you're in the glass. If you send that picture to Newcastes facebook page, you may win a prize.

13th Street - Decapitated heads as bowling balls / Bowlingheads

Jung von Matt are creeping us out with this lovely gory bowling ball set designed by spraygun artist Oliver Paass. The balls looks like decapitated heads in various states of decay, with the holes strategically placed where there's a nose, open mouths or a missing eye. Ugh! :) The decapitated head balls were placed in several German bowling alleys instead of the standard balls, and each set was finished off with a black ball advertising German horror TV channel No.1 : 13th street. Nice. Check out the balls in action.
