Mister Imagine's Toy Store allows imaginations to run wild by selling only plain cardboard boxes.

Welcome to Mister Imagine's Toy Store, where you'll find a giant castle, a music area, birdhouses, weather clouds, hot air balloons, and much more – all made out of cardboard. Oh, and that cardboard, those plain boxes - all for sale of course. The staff hosts workshops on how to create masterpieces out of ordinary cardboard. There's an augmented reality station in the store, where kids can hold up their bland boxes to the computer screen, and it will turn that box into a toy in the kids hands just to jump-start their imaginations. It's a car! It's a fort! It's a plane! It's Schrödinger's cat! Because we all remember how babies played with the box the expensive toy we bought came in, instead of with the toy.

"Vote like an adult, then whine like a baby" - PSA wants you to vote

Real complainers VOTE is the basic idea of the PSA from Third Street. The fantastic looking downladable posters forgoes the "you can't complain if you don't vote" truth, and explores the inverse, that if you do vote, then boy-oh-boy can you ever complain. In lovely looking layout and with cuss-words to boot.

Jameson Irish Whiskey - Pub Paintings - (2012)

Here's quite the clever bar ad creep that just nabbed a Bronze at the one show which means that yes, you will very likely see this in Cannes this year. TBWA\Chiat\Day New York have tried before, and not quite reached Cannes quality limits but like a good whisky this campaign is maturing, and personally I think that "Pub paintings" has a chance at some lion-action.

Spot McSorley's old Ale house among the bars, the paintings fit right in there.

NYT battle - Real Life game - NYT.fi

NYT.fi magazines motto is "right here, right now" and they wanted more eyballs on their website. Helsingin Sanomat responded by coming up with a battle concept, three teams lead by celebs had to complete tasks across the city of Helsinki in one day, and points given in the shape of like & shares on facebook were added to their score. Make a bus driver laugh. Breakdance in the central station. Freestyle rap to someone over 50. Collect five kisses from strangers. As the teams sped through their tasks, the clips generated brought the traffic to NYT.fi.
