New Facebook "No, Thanks" pop up cleverly disguised as privacy management

Facebook is about to start intermittently nagging you, but it's not like they haven't done this before.

Facebook has always cared about your privacy. Seriously. I'm as critical of them as the next guy, but they know as well as anyone else, one step too far, and Facebook can, and would, go the way of MySpace. These are the things insomnia is made of, well, that and clowns.

Take the empty bucket challenge

With more than 2.4 million videos uploaded, the ice bucket challenge has been a global success. While the cause is noble, not everyone is thrilled about the water waste. Especially in Brazil where water can be a precious resource that not everyone has access to.

"Rape Nail Polish", great viral to discuss rape - but non-existent product.

You've heard about Undercovercolors (website not available) this week. It started with a great big bang as the image (above) of the nailpolish changing spread, and a link to a UC donations page asking for funds spread with it. Not sure why they'd need more funding as they've won an $11,000 prize and a $100,000 investment already, according to reports.

Forget the walking fridge, Fuji has made the walking printer.

Fuji has taken a note from the walk-in fridge commercial and Yo! Sushi's robot-bartender and made a walking printer. The robotic printer can walk around the office and deliver the print-outs to those who have ordered the job done. The printer has been designed for use in public spaces, with the idea that it'll keep documents secure when the printer comes to you.

Colossal Spark is a crowdsourcing Colossal Joke

Update - we've edited this article Friday August 29, see footnote.

Colossal Spark is a brand new crowdsourcing website for advertisers, and creatives alike. Now I know what you're thinking: Great, another exploitive site a la Victors and Spoils, where the partners make a boat load of money while enlisting thousands upon thousands of minions to work for free or next to free. I'll bet they're just waiting patiently to be bought out by a holding company, there by making even MORE money.

R.I.P. Robin Williams, the creative's creative

I didn't know Robin Williams, but his work was pretty special for me personally. Good Morning Vietnam and Dead Poets Society were there at the very beginning of my understanding of war and life and death, and for that, I'm truly grateful. He didn't create those things himself, nobody does, but the soul of the story was in him, and his ability to take the madness of the mind and bring it alive through words was unique and unparalleled. Anyone who worked with him is singing his praises right now, and there's no more fitting tribute to the man than the body of work he left behind.

Amy Nicholson Joins Supply & Demand

Memorable work includes Snapple at Kirshenbaum Bond and Partners where Nicholson created the classic “Snapple Lady" campaign that saw Wendy Kaufman read out letters from consumers in her thick, Long Island accent.

Yes Sir and Man Made announce social popup barber shop.

Pop-up stores are so old hat by now they're hardly worth a mention, but at least this one serves an actual purpose. This coming September, British Men's online groomer shop Yes Sir! and London brick-and-mortar grooming shop Man Made are making a pop-up shop where your shave and a haircut cost you nothing more than a tweet with a hashtag or instagram photo. Nice way to get the punters to try out both stylist and product alike.

Harnessing CATS to save the TIGER, times three.

A while back, Swedish Creative (Art) Director Kenneth Pilo of Pilo Bold Me showed off his case study of the long-running catfood campaign to save the tigers he helped create in Sweden. The brand Lantmännen Doggy & Tetra Pak donated a chunk of the income from you buying their cat food to help save the tigers via the WWF. But better still, cats could become a tigers sponsor, adopting a tiger and promising to donate to them every month.
