The wrong way to gain exposure in advertising

It's tough these days, what with all the competition on the internet, to really get your work noticed.

While there's always someone out there trying to convince you to work for free in order to gain exposure, thankfully not everyone falls for that con.

Take the sci-fi artist Travis Wright who found himself on the receiving end of this pitch, by an ACD at Grey NY named Roy Torres.

Who's the better Butter Mayor?

Seattle's having a mayor race coming up, between challenger Senator Ed Murray, and incumbent Mike McGinn.
Apparently no one is taking it too seriously, because dairy company Darigold has carved both candidates' likeness into butter, for the people to decide who is the better butter mayor. This little scheme was cooked up with the help of Wexley School For Girls.

Bittorrent Billboard ads spoofed by pro-copyright group #rightthemusic

160 girls project.

Today is International Day of the Girl. To honor this, BBDO Toronto created 160 girls Project to honor 160 Kenyan girls, victims of rape) who fought back against society and the courts in Kenya to get justice. Now the Kenyan police have been ordered to investigate crimes of rape against girls or face imprisonment. Considering a child is raped in Kenya every 30 minutes, this judgment (which was handed down back in May ) is nothing short of a landmark.

Buick vs Volvo - a car so comfortable it's like an extra room x 2

Nothing new under the sun, you know. Here's two ads, one from the 1960s showing that the Buick has such comfortable lounge seats you might want to lounge in it, and one from more recent years showing the same idea for Volvo.

It's funny when that happens, isn't it?

New York audio house Bar1 celebrates National Protect Your Hearing Month

To celebrate National Protect Your Hearing Month, Bar1 sent out this promo in the form of a simple hearing test. If you can hear the 3 frequencies, congratulations! You can still hear! (Apparently my cat can hear them too, judging by how quickly she dashed out of the room.)

I love creepy Norman Rockwell-esque image as well as the real point at the bottom of the ad: the fact that Bar1 protects our hearing and saves "the world from crappy audio since 2006."
