The Condescending Corporate Brand Page on facebook

The Condescending Corporate Brand Page is the best thing to happen to facebook since.. yeah, I'll just leave that there, shall I? Encapsulating exactly how bland, boring and annoying a corporate brand page usually is, it mocks everyone. Adland likes it, or rather Adland liked this particular picture because it is anything but bland. I couldn't get so meta that one page liked another, that shit makes me dizzy.

Fifty shades of Grey Advertising - a smutty tumblr for bored writers

Clearly, people don't have enough to do at the agencies around the world in July, an assumption I base on all the writing that is submitted to the Fifty Shades Of Grey Advertising website. Yep, a tumblr dedicated to making a day at Grey (or any agency) sound like bad smut. "I discovered I was a submissive when I joined my first ad agency." admits the sites creator, and it seems they have found friends.

Pantone Merkel - a rainbow Spectacle of Tragedy

Earlier we retweeted the Pantone Merkel which is all kinds of funny, and now we found via Nextnature that these images of our rainbow-leader were collected by Noortje van Eekelen as part of her Spectacle of Tragedy project. The real tragedy is in the cut of that suit-jacket.
"Welcome to the Visual Database of the European Show and its Leading Actors" reads the tumblr Noortje has set up and there's even a full page of Berlusconi’s favorite girls. Trust me to find the titty.

Dear Nicholas who works in social media: do not do that thing with the engagement ring

No matter how I interpret "cat box" it's not a good place for an engagement ring. Thank you @AnnaHolmes for making us giggle so hard we got coffee up our nose with this tweet:

Dear Blank, Please blank = Funny.

Todays lovely internet-detour is dear blank please blank. "Smart you" probably meant to write abstain not sustain on the Mexican salsa advice... Or "smart you" isn't all that smart to begin with, I mean "dumb you" hasn't learned that salsa is hot yet.... But there's more on the site, and some are quite funny. Now, bored adfolks, spend some minutes snarking a dear blank please blank and submit them here so we can all laugh at our miserable lives together.

The Zombie apocalypse has already written one.

Fiat Photobomb Prank

Everybody's talking about Fiat's OMG THEY DIDN'T photobomb. They parked in front of the Volkswagen offices, and waited till the Google Street View peeps rode by. And then KAPOW. Take that, Volkswagen. There's a Fiat 500 in front of your office on Google street view. For like a year!
In yo face! This is not a Beetle!

Apple store sign is mocked by Android store next door - "Apple sucks" ..Android

This store in China, right next to an Apple store wants to spell out that Apple sucks and does so rather graphically using the logos from each business.

While we're here giggling in the gutter, you might also fancy bad brand names that won't export well, or one of those lovely phallic logos.... Perhaps while snacking on some poo tofu. God how I love international work.

Friday fun - the advertising tumblr gif-jokes and ad cartoons

It's time to laugh our heads off at injokes nobody outside of our sad business understands. This advertising life is a gif-snark tumblr where each hilarious anim shows a classic emotion-reaction in advertising. Or: this is what happens when someone comes up behind me when my headphones are on.

Those who know me, know how true this is

Go art Director! go!

Words of encouragement from copywriters are the lines we never hear (and often for day-m good reason) like:

True, I mean realistically who reads body copy these days?

You carry your lack of sleep with unmatched grace

- ha! Yeah right!
