April fools everyone.

Finally it's April 1 here in Denmark, last night I was had by the "hacked" waferbaby front page before I realized that yes... It's April 1.

This morning I snickered loudly at the well executed BoringBoring, where the suicide girl ads really look like suicidal teenage girls and the topic of each post could knock the edge off a packet of NoDoz. " Watch 10 years of PBS pledge drives, without the interesting programs" and " Watch Paint Dry"... oy...that's boring.

We're bound to see more as April 1 begins across the globe. Have a good one.

Tampax gets interactive

So going through the latest issue of InStyle, I came across this ad for Tampax. I had to laugh. One has to wonder if they really think anyone would cut out the clothes and dress up their tampon.

(much more inside)

Not a very good logo

You never get a second chance to make a first impression, so your logo better be good, and not misunderstood!

Our love is sponsored by Monsanto

Reverend Billy had a completly different comment to all the hubub about bzzzketeers on the bzzagents blog. It read as follows:

Lover #1: Oh baby baby I love you so much.
Lover #2: I love you too… brought to you by Monsanto.
Lover #1: What’s that?
Lover #2: I love you brought to you by Monsanto.
Love #1: But, what does that mean?
Lover #2: I love you brought to you by Monsanto.
Lover #1: Oh God no, what?…
Lover #2: Honey, I do love you, but now my love is sponsored by Monsanto.
Love #1: But why? I’m not into three-somes.

Peter Gibbons, we've found your iPaQ

Claymore spotted this lovely iPaQ at expansys.com, which seems to belong to Peter Gibbons.

Quoted from the movie Office Space
Dom: Hello, Peter. What's happening? We need to talk about your TPS reports.
Peter Gibbons: Yeah. The coversheet. I know, I know. Uh, Bill talked to me about it.
Dom: Yeah. Uh, did you get that memo?
Peter Gibbons: Yeah. I got the memo. And I understand the policy. The problem is, I just forgot this one time. And I've already taken care of it so it's not even a problem anymore.

Anti pop-up ad T-shirt xmas gift.

Brandsuicide, the people who hate intrusive pop-ups and layover ads rabidly have created a T-shirt for all of us who agree. If you want to be really evil for xmas, buy this for a friend who is stuck at a job designing pop-ups - that is what I'm going to do. The reason santa is so jolly is because he knows where all the bad girls like me live.

Saw this on a Russian site and thought it is pretty funny. Picture below is a poster ad in the Moscow metro, advertising Microsoft and it's new "Now I Know" campaign they are running there.
