Ikea Product Recall - Allen Key

Today in the Sunday Times and several other UK Newspapers are running a recall ad from Ikea. The Allen Key is a small iconic IKEA product made from highly-recyclable material useful for re-adjusting Ikea furniture long after it's been assembled. Sadly, Ikea did not notice that they have handed out left-handed Allen Key's to all customers, including right handed ones, all of 2012 thus far. They'll be happy to exchange the Allen Key for you if you go to your nearest Ikea store with your "wrong" key.

Richard Branson launches Virgin Volcanic.

Richard Branson launches journeys to the centre of the Earth through Virgin Volcanic. Academy Award winning actor Tom Hanks to join first expedition.

Only 500 people have been to space, only three people have been to the bottom of the ocean, but no one has ever attempted to journey to the core of an active volcano. Until now.

Using patented carbon-carbon materials pioneered for deep space exploration, Virgin is proud to announce a revolutionary new vehicle, VVS1, which will be capable of plunging three people into the molten lava core of an active volcano.

Ad agency rhyming slang

I didn't take too long for a Mad Man to find a use for Pinterest that's worth a Paul Calf-er, some Snoop Dogg and a bit of Ringo Starr. It's the Agency Rhyming Slang Board where every word is a celebrity pinned by @EamonDownes . Okay, fine, not every word, Femoral Vein isn't a name, and Baked Potato needs to be pronounced Baked Patatahh to even rhyme with Facebook Data, but just roll with it will you, it's funny. Gotta dash now, got a Ronan Keating.

Shit advertising students say (stick a fork in this, we're done)

Oh noes, there's yet another shit  says out there, and somehow apropos that it's the ad students latching on to the meme last. I had to post this anyway, for two reasons. 1: the use of comic sans in the end title, ha ha you sarcastic kids, and 2: the fact that they're still saying what we used to say when we were ad students.
Well, apart from the "I don't know coding so I have to be with someone who does" line. We used to say "I can't spell, so I have to be with someone who can". Who am I kidding, we never said that.

The agency letter joking was a bit too far kids. That joke is so old KFC used to be called "ye olde Kentucky Fricasseed Chicken" when it was first told.

With all the other "Shit X Says" or "Shit Nobody Says", it was only a matter of time before someone did a Shit Nobody Says About Advertising. And, yes, of course, complete with your favorite "I wish they made the logo bigger" line.

The Comic Sans Defenders deface logotypes

Shit Art Directors say to Comic Sans: OW! My Eyes!

Well, the Comic Sans project hope to change that. By re-doing famous and easily recognisable logotypes using only the right pantone and Comic sans, they hope you might warm up to the wonky face.

WE ARE THE COMIC SANS DEFENDERS. WE FEAR NO FONTS AND WE WILL MAKE THE WHOLE WORLD COMIC SANS.
BECAUSE HELVETICA IS SOOO 2011

It really just a question of time before we have the Comic Sans movie. It'll be a horror film, of course. And yes, it's enterily possible thet the comic sans defenders are taking the ironic piss, which is so 90s by the way.

Happy holidays from Organic, Droga5 and the angry designers tired of making Holiday cards.

This year, the ad agency Xmas cards are a little nut. The one where you'll see the most naked man leg is the innocent-sounding Ugly sweater from Organic, where everyone at Organic pose in their ugliest holiday sweater. And nothing else. Oh dear. Thank you for the pixels.

The Droga5 christmas card is more of a ... press release. Of course, this made me laugh out loud. so points guys. Well played.

Droga5 today announced its selection of McGarryBowen as the advertising agency of record for its holiday card business. The hard-fought win caps a stellar growth year for Dentsu-owned McGarryBowen. The agency will handle lead creative duties for the Droga5 holiday card account.
