Lets play London Advertising Monopoly!

Admonopoly (also seen on twitter as @admonopoly ) have made a board that is full of injokes, and by the looks of it, totally playable. I love the cards on top:

Awards ceremony
You lose to a youtube-ripoff. Give £20 to each player

and

Student Book Crit
Steal brilliant strategy from student team. Pick up an award card.

I sense a bit of bitterness here....... ;)

Check out what's tweeted to @admonopoly - there are some gems like:

Poking fun at the riots and British Tourism ads (now pulled off air due to riots)

The British Tourism adding "They are not appropriate at this time". No kidding! The ads were actually running in BBC iPlayer programmes overseas, and likely appeared more than once coupled with BBC coverage of the riots.

It was of course bound to happen then, that someone decided to start mocking the British Tourism ads, with this parody. Visit Britain! Bring home a flat screen telly!

A look inside of Kittywood Studios - where cat videos are born

If you don't work in advertising or post in any way, you'll still find this amusing, If you do, you might laugh even harder.

"Sometimes we do full character creation, like OMG cat, which believe it or not, started out as an animation test by one of our interns. We didn't end up hiring him."

Copyranter shares the worlds largest dildo ad, and my mind immediately went to Miami with their skyscraper billb

Sartalics from BBH Labs - our dry asides will never be missed again.

BBH Interns have come up with a twitterblitz, twitter petition, twitter flashmob or whatever you want to buzzword it, idea to get the web to employ sartalics. The back-leaning italics that will make it perfectly clear to the reader that you are, indeed, being sarcastic. Hey this would be perfect for me, as I'm sarcastic most of the time and think this is a very

important world-changing idea

Lets get on this right away, shall we?

Social Fatigue - we've twittered, we've facebooked, we've G+....

The Marketoonist Tom Fishburne just took a stab at social fatigue with a spot on comic and blog post. You should have him in your RSS for a giggle-dose.

Charlie Brooker takes on advertising (and slaps a creative about)

You have to love 'Confessions of an advertising insider - Charlie Brooker's Screenwipe - BBC Four' if only because they managed to work in the awful line: "Right, so the director is shooting a load in to the actresses mouth." Yipes!

Stuck for ideas? Spin the "Wheel of Concept"

Thanks to wheel of concept I can piss off to the pub early, not only did it sort out what I should be doing for my next campaign, it even handed me a nice PDF chock-full of buzzwords that I can print out and impress people with.
