Clipwords is some sort of stock headline place that mean suits and/or clients have invented to torture the wordsmiths with. No, really - you can add up the benefits:
- KO's procrastination and writer's block at the same time!
- It's like brainstorming with a group of creative people!
- Right words to get your writing project off to a quick start!
- Adds a professional touch to the writing process!
- Now you'll never have to say, "I can't think of what to say!"
This site reads like an elaborate April fools, but it's for real, and gullible suits will fall for it. Yikes.
Adlister Michiel had me in tears when he emailed this delicious combination.
According to Wikipedia:
"A redshirt is a stock character, used frequently in science fiction but also in other genres, whose purpose is to die soon after being introduced, thus indicating the dangerous circumstances faced by the main characters. The term comes from the science fiction television series Star Trek, in which security officers wear red shirts and are often killed on missions under the aforementioned circumstances."
Adweek magazine's Ad Land cartoon presents life after the launch of the iPhone. By David t. Jones.
Greeting from David Jones and the beaches in the south of France where the ad awards are currently littering the sand and drunken creative directors are hitting on young media reps as hungry adkids exercise their creativity by trying to order champagne at the Martinez on the agency tab. Lets all do it again next year, shall we?
A British version of Truth in advertising (original 2000 posting) has made an appearance on the web.
Memorable line: "a quick wank and a Horlics".
We'd much prefer a quicktime rather than ew-tube of this so if it's your work please email it to us.
David Jones, cocky ad cartoonist has created the remedy for all those clients, AE's and other wannabes who always seem to want to play Art Director. A board game! Black turtleneck while playing is optional.
See game/toon inside.
I was reminded of this classic print ad when I saw a piece on Fifties interior paint colours in BoingBoing today.
This is a full page advertisement from A.M. (The Australian Magazine) of October 1954.
The copy reads "You'll really swing into Spring in the gayest possible way when you brighten up the outside of your homo with Bergermaster - the styrenated PLASTIC house paint."
Least I think that's what it says. My two year old threw my reading glasses off six stories this morning. And before you start, yes some of my dearest and closest friends are gay. And they love this ad. I'm thinking of selling prints of it on my site.
Finally, truth in advertising! There's a theme restaurant in Tempe Arizona named Heart Attack Grill that sells hamburgers called The Single Bypass, Double Bypass and Triple Bypass! Plus, there are french fries fried in lard and if that doesn't kill you, cigarettes! To make you feel better, the waitresses there wear sexy nurses outfits.
Adland's crew has been rather swamped of late. Our adlist mate, Brandon, posted (gosh was it really a month ago now! yipes!) on The Executive Coloring Book, printed in the 1960s. Fellow crewman Claymore happened to have a copy of the original book and did us the favor of scanning the pages. See the coloring book images here.
Mastercard has decided to rebrand and are now known as "Mastercard worldwide" with a new logo, shown below. I don't know how many gradients there are in there nor why the middle circle is off-center - but the obvious connection made by Matt at a.wholelottanothing made me laugh until I cried. And they thought they had image problems before.....If you don't know Goatse (safe Wiki link) you will not understand.
Warning: If you do not know Goatse do not google Goatse. You don't want to see it. Trust me.
