Creatives launch PSA

Let's face it. We've all been out of work. Some more than others these last few trying years. But I got sick of it! Plain sick. Fed up. So I stepped up and kicked my pride right out the window. Humiliation is my middle name. I (Joe Leih, director) joined up with out of work copywriter Marc Guttesman and out of work art director Tom Millar and together we made a public service announcement. That’s right. Our own PSA. Pleading, no crying, for a job. Never take charity, hell no, we take charity. Check it out at http://www.marcandtom.com. And check out the spot credits too. Help those in need.

You knew it was bound to happen, some have alredy called him that for years - here he is Subservient Blair! Make him dance, jump, Rock'n'Roll, beg for mercy, lie to you and so on......

Suckers come to Bacardi.

Bacardi is seeding a new viral ad which seems to follow somebodies unwritten rule that virals need to have sophomoric crude and often sexist humor in it in order to spread. These are the virals we usually don't pass around because there's a limited pool of people we can share that with.

Google loves Ikea = true.

For all you google fans, there is a new toy on the ever encompassing searchengine, Google Suggest. Start typing a word and Google will suggest words that might be the one you are looking for. So what happens if you type the letter "I"? Ikea beats both Ipod and imdb to the top slot.

Amazon is the first suggestion on "A", and "Nokia" is the second suggestion on "N". How many brands can you find in this new toy?
Read more about this idea and how it works at googles blog, I have a suggestion.

CNN under your command campaign.

CNN has done a humorous ad campaign on the web where they poke a little fun at themselves. Anderson Cooper knows everything, Christiane Amanpour has a bug-a-boo peeve when people mispronounce Iraq, and to top it all off the site even shares some out takes and behind the scenes of each ad that are funny as well. CNN: at your command taken to the extreme.

In the words of Wolf Blitzer.. It's the drama, the passion, the blood, the guts.. It's a commercial. Lou Dobbs will not have a sitcom with his co-actor in the future though. ;)

Who blogs? Women do!

Since there is a such a hype about advertising on blogs lately, with strange inventions like Marqui who pay bloggers to blog about Marqui (I did not get paid to blog that) I thought you might be interested in some blog-statistics. Yes I know, torture the numbers long enough and they'll admit to anything, but I find this valid.

Dog Judo is gonna getcha - woof!

Virgin Mobile is out with a new series of cooky clips, called Dog Judo. The campaign for christmas camera phones stretches from posters to the web, James Kydd, brand director for Virgin Mobile, said: "Our Christmas camera phone print campaign is all about taking snapshots during humorously named, unmissable events - from 'Nuns on Ice' to 'Topless Trampolining'. When we saw the animated characters created by 12foot6, a 'Dog Judo' event fitted perfectly with both the camera phone campaign and our brand's renowned sense of humour. So we agreed to sponsor a funny new web-exclusive animation series from 12foot6."

Grafica Happy Holidays acct win!

My favorite part of December is not the copious amounts of Glögg, the embarrasing Xmas parties scandals, nor the crowds in every shopping street around the world - but the wacky seasons greetings from every ad agency out there.
Gráfica Group has made a mockumentary of their recent account win -- they got the "Happy Holidays" account and did a great job at rekindling the happy spirit of the holidays. Complete with a gratutious boob shot, naturally. ;)

Octogenarian fixerupper

They've been saying for years that as the population ages, we're bound to see more products targetting the seniors market. But power tools to 80-something Russian grandmothers?
