Battlestar Galactica and a rather unfortunate commercial pairing.

Remember the "Good old days" when media buying actually involved knowing what might happen in the show advertised on, and tailoring your ads content after it? Yeah, neither do I really, but they say stuff like that did happen. These days with chunk-buying and no idea when things air, random fuckups happen instead - few as amusing as the combination of this Battlestar Galactica scene and following commercial though. If you don't see the funny immediately, wait for the lyrics to kick in. Youch!

No sweetie, That "cops don't see bank robbers" viral video isn't real, it's a commercial.

This is just a note to tell y'all who might have missed it that the "INCREDIBILE!!! 100% stupid cops!!! They Don't See Criminals!" video up on youtube, which has gathered some 1,2 million views isn't what you think it is. I keep getting mails about this now, and that's rather funny in itself since it's at least a year since it was released.

Sure, you fellow adlanders probably thought "fake" but real hardcore adgrunts will also see that it is the 2007 Chevy Malibu "Bank Robbery" commercial, simply shot from a different angle. Virals are a funny beast that way. They're ads without the logo at the end most of the time.

Friday Fun: The top viral videos of 2008.

Lets start adland-Friday off a little lighter than my morning has been, shall we? The top viral videos of 2008 have been edited together by Videogum, watch out for the Obama RockRolling you've been warned. Viral in this context does not mean "advertising" but don't be surprised if a lot of viral ads do something they found in this lot next year.

Macys Thanksgiving day parade is the biggest Rickroll ever.

This is either Rickrolling jumping the shark or fantabolous cheez at its very best depending on who you ask. Pleasing to kids who love Foster's, moms who like harmless cartoons and everyone in on the rickroll joke (ie, us internet hipster folk who watch adult swim) at the same time. Plus, Rick gets to show off that he still has all that wavy hair and can belt out the notes and be cute just like in the eighties. Is it a freudian slip that the voice over guy pronounced "phenom" as feNOM?

The obvious comeback from Apple's campaign: "Microsoft spends more on ads than fixing Vista"

This idea probably formed faster than anyone can say "Vista", this comeback was practically handed to Apple on a silver platter - summation: Microsoft spends more money on advertising Vista than fixing it. Ha ha ha....

Suicide Kittens - finally, a use for trigonometry

My suicidal instincts aren't wha tthey should be, I kept trying not to hit the kittens, but the point is to kill yourself in 4mations suicide kittens flash game. You have to manoeuvre the 4mations' kitten-skull character "General Tiddles" and shoot laser beams from its eyes in a bid to ultimately self-destruct in a Kamikaze-style finale. The Ka-bloom is quite satifying. Trivia: General Tiddles also appears in two animated viral films ‘Driving School’ and ‘Deep Philosophy’ and an ‘interactive blog badge’ designed to let bloggers support 4mations by adding it to their blog.

One word.. Maverick. Maverick Maverick Maverick.

The Denver Egotist points out that Jeff & Rich totally pound McCain with these ads:

In a continuation of the entire creative world uniting against John McCain in support of Barrack Obama, comes this new set of spots that were supposedly funded directly by Jeff Goodby and Rich Silverstein out of their own pockets, uploaded onto YouTube, then sent around for coverage.

Maverick

Don't Vote.

A good example of reverse psychology in advertising. It's chock full of celebrities so it's semi-entertaining.

Oh Fuck! - The Economist Cover September 2008

Hats off to the uber-intelligent folks at 'The Economist' who have, in just two words, so eloquently captured how we are all feeling about the current state of the financial markets.
