Greenpeace twists the movies climate change drama around by asking: "The Day After Tomorrow - Who will you blame?"
"Millions of people will see this film and want to do something about the growing menace of global warming. When they visit our site, they'll learn about the real life disaster of climate change - currently being directed by Esso and produced by George W Bush," said Rob Gueterbock of Greenpeace. "This movie may be fiction, but climate change is real and we know who the bad guys are."
Greenpeace website includes movie trailers, featuring real impacts of climate change and the possibility to change the outcome of it by "taking action" now. Hat tip to Michiel
Remember WET magazine? Jennifer Sharpe has uploaded two whole issues of this late seventies gem just in time for us ripping the look in our current early eighties revival... In short, awesome eyecandy!
Meanwhile the prediction that everyone (and their animated spokescreatures) will soon have their own blog is truer that true. Google just started their own blog Googleblog, where they'll post Regular bloggy things: What Larry had for breakfast. What Sergey thinks of that Hellboy movie. Which Dawson's Creek character reminds us most of Eric. And perhaps, news about Google.....

Very cool site... (Dentsu Advertising Museum)
I wonder if they would qualify for the Dead Ad Festival? ;-)
The controversial viral cat decapitation ad for ford Ka which gathered many more complaints than their pigeon killing car last year has also gathered much more press. While Snopes was out early debunking and rebunking the ad, and we posted it April 02 the day after the 'leak', the hype hasn't calmed down yet!
W. Lynn Garrett spotted that there are no Patron Saints for Graphic Design. "everybody's covered except for graphic designers" - until now! Lynn created the Six patron saints of Graphic design. Bless!

Orange juice taks up the fight with the Aitkins diet crazed consumers with new ads that will appear in April according to Firstcoastnews.
The commercial will show a man feeding a kitchen blender rutabagas, liver, okra, brussels sprouts, a banana and four oysters as he explains that those are the foods a person would need to consume to get the equivalent vitamins and minerals found in a glass of orange juice.

Mazda tries to go viral with this little commercial about a carwash that magically gives you a brand new car. then the tired couple try the mega-wash on each other... *yawn*
Found at Revolution Magazine:
Virgin Mobile breaks a new advertising campaign spoofing "both East End gangster flicks and chicks-with-guns videos" in an effort to get people to check out their latest deals.
The ad is only available online, and is titled "Scorching Girls." Rainey Kelly Campbell Roalfe/Y&R created the ad.
You might have seen the 3D pavement images in emails, but did you know who the artist was?
It's Julian Beevers work, and his homepage here boasts more photos. Commissioned work includes ads for Sony Computers as well as potential ad ideas for fly spray to soft drinks, all very skilled anamorphic illusions, guaranteed to stand out. ;)
Revolution Magazine gives the low down on a new viral campaign created by Lowe for RunnersNeed.com.
"Leap Day is traditionally the one day every four years where it is acceptable for a woman to propose to a man.
In the viral campaign, called "Leg it" a woman goes through a series of unappealing ablutions as she prepares for her lover to come over for a romantic dinner." She adds the final touch to her dessert, a male engagement ring. The door bell rings and the spot ends with the woman opening the door to an unseen boyfriend as "February 29. Time to start running lads" supers over her.
This spot was created by Simon Brotherson and Steve Paskin and directed by Matt Follows through 2am Films.
See the film: www.doahoudini.com.
A new Volvo ad , a "documentary" (rather, a mockumentary), tells about the "mystery of Dalarö" where 32 families bought the same model car, a Volvo S40, on the very same day. The mocumentary ad can be viewed here, and in cinemas in the UK.
Now the site of Carlos Soto, the "director" of the mocumentary has a film where Carlos questions the authenticity of the Dalarö-mystery.
"I have posted a personal edit of the footage here. I point out inconsistencies that occurred to me while reviewing the footage, and show an accurate and impartial view of what I saw. The original edit tells what I thought was a genuine story, that I no longer do."
The kicker is, there is no Carlos Soto............
We don't know how we ended up in Anabuki's theatre , but we did and watched their ads.
We really wonder what that little Red Ridinghood is trying to sell? Healthdrugs? Prostate medicine? Can someone explain her furry friends balls? This is a japanese ad worh watching, if only for the 'wauw' at the end. Onwards to the cryptic ad.
Behold, the TV spots tailor made for viralocity. Har Mar Superstar dances about, he is the new Vladivar Vodka front man.
What does he think is the best thing about Vladivar vodka? "They have me as their spokesperson."
Who ever said suburban Minnesota white boys can't rock the palace?

Now that Napster relaunched as a pay service, trotting out a campaign about the cat being back, Kaaza is planning an adcampaign of their own.
According to a brief statement previewing the campaign, the print ads will be a "call to action to peer to peer users to communicate the message that, given the chance, users will pay a fair price for movies, music and games from P2P networks." The ads are also intended to let traditional entertainment corporations know that they are 'missing a huge opportunity to reach file-swapping communities'. The print ad campaign will launch the 19th of November.
