Adgrunts, we showed you the posters the other day when we wrote about the Adidas new campaign centers on impossible game, and now we're happy to show you the commercial too. The 60-second advert starring Ballack, Raúl, Defoe, Kaká and Saviola is available right here for super adgrunts. In it the footie heroes play on a field that is only the white lines on the grass, suspended in nothing. Step out of line and you fall off the map into the black void!
SpeakUp speaks on the controversial stamps from Mexico showing the cartoon hero Memín Pinguín, which caused such an uproar in the United States and Canada in the post: "Viva la Political Correctness". A good read about designers responsibility, even though the discussion might be slipping into usual flamefest territory if they aren't careful.
Two years ago, Pizza Schmizza paid homeless street-kids to hold up pizza signs as advertising for their pizza-by-the-slice company in San Francisco. They paid the kids in pizza and a few bucks, and while some might have found it cynical to use street people as media space, others compared it to the old-fashioned sandwich board.
Just like the Sisterhood Augustinessen, who used the media space of bums backs with a twist. Mid-winter they gave out free warm overcoats to the street people with signs advertising Ben and Jerry's on the back.
