Nando's are no strangers to joking with everyone and everything in their ad campaigns, but there's one thing they take seriously: threats to their own staff. A youth group loyal to Mr Mugabe has threatened Nado's staff after the Last Dictator standing aired, and Nando's has decided to pull the ad from airing reports BBC.

A statement from Nando's said: "We've noted with concern the political reaction emanating out of Zimbabwe, including perceived threats against Nando's Zimbabwe's management, staff and customers."

Hold up! Duke Nukem forever ad has been banned from pre-11pm TV. Why? The ASA finds the game-animated pole-dancing strippers "too explicit" for prime time. What about the pixelated peeing? Pixelated peeing has got to be worse, no? I mean an animated game-character with biological functions is just sick. ;P What kind of warped mind thinks that sort of thing up?

Couldn't help but notice that the Photolibrary.com calendar with all the various important photo award dates listed, is a tad similar to the recent Creative Calendar with all the important award dates listed.... At least in the base idea, list award deadlines on calendar. Not in execution, they're miles apart in style. Also, one is for a client while the other is self-promo for Leo Burnett, so they care about different award shows too.

Joe La Pompe shared this rather obvious cut&paste illustration job with the words "11 years after...". Perhaps people think that if the art you're tracing is old enough, people won't remember it? Somewhere there has to be a photograph of K2 through other mountain cracks that served as a base for these images, I'm sure of it. This reminds me of Nazi Meat, where an ad back in 87 had traced a Hitler Youth Poster for the genuine propaganda feel.... (posted 1998 and still going strong)

The tracing done on that image is hilarious, and matches up perfectly.

Ooops!. The Big Bus Challenge is a fun competition where the brief is to 'show off their skills with some brilliant Bus advertising', using the scale and shape of bus ads. The winning entry for the client Compassion in World Farming by ad agency Elvis Communications visually crammed sheep into the bus to remind us all that while we might think our commute stinks, animals have it far worse.

Which is all good, except WSPA already did exactly that back in 2008. On buses. And it was noticed.

It was a lovely sunny day this Saturday, and on the outside wall of the famous department store NK in Stockholm, Björn Borg met John McEnroe for a game of vertical tennis.

Except they were stuntmen, of course. "We couldn't convince the original players to do a re-match on the wall" said Pernilla Johansson, global PR-&-Event at Björn Borg, to Resume.se.
