Hubba Bubba hijacking other ad posters for their bubble-ads?


Ok, so this Hubba Bubba campaign which was released march 2007 seems to be piggy-backing on all other advertisers posters.... I have no idea how BBDO Düsseldorf pulled that off, but then again BBDO has triumpf and P&G (Ariel as seen below) so this might have been only running on their own clients thing, in which case - more power to ya! Well done. (the badland twist is inside folks)

Advertising Agency: BBDO Düsseldorf, Germany
Creative Directors: Ton Hollander, Marie-Theres Schwingeler, Toygar Bazarkaya, Ralf Zilligen
Art Director: Julia Furtmann
Copywriter: Kai Hoffmann

TouchBlue vs Carl's Jr: Is that egg on your face?

Not one, but two different guys (non adgrunts with yahoo emails so it could in fact be the same guy) sent me this 'scoop' within two minutes of each other so I'm guessing some people out there are peeved about this brainsync.

Lets watch the clip "Knight School", made way back in 2005 by the sketch comedy group Touchblue.

Jackie Moon shills both Old Spice and Bud at the same time.

Did Wieden+Kennedy and DDB Chicago have the weirdest brainsync of them all? They both fancy using Jackie Moon as spokesperson. First he was in a hugely popular Bud Light ad during the 2008 Super Bowl XLII, now he's hanging around the same locker room espousing the virtues of le Old Spice in his trademark way. Didn't Will Ferrel at some point say "hay, guys.... I'm already playing spokesperson for another brand here, airing at the same time.." I guess not.

Sure sure, this is only a kindof a Badlander, but I think the sudden Jackie Moon trend is funny. Next up, lets see him hawk razors, hair gel and fast food!

Check the ads out:
Bud Light - Jackie Moon / Semi-pro / Will Ferrell (2008) 0:30 (USA)

Old Spice - Jackie Moon / Caveman - (2008) :30 (USA)

Balloon animals and other condoms badlander

Thanks for purplesimon and Andreas-Udd for helping me recall where I had seen this trick before. Here's a small collection of condom balloon creatures.


Durex wheelbarrow from Ogilvy Singapore and Durex rabbit from Tonic Communications, Dubai. I like the rabbit, it's cheeky.

What's missing is inspiration. MMmkay?

Resume has a picture of a long billboard in Stockholm today that spells out the line: What's _issing _n St_ckholm?

Resumé reckons that they nicked the clever missing letters idea from the campaign for H&M that read: _HATS _ISSING in SOHO?. I saw those when I lived in New York in 2001, but didn't have my camera handy.

We'd just like to point to earlier ads in Badland ingle Ells for J&B and illeniu for M&M's, the M&M's did this eight years ago and the J&B ad is more than thirty years old.

Honorary Badlander: Plagiarizing books.

From the lazy way to write something department, celeb designer Jimmy Schönning in Sweden has admitted that he plagarized most of his book "Find Home" (Hitta hem) from celeb designer Nate Berkus book "Home Rules". Jimmy says to newspaper Aftonbladet "It was a pressed work situation, I was doing a lot of TV and had taken on too much work with magazines and interior decorating jobs in private homes. At the same time I was trying to complete a book project for the first time and it was all just too much.

A double barreled Badlander.

Been a while folks, so here's a couple of wine and beer bottles that'll have you seeing double. I don't think the creators should beat themselves up - or god forbid shoot themselves - over it though as we all have drawn this one, at least once.. Right? Hat tip to Johan Olsson for this pair.

Ads inside.

Brawndo the Thirst Mutilator vs Funny or Die video

So we're watching the new Brawndo ad thinking "is that even real!?" (yes, it is) when Jason from the Wurstgallery (totally worth a visit dudes), starts wagging a Badlandian finger at it saying it's like a second rate version of... dum dum DUM!

Oh you'll have to go inside to see what we mean. Cliffhanger! Ha!

The current Domino trend in advertising.

Adgrunt Hlebarov though we should send the Guinness tipping point to the Badland corner for doing the domino-thing that the Honda Cog (inspired by Der Lauf Der Dinge) already did way back in 2003, and I promised an honorable mention if we could get a hold of the Claes Ohlsson campaign. Thanks to another adgrunt, deep.ed a.k. Swedish ad blogger Researcher's tracking of the trend we have not one but five six more things to put in here with it!
Without further ado, Guinness vs Claes Ohlson, vs Sony vs Tekserve vs a Fat Boy Slim video. Seems Fat Boy slim videos are the main source of badlandian inspiration for some. Oh dear, I almost forgot Miller's "Dominoes" which fits here as well.
