The Mummy in Badland - UPC vs some Egyptian rent-a-car

Here's a Badlander sure to amuse, and horrify, all ye adgrunts out there.

No, not because there's a scary mummy in the ad, and not even because the mummy in the ad is played by one of the adgrunts here who did the ad - but because there's been yet another a case of recycling the ad image, not approved by anyone. Certainly not the model and photographer and creator of the original ad.

Folgers vs. Pizza Hut

Watch out when dine out in Badland. Everything tends to taste the same.

Google vs. Sonox: wa the hell?....

I found this at http://great-ads.blogspot.com (so I can't exactly vouch for its provenance) but it seems to be a German viral/guerilla ad for Google Video.

Showtime vs ACLU, parody or plagarism?

Remember when ACLU wentall flag-waving patriotic in a campaign shot by Peter Gerke? Yeah, I remember it too - even though it's almost 3 and a half years ago that Los Angeles Branding and Advertising Agency Benenson Janson "underlined the difference between talking the talk and actually taking a stand" with the imagery.

This american tongue idea is now showing up in an entirely different kind of campaign.

Ad council does global warming scare ads by killing kids.

"Think of the children! Won't somebody think of the children!"

The Ad Council has just come out with a campaign they trot out the old "think of the children" idea.

What a tired old idea. Remember the Daisy girl?

Military Stories

At the festival Mena Cristal Awards 2008 the agency Leo Burnett Beirut won Corporate Cristal for the commercial "Tribute to the Lebanesse Army":

Hmmm, nice commercial, but we still remember the "Thank you !" by Budweiser

Ad agency sues client for 1.5 million after lost pitch

Resumé reports that ad agency Badlord have filed a 1.5 millions SEK suit against Lindex for nicking their idea. Badlord went straight to Lindex and marketing director Johan Hallin with their idea, Mr Hallin suggested that agency Badlord bring the idea to Lindex' ad agency WeAreGroup. Later Badlord were told that the idea "wasn't enough fashion".

Now that this campaign above is in magazines, Badlord feel ripped off. Both Enzo Bussoli CEO of WeAreGroup and Johan Hallin of Lindex signed the standard Swedish advertisers contract, stating they won't use the presented idea or "similar ideas" in their advertising unless they hire Badlord.

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)
