Will Innocean win in Cannes with Kia flat faces, or will judges remember prior flat faces?

Oh Innocean, you've barely recovered from the suicide Hyundai ad debacle and now I see you're sending this to Cannes. (see also this idea was already done in 1997, and "officially older than dirt".)

Copyright ignoring t-shirt makers thrive at Etsy, ripping off an illustrator near you

Jacqui Oakley is an established illustrator who uses oil, acrylic and elbow grease. You can find her on twitter as JacquiOakley, and her work on thousands of pinterest-boards, often uncredited and unlinked. She made this this Rihanna & zebra illustration with a splash of hot pink, and found much to her surprise an Etsy account selling a t-shirt with that print on it. A shop that has not asked for her permission.

Clio award student win this year, was already a Clio award interactive win last year

It's been a while since I badlanded stuff, despite seeing badlanders every day, as I find it's no fun unless there's an interesting twist to it. Leave it to Badland-ninja Joelapompe to nudge me with this pairing. Students win Clio silver for the same idea that got a Clio bronze the year prior. Twist!

Brazil has competing rock radio apps

Wow, it was barely an hour ago I was all excited about UL 89FM's Rock Snooze app, featuring the heavy metal guitar shredding of Andreas Kisser of Sepultura.

Now I come to find out 91 Rock, another rock radio station in Brazil, has a very similar idea. Instead of just using Adreas Kisser though, you can pick your playlists. And if you are a deep sleeper, as the case study says, the songs will get heavier.

Two very similar apps for rock radio stations in Brazil on the same day! It's a rock and roll miracle!

Yes another (failed) suicide by car: Honda!

Joelapompe says that perhaps this idea is like a Zombie, impossible to kill, and he may have a point because no matter how many times this idea should be shot down before it even hits foamcore, we see it again and again. Most recently for Hyundai, previously for Smart Car, that infamous Audi ad, Nissan in 1997, and Citroen's black comedy.

The is officially older than dirt, badlanded twice in one day last week, and we are oh so tired of it.

Hyundai suicide by car ad idea, officially older than dirt (one more!)

Seriously? Again? It feels like I could make a spin-off site dedicated to posting only suicide by car ad ideas, because yes folks we've found one more. This idea practically owns the suicide tag on adland.

Our first Badlander was when Audi A5 suicide ad (spec job), was shown side by side with Brian Baderman's Citroen suicide. While most comments agreed then that the Audi one was too dark and therfore less funny, the web didn't care and the Audi a5 suicide ad spread like wildfire (much to Audi's dismay! They want nothing to do with this spec job). Then Hyundai joined in the Badland hall of shame, and earlier today a Nissan ad from 1997 joined the group being (so far) the oldest executed idea.

One more suicide by car - this idea was already done back in 1997

Hold up everyone, the suicide by car Badlander isn't done yet. It's been badlanded once, twice, and now three times! Badland-Ninja Joelapompe points out that the suicide by car has been used in advertising as far back as 1997 in South Africa.

Suicide by car: now clean emissions Hyundai join Citroën & Audi in Badland

Remember Audi A5 Suicide vs Citroën Suicide by car: Carbon monoxide poisoning isn't what it used to be? Well it still isn't what it used to be, or perhaps this gag is becoming so common this is the new normal - everyone with clean emission cars fail at suicide.


Updates! one more suicide by car - this idea was done as far back as 1997, but wait! There's MORE Suicide by car ad idea officially older than dirt!

Questions for Gioni's Revenge campaign

There's been a lot of talk about the silly condiments spanking the people as revenge campaign all over the interwebz. No doubt you've seen it. We've posted about it, too. We've had questions for Milan advertising agency Alch1m1a.
Questions that no one else has asked. So we will be the first:

Question: did this shit even run, since it's nowhere to be found on your website?

Question: (which comes from a hat tip): Since Kami Tora is a very prominent manga/hentai artist, did it ever cross your mind to I don't know, maybe not make it so obvious you traced the image (minus nut sack) of the same dude gettin' his butt spanked?
