Wrong is the new right. Copying is the new left.

WWW.TOSAY.IT "Public Interventions" displayed in the Behance gallery, the artists say their project is all about "text, streets and internet as an artistic medium"... but what I see is a very familiar line, and funnily enough a very similar type treatment. What are the odds?

Smart tiny billboard
Little Big Planet
 

Tiny billboards get mini-Badlanded.

Tiny billboards. Seen 'em. They're very cute. Sometimes they even make sense for the client. Even Andy and Joe have a wee one in their portfolio. The first billboard shown here is the most recent, for Smart cars - "small is beautiful", from BBDO, Toronto, Canada. Very adorable. aaaw. Back in 2008 Deutsch/LA did tiny billboards for "Little Big Planet". Also very cute. My favorite though is Johan Van Oeckel's work for Antwerpen Miniatuurstad (miniature city) back in 2006 - he didn't just have tiny billboards but also tiny ad trucks driving around the streets. Win!

Hot Wheels street-tape Cannes shortlist vs Matchbox street-tape 2008 - spot the difference

Big fat hint: there is none. No, wait! I know, in the 2008 German one I get to use that funky double-s that looks like a B when I describe it, since it's called: Die Straße ist überall. That was fun!

Bronze winning Cannes Lions ad and current Clio awards campaign like to timetravel

No, this isn't exactly the same, at all but the similarities are funny. Top image - Hasan and Partner campaign for the Clio Awards appearing Feb/March, 2011. Please don't be mad at me Ami - I'm easily amused today. ;)

Vanity Barcodes - designed barcodes are now big business worldwide

Currently a company called Vanity Barcodes are strutting their stuff in various press releases where founder Yael Miller from Jersey gets to explain all the fun barcodes they can offer. We recall a company called "Barcode Design" in Japan that won a Cannes Titanium for this in 2006, and so does everyone else. Though even back then, it was badlanded as Pfadfinderei in Germany did design for record labels that had fun with the codes earlier too. I'm not badlanding this to be mean, I'm alerting you designers out there to a new skill you'll need - plus it's fun! I bet you've been doing this to barcodes in you sketches for years already.

Silver Cannes Lions winner "F**K TREE" goes to badland. Seen it.

Knullträdet.se a.k.a F**K TREE won a Silver Lion in media this year, the 'campaign of the year' nomination in Sweden, and now the dubious honor to be included in the history of Badland.

You see, we wrote about the Durex Sex Tree idea here when Ad student Henrik Düfke at Miami Ad School showed it to us back in 2009. I hope he's the guy you hired, Starcom, but I don't see his name anywhere on the credits list, so I guess not huh? Shame shame. ;)

Samsung Fishes
Beko Tanks
 

Beko vs Samsung - fishes and tanks move toward external drive

Here's a pretty classic visual Badlander that seems to have popped into creative teams head this spring.

The print ad fort Samsung computers, which shows goldfish swimming to the disc icon, was created by Impact BBDO in Dubai this february. Tagline: "leave nothing behind" - store it all on Samsung HDD.

The print ad for Beko which contains tanks all trekking toward the USB device in the corner of the TV-set, is created by TBWA, Istanbul and ran in April/May 2011 - headline is "The USB recordable TV." .

For lots of brands, there's a party in your mouth

Earlier this week, I caught this new Snickers Ice Cream spot.

Creatives Obsessed with Spoofing Horror Films?

Creatives are influenced by the world around them and pop culture. Proof with these two horror movie inspired ads--One for Dirt Devil and a series for B&Q. At least they spoofed the classics instead of one of the new films in the genre. ;)

Directed by Andreas Roth, the spot titled "The Exorcist" to mark the Dirt Devil vacuum away the horror film of the same name to demonstrate the power of their products.

Urban outfitters carbon copy of Truche's United world of Love design

The other day, when my way too cool for school teenage niece asked me if I liked Urban Outfitters, I bit my tongue not to roll into a Badland tirade. I do love the store, you can get all kinds of crap-you-never-knew-you-totally-needed there (fashions? Not so much), but I have seen this sort of thing play out too often.
