Trendspotting - getting undressed-dressed is getting tedious

Sure, it's a really neat trick, but we're seeing too many ads using that undressed/dressed thing recently.
If you're scripting something like this you may want to wait a year or two before doing it again. ;)

Personally, I love the Levis one.

Apple - iPod shuffle - Put Some Music On (2006) :30 (USA)


Levis - Dangerous Liaisons (2007) 0:90 (UK)

Typographic hugs, times two.

Here's a funny pair - on valentines day the Advertising & Graphic design School Berghs in Stockholm put up 650 posters over the city on the theme "Loveletters". One poster has some striking similarities to a recent campaign for the post created by M&C Saatchi Melbourne, way down on the other side of the planet.

iBrush toothbrush with tunes homages Apple 1984

This commercial prompted Clayton to email :

hacky hack mchackerhack

"Do you think anyone will notice if we rip off that ancient Apple 1984 commercial?"

"Nah. And even if they do, we'll call it an 'homage' or some sh*t like that."

Musical brush? Apple 1984-like advert? Kids these days have it so good, why in my day you actually had to brush your own teeth to the sound of.. brushing - and the 1984 ad blew everyones minds. Get off my lawn!
Meanwhile Orwell spins in his grave so fast we might be able to harness that as an environmentally friendly energy source.

Ryanair ad gets spoofed by Greenpeace

Greenpeace were never about making friends - this week they've gone and spoofed a Ryan Air ad. Allegedly both the independent and guardian newspapers have refused to carry the ad spoof by greenpeace - holding up the usual "lets not bite the hand that feeds us" excuse. In the land of commercial speech the biggest wallet always wins.

Thanks to viralmeister for the images - which you can see inside.
