Adland-meme?

Clayton alerted me and the adlisters to a new site out there this morning, Marketing-Myopia.com, and I looked it over briefly, not all too suprised about it's similarities with Adland, until I read the part on how he found it:"FYI: This was found via a June 5 mention at zeldman.com Jeffrey Z's usually against this sort of thing, 'specially since his site's been scavenged by others so many times - is this Alanis Mor

Resexsion?

That Opium poster with the pale white nude Sophie Dahl - is now banned in most countries, like prude old Sweden and shockingly - Great Britain. Meanwhile back in Soho, FCUK are in trouble for that name again, you really should see Trevor Beattie's respons to that here. Stateside Ikea sells furniture with a leather teddy and a whip. Is sex the only way to get attention (and banned) these days?

Captain Morgan's secret pirate treasure - uncovered after 25 years!

You can picture it now: An advertising agency standing before the formidable board of rum lords Joseph E. Seagram and Sons, pitching an earth shattering idea in a pitch that will make all other contenders pale by comparison...

Seagrams: Is your idea original and innovative?

Ad agency: Hell yeah!

Seagrams: Will it sell boatloads of our Captain Morgan rum?

Ad agency: Hell yeah!

Seagrams: So what's your original and innovative idea that'll sell boatloads of our Captain Morgan rum?

Ad agency: Fake facial hair!

Seagrams: Excuse me?

If you can read this - the slogans inflated!

If you haven't read this line yet - what rock have you been hiding under? ah yes - that shirt. I remember it well. A colleague and I saw this image and promptly made such a shirt for our harley-crazy co-worker's leaving due. Did we see that shirt in an ad or in one of those images that get sent around emails? Can't remember. These two feel like they were an adaptation of each other..

Three Bears Attack! John West Salmon spawns stateside offspring 4 QTs at once

On November 20th of 2000, Leo Burnett released a commercial into the airwaves for a scrappy UK fish canner by the name of John West. Using a delightful blend of ursine humour, animatronic costumery and street-smart martial arts, the spot soon took off all over the Web, ending up in a plethora of in-boxes around the world. Then, in late January of 2001, three surprisingly similar concepts swam across the pond and leapt into the living rooms of America... (Would you like to know more? WARNING - four films in one go fast lines only!)

Presidential double whammy

The race - or non race as the case may be - of the US presidents inspired many a joke, ads and articles here at Adland already, but here's a new twist - repetitive topical ads. Badland next!

On Monday the 13th of November, E James White Communications - from Washington D.C. - ran an ad with the by now infamous ballot as their visual. On Friday the 17th, Apple - leader of making bubblegum flavoured computers - ran a similar ad also with the ballot as a visual.

Canadian and Australian beer infused rants!

Beer and patriotism go together - that's just the way it is. But to copy the famous Canadian "rant", except down in Oz? Now, don't be silly.

Adgrunts can view the commercials here: Molson Joe I am Canadian and Fosters I Believe

Internet Ad Virus - looks like another Mahir trick.

Here we go again.

If you have seen KingFrank.com you might have had a sense of Deju Vu.. Another media-virus internet site? Oh yes, but it gets even better than that.....

Earlier you might have read the articles about the rubberburner.com, borntodestroy.com and supergreg.com created by Paul and Linus at Fallon (US) for their client BuddyLee.

Canada and Australia have a lot in common.

You might have noticed that I mention the canadians teabaggers here once in a while, well, some hawkeyed ranter in that online forum has discovered yet another rip-off.

Now it's the Molson Rant that has been ripped off by Fosters Australia.

Try as you might, you could not avoid the avalanche of popularity the Molson Canadian Beer ad "The Rant" got this spring.

It was avidly written about in the tradepress, gossiped about in the regular Canadian press, and it even had it's own tail of urban myths.

Creative Hand Jobs

The most publicized "intellectual property" case in recent months has been mounted by Pets.com against a rubber puppet used on the Conan O'Brien show in a recurring skit.

Pets.com sued Robert Smigel, creator and voice of "Triumph, the Insult Comic Dog," to the tune of $20 million for defaming their "spokespuppet."

The irony is, Triumph is over three years old (in dog years that's the equivalent of 21). Pets.com introduced their sockpuppet only a year ago in August 1999.

Providing further evidence that Pets.com's puppet dog is a copycat is European ad sensation, Flat Eric, whose success proved that spokespuppets were a viable execution.

For a better grasp of this trend, read "Attack of the Puppet People."

wanted - an IDEA!

Have I told you once before? A layout is not an idea.

A layout can communicate an idea more or less effectivly - but never replace the idea. MmmKay?
