Celebs react to the split of Mike & Ike. Really. Ike and Mike. YOU HADN'T HEARD?
McDonald's shows us how their "Open all night" reflective billboard works. By day, nothing. All white. Tremendously ad-free. By night it'll appear like a ghostly text enticing you to come get a coffee before you swerve off the road. It might not be the the pedestrian ghost levels of slam-on-your-breaks dangerous, but I'm pretty sure that sign would be non-kosher in Norway, where they regularly ban the H&M underwear ads for luring drivers into the ditch.
Pretty clever tho.
Red Tettemer + Partners created a digital campaign for The Melting Pot fondue restaurants where the first 25,000 people to sign up for the Brand’s Club Fondue on April 11, 2012 get free fondue. OooH! Ew? Fun-do! Sorry.
Integrating this cheesy holiday into “The Fondue Effect” creative platform that RT+P created for the franchise organization in 2011, cheese lovers should expect to experience “The Cheese Fondue Effect” in all of its cheesy glory. In addition to microsite creative, expect to see elements of creative on Club Fondue Email, on-premise collateral, corporate and franchisee Facebook pages as well as chatter on Twitter accounts (http://www.facebook.com/themeltingpotrestaurants and @TheMeltingPot).
This is a cruel, cruel stunt. One man runs off in a panic and honestly that's the sanest reaction because ones immediate thought when everyone around you faints isn't "I must have bad breath", instead it's "OMG NERVE GAS!", or perhaps "hilfe Zombie attack!"
Y&R In Turkey decided to gross us all out by using 2,548 hot sauce packets to make a billboard depicting a person reacting to the hot of the hot sauce.
Yes, real hot sauce packets. Good thing it doesn't rain too often, but it seems this hot sauce is also resistent to gravity. I don't want to eat that. But the passer-by caught in the photo here might be thinking about it. I wonder how long this stayed up before curious kid fingers ruined the motif? In a way it reminds me of the bubble gum by numbers posters, fascinating but gross. The bubble gum by numbers were a very clever way to encourage people to dispose of their gum properly though.
Mary J Blige sing about Burger King's "Crispy chicken wrap with three cheeses" and bloggers are horrified. Madame Noir calls it "buffonish". I'm not sure if Madame Noir is angry that BK are targeting people of color, that they called Mary so that she could sell out, or that Mary is singing about chicken while being a black woman, but she hates it.
Tool Director Erich Joiner teams with Droga5 Sydney on a recent TV spot starring Sharon Osbourne for BelVita Breakfast Biscuits.
Imagine a store where you don't pay with money, but instead with good deeds. Go on. Close your eyes. It's full of chocolate isn't it?
Yep the recent Anton Berg pop-up store, a.k.a the generous store, where you can not pay with money. Chocolate so good money can't buy it, anyone?
Oh wait, hold up. Something happened at SXSW that we should take note of,. The giant Doritos vending machine.
This weekend’s SXSW Music Festival featured a special stage that was a giant Doritos Vending Machine as part of Doritos launch of their new “Jacked” chip. The machine, created by Goodby, Silverstein and Partners, was 50 times larger than a typical vending machine, totaling six stories. The machine featured real bags of Doritos with giant chips in them. At the lowest level of the machine was a stage.
The stage saw several performers over the weekend, including a kick-off with Snoop Dogg and several other musical performances.
Pizza roulette? Yes, it's simple - you order a pizza and one slice has two drops of nuclear hot pepper sauce on it, but they won't tell you which one.
Awkward conversation I predict will happen all over America now. "Will you eat that?" "Hell yes, but OMG, that's a little personal don't you think!?" - "The patty melt, I was talking about the patty melt."
In their new Curiously Strong Facts campaign, via Energy BBDO, Blacklist’s Wizz and Flying V have created a trio of charming and clever spots which retell history infused with little-known Altoids factoids.
Dutch settlers nearly bought Manhattan for a tin of Altoids.
