Kent's Meats and Groceries store in Redding, was almost robbed by a bumbling burglar, and this security footage of the incident was so popular in the last week of March that it was featured on Good Morning America, Jimmy Kimmel Live, Tosh.0, etc. Like the owners of Limonada Reserva Store, the Kent's Meats and Groceries guys decided to make a commercial out of their robbery-cam footage. Add some Benny Hill style music to really ham it up. Shame it loses a bit of the moment when the would-be robber trips out at the end, which is what makes this so funny.
"Imagine.. It's the middle of the night. You're sleeping. Your best friend calls for help...."
And so it begins, the stunt set to take over after the Biker cinema stunt, and hoping to spread. In this scenario, a friend is called to a poker game to help their friend get out "Bring 300€ or they won't let me go". The game is played in a seedy part of town, the heroic friend is greeted by beefy guards, then directed to walk past people boxing, hookers fighting, have to share an elevator with a creepy old chinese men eating mystery-food... and finally they reach the room where the game was played.
How would you feel if you were at the airport, minding your own business when suddenly all signs point to you being a wanted criminal. First there's your photo on the cover of the newspaper, then your description is called out of the loudspeakers, then to top it all of your face appears on a breaking news bulletin. Wait for it though! Soon the cops come marching in, asking "are you stressed?" as they open a steel briefcase.... with Nivea Deo in it. It's only a prank, played on an unsuspecting victim to demonstrate how great a stick of Nivea deo is.
To announce our 2nd edition of scratch n sniff direct mail promos for our photographers, we wanted to do a short teaser video acknowledging that we know creatives in agencies & design firms get alot of direct mail, some of which is useful but mostly ends up in the can. To play on the "sniff" part of the cards, we wanted a funny visual that would elicit a few laughs & hopefully keep the recipients on the lookout for the cards in their mailboxes. All done in jest, this in no way implies that creatives get inspiration from plants. :-)
Response has been great, it was featured by photo editor Rob Haggert on aphotoeditor.com, & tweeted by Euro RSCG Chief Creative Officer Steffan Postaer. YouTube hits are over 4,000, keeping in mind this was marketed to creative professionals only.
This stop-motion animation for WWF/EWS took over 150 hours of set building, 300 newspapers, and 200 hours of shooting for 2500 stills. The process took place in Dubai, Abu Dhabi and London and needed over 50 hours of meetings and more than 400 cups of coffee.
This stop-motion video has been made for WaterAid as part of the YouTube Cannes Young Lions Ad Contest. The spot was made with real rubber toys that grow with water.

Judit & Judit the comhem girls who already nod to Snapple's Wanda, have created a homage to all those virals out there in this 45 spot to celebrate that Comhem has delivered internet to Sweden since 1999. In it we see references to Mentos & Coke*, Chocolate Rain *, "Leave Britney alone!"*, the Swedish TV host who was suddenly ill on live television *, Nunchuck guy *, The Bad Day Viral (which already spawned it's own viral homage), Ansiktsburk * a turkish song subtitled with what it sounds like in Swedish, ending up being a love poem to "face-cans", and many more. If you recall all of them, you need to step away from the keyboard for a moment. ;)
The ad was shot by Traktor and created by King advertising agency, Stockholm.

This clip was part of an advertising campaign for surveillance computers from Loronix Information Systems originally launched back in 1995. In its original 5 MB form, it was distributed on a CD, but it was only when the computer-bashing clip was edited into a more manageable 416 KB file in 1998 that it began making its way around the world as an e-mail attachment. Vinny Licciardi plays the angry man who take it out on his computer.
