Toronto Crime Stoppers - You stay anonymous - (2013) print Canada

DDB Canada explains " We wanted to boil down the fundamental proposition of Crime Stoppers in the simplest most compelling way — if you witness a crime and report it, you retain your anonymity. This campaign strives to remind people of that simple truth. " The images show crimes being committed while obscuring the anonymous witness' face. Simple.

Bugles: The Game That You Eat

Courtesy of Cossette Toronto, this campaign encourages you to treat Bugles as "the game you can eat," which is great because I remember having these when I was a kid and it was kind of like eating salty sawdust. Weird stuff.

Happy Creepy Christmas from Swiss Chalet (Canada)

Happy Creepy Christmas from Swiss Chalet (Canada)

This destined to be classic from the Canadian chain is from 2009, I think.

I remember living in Montreal when I first saw it. I was sitting next to a civilian* when I turned to them and asked "Is this a completely creepy disturbing ad or what?

I soon shared the creepiness with other friends. From then on, every time the commercial aired, we made up stories about the daughter and father. Exactly why is she so taken aback when he arrives? Why does she feign ignorance at being taken to her "favorite place?" And why does she act with such a degree of stoic sadness when he ahem-- imitates rudolph.

Feel free to take a break from your egg nog and make up your own stories.

Calgary Farmers Market - Cow, Rooster, Pig (Snow angels)

Hmmm. Snow angels made by a cow, a pig and rooster. Sadly, at first glance on the cow one I thought we were dealing with a mutant naked man. Oi. I need sleep.

ASSS - Heart in distress / Sound billboard - Canada.

Here's a clever way to teach people what a heart in distress actually sounds like - allow them to plug their headphones in and listen while they wait for the bus. The idea is to transform their headphones into stethoscopes and voila, the city is full of hobby-doctors.

Portfolio night 10 - getting people into the ad world since 2003

Portfolio night is here again, and the budding little ad-men embryos will use all of their creative skills to get in the biz. Striking visual, instead of a sperm heading toward the egg it's a pin aiming to poke the condom. Which will result in a very sloppily broken condom much like a pin meeting a balloon does. So wait, the new generation of adkids are going to destroy advertising? That makes sense. Get me some of those for my agency plzkthxbai.

Yes, the portfolio night tour is on again and if you want some experienced eyes on your work kids, look up your city and get ready to rumble. MAY 23, 2012 is the date to remember, and you can attend in Stockholm, Dublin, Shanghai, Athens, Beijing, Budapest... etc and so on.
