Nokia N8 - Dot - the worlds smallest stop-motion animation character

Nokia N8 - Dot - the worlds smallest stop-motion animation character

The Nokia N8 has a macro-lens attachment, CellScope. This was a technical detail only nerds could love until W+K and Aardman turned into magical must-have for everyman. This sums up their strategy quite well, "It's not technology, it's what you do with it"

NABS - for everyone in the world of advertising, new campaign from RKCR/Y&R

NABS*, the advertising industry support body, has unveiled a new ad campaign showcasing its services for ‘everyone in the world of advertising’.
The new humorous ad campaign created by RKCR/Y&R tackles employment issues but also highlights the many services NABS has on offer from career advice to training. The campaign launches in the trade press and across digital panels at 13 London Underground stations donated by CBS Outdoor. My personal favorite "Global head of international accounts". Man, I should make up a good title like that.

Ikea - Cats / Happy Inside - (2010) (UK)

Ikea - Cats / Happy Inside - (2010) (UK)

Mother, London have had a blast herding "100 cats" through the Wembley branch of Ikea for this advert. Kittens sit in cups, there's slow motion footage of cats jumps, a big white fellar named Leo explores all the easy open drawers available and soon they settle down, taking catnaps everywhere. Home. It's full of cat hair.

I love it. I'm a sucker for cats, you know. My only raised eyebrow is with the shot of spotty-furry guy pulling his head out of the "minnen" bed. That's the very same bed a four year old girl suffocated in attempting a similar move as the cat. If I were the client, I'd ask you to replace that with another beauty-shot.

Axa insurance, for pavement rage. (2010) :30 (UK)

“You wouldn’t behave this way on foot, so why would you do it when you’re driving?” Hmm. I don’t know. I’ve met a few people who should have their walking privileges revoked. But Axa doesn’t reward THEM, only considerate you.

Intercasino - Tennis stars from yesteryear - print, UK

Casinos - they have the lovely stylish reputation from Bond movies, but in reality they're the pop-up riddled face-tattoing plague of tacky marketing. Take this lovely shot of an older female player's ass, as the ad to promote a competition to win VIP tickets to the Aegon Masters Tennis Tournament at the Royal Albert Hall watching "Tennis stars from yesteryear". Brandrepublic says

The full-page ad will run in this Friday's issue of the free title Sport magazine.

Oh RLY? Yeah, that's not at all tacky as hell, guys.
