Kia - Kia corners / Newspaper man / Busker / Street walker - posters / billboards

Corner-posters? Billboards that use an angle? Oh hells yes we've seen this before. The idea here is to convey that car takes corners well. Despite there being no car seen, so at least that's new.

The Guardian - Thatcher / Marmite - MarmiteGuardian

Thank you The Guardian for summing up exactly how people feel about Margaret Thatcher in this witty irreverant visual.

Both those who loved her, and those who hated her, can join in a tiny smirk at "contains iron", and nod their heads yes in recognition. Finally, the pitchforks and torches were laid to rest as we all went to put the kettle on.

The Tutor Crowd corrects graffiti & street slogans saving us from bad grammar

thetutorcrowd.tumblr.com is the tumblr where all the helpful street graffiti tutoring has been collected for your enjoyment. You see, people who vandalize walls usually don't have the best grasp on spelling and grammar. They'll write slogans like "Less Boats, More Fish" (Oh wait, that was greenpeace), and forget where the apostrophe goes despite Bob the angry flower's helpful guide. So The Tutor Crowd, which is a website that helps you find tutors, have made this clever campaign to alert yobs out there of their services. Cheap on media?

London-based post production house My Brother Bob has released an online film to showcase their talents. What I was afraid was going to be a tasteless joke, is redeemed by the very very funny reveal. Sickos. Nice job.

Axe / Lynx - Fireman - (2013) :60 (UK)

Axe / Lynx - Fireman - (2013) :60 (UK)

In "Fireman" a gorgeous specimen of the profession finds a young lady in distress and sets out on a mission to save her in the most heroic way possible, all the while looking sexy , and forgive the pun, smouldering to boot. He races up a stair that burns down at once, he crashes through doors, he ends with an epic getaway from an exploding building, sheltering her in his strong arms, and as their eyes meet once they are in safety...

She spots something better coming down the street! Yep. Ladies may be a sucker for uniforms, but there's levels to the uniforms. Some uniforms are better than others. Let this be a lesson to you all. The best uniform in the birthday suit, by the way, in case anyone was wondering.

Royal Mail just revealed their Doctor Who stamps - all with tardis.

Royal Mail reveals Doctor Who stamps reports the BBC and the designs are little time-capsules of the shows style. Tom Baker, David Tennant and Patrick Troughton are featured on the 50th anniversary stamps. Doctor fans rejoice.

Andrew Hammond of the Royal Mail said the commemorative selection "pay tribute to the brilliant actors that have played the Doctor over the years, as well as the adversaries that helped make the show so popular".

This post brought to you by Orbital Dr Who theme and my current flashback to the 90s and I platform-boot-danced to this shit live under the clear starry night. I have lived. Like my t-shirts says, I may be old but I got to see all the cool bands.
