Rekorderlig Swedish School - How it all began - (2012)

Rekorderlig Swedish School - How it all began - (2012)

Rekorderlig Cider, a cider brand that comes in all sorts of flavors and alcohol-levels but isn't Snakebite material, has launched their brew in the UK and are trying to tap into the market by selling itself on... its Swedish-ness?

Yes, in this ad we meet über-stereotype Olof Håkansson who founded the Swedish school, and a few of his blond über-Swedish teachers. They teach Swedish-ness, not Swedish. Swedish-ness includes knowing what it feels like to dip your head in ice-water. As a 100% Swede who has swum in ice-water, I'm not sure I find all the reindeer references as funny as they are making me hungry.

"Knullrufs"

The funny isn't in that it's difficult to pronounce. The funny lies in the fact that we have a word for "sex-hair". You bedhead language countries are missing out.

It takes a certain thing to make a beard Swedish. Just open your eyes, wake up and smell the apples.

Audi A6 - Click / Split second - (2012) :30 (UK)

Audi UK recently launched a major multi-million advertising campaign, created by BBH in collaboration with production by B-Reel, for the new A6 range that ran during England's first match at Euro 2012. A striking film - which highlights the A6 bi-turbo diesel's amazing ability to make 2,000 automatic decisions per second to assist the driver - premiered on ITV1 and ITV1HD during the England versus France game last Monday, June 12, 2012.

The slot, which is one of the most prestigious of the year, is the first of a fully integrated multi-platform campaign which will run until September.

The picturesque 40-second advertisement was filmed in Iceland, where the rugged terrain and extreme climate allowed the A6 to perfectly showcase the benefits of its cutting-edge technologies.

the IPA made Adland Lego figures, collect them all!

Top old blokes of advertising, sorry, leading industry figures including Sir Martin Sorrell, Sir John Hegarty, Lord Bell, Johnny Hornby and Jeremy Bullmore, have been immortalized in Lego as part of a ‘build your career’ campaign to highlight the high calibre of speakers that the IPA’s 44 Club attracts. SO cute.

The Lego figures, created by 44 Club committee member and Leo Burnett creative Ben Gough and photographed by Adrian Burke, will appear on a series of postcards to be sent to the industry’s HR managers and those new to the industry.

Murdoch runs a "We are sorry" full page press ad

The text of this apology ad reads as follows:

We are sorry
The News of the World was in the business of holding others to account.
It failed when it came to itself.
We are sorry for the serious wrongdoing that occurred.
We are deeply sorry for the hurt suffered by the individuals affected.
We regret not acting faster to sort things out.
I realise that simply apologising is not enough.
Our business was founded upon the idea that free and open press should be a positive force in soceity. We need to live up to this.
In the coming days, as we take further concrete steps to resolve these issues and make amends for the damage they have caused, you will hear more from us.
Sincerely
-- Rupert Murdoch
