We've all been there, when your client or boss says something incredibly stupid in he heat of the moment.
Lines like "What's the latest I can approve this and still have it ASAP?". Classics like "Perfect! See changes." and such - well Jim from Coudal.com and myself want you to AdVent!
Tell us the stupidest lines you've ever heard, and get a chance to win a 20pack from Jewelboxing, the professional-grade, short-run DVD/CD packaging system.
Best two stupidest lines win a 20pack from Jewelboxing- so you can make a great looking send-off portfolio or reel and get the heck out of that agency. ;)
When Cole, Russel & Pryce in Stockholm sent out their (e)mailers to advertise themselves and their new website, they probably didn't expect their own clients would have a cow over their creative ideas.
The campaign - perhaps a homage to the National Lampoons "If You Don't Buy This Magazine We'll Kill This Dog" cover - consisted of emailalerts at first, depicting this adorable little lamb, asking people to visit CR&P's homepage "for the sake of the lamb".....
A new Volvo ad , a "documentary" (rather, a mockumentary), tells about the "mystery of Dalarö" where 32 families bought the same model car, a Volvo S40, on the very same day. The mocumentary ad can be viewed here, and in cinemas in the UK.
Now the site of Carlos Soto, the "director" of the mocumentary has a film where Carlos questions the authenticity of the Dalarö-mystery.
"I have posted a personal edit of the footage here. I point out inconsistencies that occurred to me while reviewing the footage, and show an accurate and impartial view of what I saw. The original edit tells what I thought was a genuine story, that I no longer do."
The kicker is, there is no Carlos Soto............
With the goal of supporting young creative talent in Canada, Coors Light and Ihaveanidea have launched a creative competition titled "Win the Coors Light Wall".
The challenge - if you are an advertising or design student, design a winning idea to be painted on the most prominent Coors Light mural in downtown Toronto, one of the largest in the city. At an astounding 7 stories high and 80 meters in width, The Coors Light Wall is the largest advertising prize in history.
To complement this prize, Coors Light will also fund two semesters of the winner's tuition in an advertising or related program at a Canadian college or university. Second prize will receive a new Apple iBook and third prize will receive an Apple iPod.
Another chance to show off your adgrunt skills, impress everyone with your ad trivia and win a 20-pack of Jewelboxings!
>Ask a question about advertising that contains the answer to the previous question. Simple as that.
We'll pick a post each week for the next three weeks and send them a Jewelboxing 20pack free of charge. We started the thread with three entries as an example. Have at it!
Ready? Lets go - Here's how to do this:
After 189 complaints that the ads were demeaning to women and trivialized the war in Iraq, EasyJet "Weapons of Mass Distraction" ad gets the green light. From the ASA site:
"The advertisers stated that the advertisement was the latest of a series of topical, humorous and irreverent advertisements. The advertisers said they believed the advertisement was not sexist or demeaning to women; they asserted that they had received positive feedback from both male and female customers."
We must admit that when we first laid eyes on RatherGoods animated viking kittens we laughed our heads off.
Don't miss what Destinys child would sound and apparantly look like, if they were kittens, male and from northen England. Rathergood has ventured out into the world of advertising, and here are four VH1 commercials made by Joel Veich of Rathergood.com.
Fuse adcampaign struts out Sally Struthers, this time she's pleading with us to "save the music video".
Today when Mel Karmazin, head of Viacom, arrives at the MTV office in New York city, a giant Times Square billboard outside his office featuring Sally will be his view. A rival music channel ordered the poster installed overnight to 'tweak' what it called MTV's "lack of music" in it's programming.
Those who don't know their history are condemned to repeat it.
But repeat it this well? This is a carbon-copy of the idea - with herring instead of meatballs.
