Oh hey, what do we have here - Warm wishes from Ad Land?
Adfreak points out : "'Warm Wishes From Ad Land' presents some choice anonymous comments left on ad blogs AgencySpy, Ads of the World and Campaign Brief. (None are from the Adland blog itself, or from AdFreak for that matter.) The potty-mouthed trolls spew syntactically daring slime of a frequently scatological nature in response to blog posts about new campaigns, executive hires and account moves. Deadpan recitations of the rants are accompanied by jolly seasonal graphics and a tinny version of 'We Wish You a Merry Christmas.'"
Delta airlines pulled their ads from the Daily Show due to the skit called :"The Battle for the War on Women". It seems to me that Delta are punishing Stewart for being funny, and standing up for women at the same time. God forbid. God? Well, actually, it's the Catholic League for Civil and Religious Rights - their blog is here - a conservative group that has waged a weeks-long campaign pressuring Stewart to apologize for the skit. In turn they pressured Delta and other Comedy Central advertisers to pull their Daily Show ads.
We thank you for all you did for us, Mr. Jobs. From the Mac to Pixar, you inspired us and gave us the tools to find our own. You powered our G4s while we worked late into the night on comps. The gentle glow of the apple logo was like our nightlight as we crafted copy into the wee hours. Your appreciation for beautiful and simple design was our muse. You drove us. Challenged us. And left a indelible mark. Thank you. You shall be missed.
The Consumerist has noted a new product placement for Zookeper inserted into reruns of "how I met your mother". We've discussed Dynamic Product Placement on Adland before, and L-VIS (Live Video Insertion System) done by players such as PVI Virtual Media Services in live sports events. Even movies have it, which can cause issues like when Sony was sued by Super Sign for altering the billboards in Times Square.
I've long had this idea that globetrotters, and international people make the smartest advertising people as we are used to "hacking culture". I meet Jason Schragger who fulfills this idea to perfection with his history. Born in Bulawayo, Zimbabwe of all places, he leaves for Australia in the early 80s where he started his ad career before BBH dragged him to Singapore. He moved to Amsterdam in 2003, went with MINI to Berlin for a bit, and is now back in Amsterdam as the International Creative Director for BSUR. With us at the table is also Joost Perik, the Executive Creative Director of BSUR.
Returning from the 2011 Cannes Lions festival - or as I like to call it, the advertising olympics - I feel as if my brain has been blown so many times, it entered a blank space which was then reprogrammed by everyone I spoke to. Brace yourselves, the word "I" is going to be used so much here I'm boring myself already.
So, while I thought it was rather obvious that this wasn't signed off by a client in "file under not surprised", and DMVawter posted "Cannes Lions pedophilia ad: Demand a retraction or demand a refund." ... we're not quite done with this one yet. Lets poke at it with this here stick one more time.
The credits for the KIA ad according to this years Cannes Lions fest:
Advertising Agency: MOMA PROPAGANDA Sao Paulo, BRAZIL
Chief Creative Officer: Rodolfo Sampaio
Executive Creative Director: Rodolfo Sampaio
Creative Director: Rodolfo Sampaio
"My diaper is full. Full of chic" - will the fashion diaper fad please the Cannes jury, even if the trend is three years late overseas? We've seen fashion diaper ads before over here, but then again, they scored well in Cannes so maybe we ain't tired of this yet.
You remember when Adland was banned from Google adsense for doing what we do - that is show ads, right? It was written up in Dagens Media in Sweden, as well as a few other adblogs, like Adscam who humorously points out that other ad blogs have 'put millions in his Swiss bank account by featuring tits and arse in every post, even if it’s about deep sea oil rigs'.
A Google representative phoned me up to sort out the issue, "I can un-ban your account, but you will have to follow the Google adsense guidelines in the future, of course". I explained to him that Adland writes about advertising, the business that promoted advertising week with a cleavage shot and resorts to using naked bosoms as attention grabbers for an advertising show in Slovenia. "There will be boobage eventually, it is advertising, in fact there will be just as much sexism and skin as you can find in banner campaigns that run on Google adsense" I said. (for example - see the evolution of Evony ads which actually ran on adland in the google adsense space) Advertising, like many other businesses, is pretty sexist in itself, Neil French is one of the most famous creatives in advertising (he has done great work, mind you). And advertising images are full of stereotypes that will offend men, women, and your little dog too - what one target group finds humorous, another finds offensive. In order to discuss these ads, we need to see them.
