Snickers - Shark, Lion, Bear - print, USA

TBWA New York alerts us to this campaign being a fake

Their exact words: "not approved by the client and have been distributed without permission"

Snickers had nothing to do with these ads created by a young green team armed with photoshop.

Art Director Matthew Woodhams-Roberts and Copywriter Nick Terzis at TBWA\Chiat\Day dug around Corbis images until they came up with this for Snickers.


Museum of Natural History Stuttgart - Ostrich, Tapir, Duckbill - print, Germany

Moral of the ad: if this is how you think it worked, you should get some facts at a museum.


Vanish - the Bib tie - print, Brazil

Euro RSCG Worldwide São Paulo created this fathers day "bib tie" for Vanish. The idea being that you use this bib to protect your tie if mommy (who presumably does the laundry) hasn't heard about the products spot-busting abilities.
Course, vanish will only work on ties that can actually be machine washed in water which, lets see here now... Hmm..... *counts all ties in the closet* Exactly zero ties in this house can be. So while the idea is cute, it fails to talk to any owners of dry clean only ties which I've always assumed is everyone who ever owned a tie. But then, perhaps there are cheap nylon ties out there that can be machine washed? Does anyone know? Bueller?

Sirromet Wines - Paper bag, Glass, Age - print, Australia

Meet Sir Romet, the persian cat persona for Sirromet Wines. So ridiculously silly.


M&M + M = 3M (1+1 = 3?)

I would just like to point out that artist Nic Hess can be a pretty funny guy.


Radio: "radio advertising is a very grateful media"

Moi, Åsk Wäppling a.k.a Dabitch, was just speaking about advertising (what else?) on RixFM radio with Roger, Titti and Gert of Rix MorronZoo. Not the first time we've been on the radio mind you, we chatted for an hour on the advertising show a few years ago - but it is the first time in Swedish. Not sure I made as much sense as I wanted too, considering the early hour for me. Should've taken that coffee intravenously. I really wanted to play RACV Car Loans - Disclaimer Guy as en example of good radio advertising, but y'all can listen to that here.

Ett glatt hej till alla svenskar som kanske hittat hit efter att ha hört mig i morse. Välkomna till reklamfanatikerns sajt. :)

The Obama street art posse invades Denver

The Denver Egotist has gone around town photographing the political street art that's currently popping up all around Denver. "We’ll call them Obama’s posse." they say - a lot of distinctivly Shepard Fairey work is adorning the walls, as well as some fresh new things I've not seen before. Personally, I really dig the rainbow Lincoln Obama pictured here on the left.


Is this the work of SS+K the "non-traditional creative communications firm defined by a combustible mix of political consulting and high-level of creativity"? We know that Obama picked up GMMB & SS&K back in 2007 for creative work, so... it just might be?
