ESPN/NASCAR – The Nationwide Series - Dominoes (2010) :30 (USA)

"Dominoes," the first spot in ESPN's new campaign for the NASCAR Nationwide Series, conveys the fast and unpredictable action of the series--where up-and-comers get a shot at beating seasoned drivers. Using the tagline IT'S ANYONE'S RACE, the spot tells the story of a driver who manages to sneak his way to the front of the pack when a fight for the lead turns into a massive pile-up. Through a combination of CGI animation and cutting edge facial capture technology, Zoic and agency Wieden + Kennedy were able to create a hyper-real environment containing expressive human characters. With the hard driving soundtrack of Metallica's "Master of Puppets," "Dominoes" captures the intensity of NASCAR and showcases the fine line between winning and losing.

Really? Seriously? Who thought this was a good idea? Disney, have you checked yourselves lately? It was one thing when Miley Cyrus began working the pole, but as BoingBoing and half the internet points out: "related images basically present these kids" - who are only 9 years old - "as cute li'l whores". Could we not go there, please? A "lingerie line for children"? Can't type anymore, my jaw has dropped and crushed my keyboard äöläökef'ir våeeeeeeeeek.

Raging Grannies sing that CBS stands for Corporate Bull Shit. They have a point.

The Raging Grannies tear CBS a new one because of their choice to air the Tim Tebow anti-abortion ad, and stating that "willing to air more advocacy ads" - just as long as its not anything for a a gay dating site. To the tune of Three Blind Mice the grannies croon "CBS - Corporate Bulls Shit , they won't take ads from Moveon or The light , but take three million from right-to-life, they're hypocrites that won't give a voice to womens choice"

You tell 'em grannies!

The MoveOn stuff was back in 2004, see moveon goes to the superbowl and CBS says nope.

* For Swedes or those who can read it by the way, I've posted an article on Newsmill about this.
