Gunniess "good times" viral ad

Guinness Good Times "share one with a friend" orgy ad is not a real ad.

While not everything in black and white makes sense - that this ad is fake fake not paid for by Guiness is dead obvious on first viewing.

Classic fitness center demonstrating the value of fitness. Yup. At least it isn't obvious.


Renault Grand Scenic - Picknick / Beach - print, Brazil

While the kaleidoscope style is neat, I can't help but feel these ads are very "un-Renault". That the Renault Grand Scenic is spacious comes across loud and clear though. From Neogama/BBH, São Paulo.

You can also download and print cards from the Sterlingcooperadagency.com site, as if anyone would want to waste their time with that when you can't enter your own name and title. I want to be "Åsk Wäppling Chief Muse" please.


Bayer's Bepanthen first aid cream "burning babies" ads are fake fake fake. Happy now JWT?

Last weeks "duh, obviously fake" ads for Bayer's Bepanthen first aid cream have been officially named fakes by JWT who've even released an official statement about them - as if ads depicting parents roasting their babies over fire, with blowtorches or burning a la marshmallows on a stick would


Vimochan Development Society - Help Her! - ambient, India

Headline: HELP HER! Remove the rope.

Body copy: Each day, some twenty Indian women are tortured, stabbed, hung or burned.

You can help, by speaking out against abuse when you encounter it.

IKEA 'refresh range' - Small Change Big Difference - installation, Australia

Host, Sydney Australia says:

This campaign was created to promote IKEA’s refresh and redecorate range, which helps people achieve the look they want for their home with simple, quick, affordable changes. The objective for the campaign was to demonstrate that is it easy and affordable to make your home feel fresh and rejuvenated. We wanted to inspire them with what is possible. Putting this through the filter of demonstrating that IKEA understands real life at home the campaign proposition developed was – Change a lot for a little. The creative idea was Small Change, Big Difference. The idea that you don’t have to do or spend a lot to make a big difference to the way your home looks and feels.
This idea was manifested in an integrated campaign.
• EXPERIENCE THE DIFFERENCE: a live installation in Sydney, Perth and Brisbane that changed daily to show how new cushions, lighting, blankets and rugs can completely transform a room, even when the furniture remained the same. The change was shown each day at the campaign microsite.
• WIN THE DIFFERENCE: A competition which could be entered via SMS or at the campaign site enabling people to win the makeover each day, with the entire room contents available at the end of each week in each state.
• DO IT YOURSELF: daily press ads and radio spots with tips to inspire people about how easy and affordable it is to make changes themselves

Coca-Cola countdowns to the Olympics in this rah-rah ad created by Red Lounge, Shanghai directed by Psyop and produced by Stink. Kudos to Massivemusic for the score.


GE Write-on Refrigerator - Beer, Pasta, Cake, Meatballs - print, Brazil

Neogama/BBH, São Paulo, Brazil shows us the ultimate fridge for those who like to express themselves - you write straight on it. Personally, I hate to see fridges and want them hiding behind kitchen cabinet doors instead.

The street art / mural style reminds me of the Red Cross vs AIDES badlanders. Execution only, of course.


ADESF Institutional Stop Smoking now - The Future "live to see it" - print, Brazil

"In 2066, Bin Laden will be caught.
Live to see it. Quit smoking now."

A new angle on the stop smoking ad scene? Instead of (trying to) scare the bejesus out of folks, Neogama/BBH,'s & client ADESF's reason to quit smoking now is that you'll otherwise miss all sorts of interesting future developments. Like Bin Laden finally being caught, temperatures rising to the point of spawning nudist cities and driving your car on top of the stranded cars of the standstill traffic jam in 2048.
