Adidas - Impossible Jerseys - print, China

As the text on this image explains, the impossible Jerseys were given away with magazines in Hong kong an idea conceived by TBWA\TEQUILA\ Hong Kong:

In late 2007, Adidas briefed TBWA/TEQUILA Hong Kong to excite football fans about the new collection of 2008 adidas Federation Jerseys.
So we decided to recreate autographed jerseys, fold them and place them as cover inserts into Hong Kong’s number one selling youth magazine, MILK.
So overnight, stacks of adidas Federation Jerseys appeared on Hong Kong’s newsstands.
Fans would find France, Argentina, Germany and Spain and every single one was autographed.
It was the first time any magazine had been used to sell apparel in this way.

Swedish cartoons become stamps in conjunction with Comic-Con at Bokmässan

Every year there's a book-trade fair (or Book-con if you will) in Gothenburg, Sweden. This year the Swedish post are launching stamps with Swedish cartoon characters on them in conjunction with the trade fair.

Eight toons were honored with their own stamps and Miami ad agency conceived of non traditional ad channels to get the word out. Since the client is the Swedish post, street arting the mailboxes with the characters was a given. Aside from invading mailboxes a la street-art, the toons were also spotted running off the funny pages and people wearing sandwich-board stamps patrolled the city of Gothenburg. (inside)
