Can you guess where I am from?

This accent game is a fun little time-waster, even though to be honest - some peoples accents aren't that representative of the cities or countries that they are from. I would have done much better if there had been some Swedes, Finns, Danes and Dutch folk in here. My score - 55 points - can you beat it (without cheating? This game allows you to play again and does not randomize the people, sadly.) Watch out for that articulate brunette in the bottom row. ;) Try the accent game here.

Uhm. I only have one thing to say about this. OMG creepy. I don't think that was the reaction Y&R Thailand was going for.

Another version of that "24-hour tracking" stunt from Ogilvy & Mather, Beijing - previously they did a truck which was cute but only seen by fellow drivers. Now they did a DHL-dude with an online arrow on his back.

Pennies? Pennies? You can't pay with those here. Try OfficeMax.

I find it hilarious that a company (or rather, their ad agency The Escape Pod, Chicago I presume) has latched on to how impossible it is to use pennies for anything in the states and taken that to the ultimate extreme. They send a redheaded dude out to try and buy a decent chef-cooked meal paying only with pennies, and even a used car paying with only pennies. 2700 dollars worth of pennies. I love how the chef seems to grab his hair and start comparing the whole ordeal to him running a steak through a blender."The only reason a dollar is a dollar, is because it's worth a hundred pennies" replies our redheaded hero. Ah, that's so true - so those automatic toll-booths change machines should take pennies, right? Do they?
