A peek inside Nationwide's K-Fed Super Bowl Spot

Apparently the the National Restaurant Association is worried that Nationwide's Super Bowl spot featuring Kevin Federline will be insulting to those who work in the restaurant industry. A letter was sent stating "We hope that these reports are inaccurate and that Nationwide will not be airing such an ad that would give the impression that working in a restaurant is demeaning and unpleasant. An ad such as this would be a strong and a direct insult to the 12.8 million Americans who work in the restaurant industry." Right, because everyone knows those McD's workers are lovin' it. ;)

All you closet KFed fans, check out behind-the-scenes footage of KFed. on the mic for Nationwide's Super Bowl commercial.

Read on for a Q&A with Federline and Steven Schreibman, VP of Advertising and Brand Management at Nationwide.


Groundhog searches for Shadow in online campaign

Ripple Effects Interactive and Red Tettemer launched GroundhogCrossing.com on behalf of the Pennsylvania Tourism Office. The online campaign intended to generate some buzz around one of Pennsylvania's oldest and most revered holidays, Groundhog Day (Friday, February 2nd, 2007).

The premise is that the Groundhog's counterpart, the Shadow, has fled Punxsutawney, overwhelmed with the pressure that 96 out of the last 120 years, the Shadow has been the cause of another six weeks of winter. Missing his lifelong friend, the Groundhog makes a literal cross-country trek to recover the Shadow and return to Pennsylvania in time for Groundhog Day 2007.
