Good Things Come to Those Who WHITE
A pint of the black stuff becomes a pint of the white stuff with the launch of a creamier new version: "Guinness White".
Guinness is made from the same raw ingredients as regular Guinness Draught - hops, barley, water and yeast, but the barley is frozen instead of roasted, which provides the white colour.

I have to admit, this April Fools made me shriek in horror/delight (not even sure actually, I know I'd try it!) so they had me for a nano-second there, scaring the Guinness-purist in me and delighting my try-anything-new side.
Very cute. Announced at facebook, which I'm so not going to link to because, pshaw, pfft, facebook, how lame.
The joke however, fun-niiii.

Saatchi & Saatchi South Africa demonstrate how powerful Osrams really powerful lightbulbs are. Answer, very powerful. This "forest" one is the creepiest looking but the kid in school (inside) is - in my humble opinion of course - the simplest execution of the idea. I'm not sure I want my lightbulbs this powerful.

RC SCORPION remote control cars are tougher than those other remote controlled wimpy toys, and this is how Ogilvy London decided to communicate that.
If you don't want a remote controlled car, head over to Roadkilltoys for your very own squished raccoon.

Way back in the year 2000 you could win a signed copy of the Luke Sullivan book just by the effort of signing up. HaHaSoup won that book (and I bet he still has it, don't you HahaSoup?).

Well, here's your chance again - since Luke Sullivan has come out with another edition of his widely popular "Hey Whipple, Squeeze This" book which includes new chapters addressing the galloping development of the web and the myriad of new media areas, we thought we'd throw another competition. Rules inside.

I'm a sucker for any ad that uses the media it runs in to really drive their point home, aren't you? I'm especially keen on newspaper ads that do this, I've tried using those little holes at the bottom of the page in some ad ideas but I'm afraid I had boring clients. This is anything but boring though. Another good execution inside.

During freedom week these Amnesty International pens ran as inserts in magazines. Once you removed the pen it revealed a message "use your freedom to free others". The pen was a specially made floaty pen - normally used to strip babes of their bikinis, you know the kind - and as you wrote the bars around the prisoner would slide away. Thus the action of your writing frees him.

Q&A with PandaPanther who just completed work on the MTV Tr3s Top Twenty count. By the way PandaPanther just signed to Blacklist’s roster in January of 2008.

What was the project brief?
Our task was to develop an open and interiors for MTV Tr3s' Top 20 countdown show. the brief was very open. we presented them with several ideas and they gravitated towards a live action based approach. they liked our treatment so much, that they asked us to create individual vignettes for each countdown number.
