Rethink Vancouver created this little "performance art" stunt for Stihl professional chainsaws:
First they put a coupon and an actual chainsaw on a billboard.

After a few of weeks a guy showed up one morning, cut out the giant coupon with the chainsaw, and left with it. The board then stayed up with a big hole in it.

Commercials: 

I asked which one you though would win, Gorilla or Halo?

For the first time in Cannes History, there's two winners that got the Grand Prix in the film category, Cadbury's "Gorilla" by Fallon, London, and Xbox Halo 3's "Believe" by T.A.G./McCann Worldgroup, San Francisco.

The Titanium Grand Prix went to Uniqlo's "Uniqlock" from Projector Tokyo.

Will Mortierbrigades campaign ”Black boy wanting water” for Studio Brussels get the Titanium? Or Times of India ”Lead India” from JWT? Or is the HBO Voyeur Campaign set for yet another lion? Will Projectors campaign ”Uniqlock” for Uniqlo get it? Saturday night, we'll know. Meanwhile place your bets people. I'm off to celebrate midsummer.

Quite possibly, the most insane Craigslist ad ever. Copy writer - marketing materials - $18/hour

The twist: while you are writing copy you will also fill the role of security guard, working 6:30 p.m. to 10:30 p.m. Monday through Thursday. We will buy your uniform. You won’t carry a gun. Applicants must be able to pass a drug screen as well as a criminal background check. The security guard spends most of the shift seated at the reception desk, and there will be very minimal security duties. Practically the entire shift you will be able to focus on writing copy – you’ll just happen to be wearing a uniform.

Yep, we are stretched thin. Good thing there's no gun, for that salary the copywriter might end up shooting themselves. Hat tip Caffeinated
