Saddleback Leather shows pirates how to counterfeit their bag.

Love this. Dave Munson, CEO of Saddleback Leather, waves a giant conceptual middle finger at the people ripping off his bags, by showing them the best way to copy his bags using lesser grade materials. In the process, he positions Saddleback as being the premium bag, and the cheapo reproductions as being just that.

Even more than that, he paints an accurate portrait of those counterfeiters: smarmy, unethical, and employing child labor.

Marijuana Marketing. Or as I call it: Marketing.

In a CNBC article entitled "Companies woo the weed crowd with artful, edgy ads" is trying to make this huge connection between the legalization of marijuana in Washington and Colorado, and a spate of ads featuring stoner humor, and "code words." Such ads and phrases like one above as well as from the Carl's Junior campaign seem to be a growing trend, the article points out. To which I say: No shit, Sherlock.

Panasonic wants to cut out the darkness.

Hard as it is to believe, nearly 1.3 billion people on this planet live without electricity. They have no choice but to use either fire or kerosense.

Panasonic wants to do something about that, with your help. By 2018 they plan on donating 100,000 solar lanterns to those places around the globe that so desperately need light. Cut Out The Darkness is a cool, if not slightly punny initiative to add some beauty to the process.

Booking.com "Epic booking" (2014) 1:00 ( The Netherlands)

Epic music, epic montages, nutty voice over. Very tongue and cheek and over the top, which I guess is what you need to do to set yourself apart from all the other travel sites out there.
