Colossal Spark is a crowdsourcing Colossal Joke

Update - we've edited this article Friday August 29, see footnote.

Colossal Spark is a brand new crowdsourcing website for advertisers, and creatives alike. Now I know what you're thinking: Great, another exploitive site a la Victors and Spoils, where the partners make a boat load of money while enlisting thousands upon thousands of minions to work for free or next to free. I'll bet they're just waiting patiently to be bought out by a holding company, there by making even MORE money.

Usain Bolt delivers an anthemic monologue about being a rebel and trouble maker and getting what you want, while sitting in a hot tub surrounded by trophy women. Then, when the owner of the home goes after him, he runs away naked. Okay....

FEMA and Ad Council: Do you how to find your family?

Do you know where your family is in an emergency? Despite what the art direction might tell you, the answer is no. Phone service is generally out in emergency situations, so you can't really put a pin on it. Did no one at FEMA explain that to the art director?

Are you ready for an emergency? Most Americans aren't. The only thing that isn't ringing true to in this spot is that everyone is on their best behavior, using their indoor voices. If i lost my kid, I'd be screaming till I lost my voice.

What a downer.

This lovely bit of story telling is my favorite kind. It doesn't involve sex, so much as implied sex. Woman wakes up all bed headed and looking for more sexy time. Dude isn't there, so she slips on her shoes and dress and runs to his place.
