Berthold's Grotesk Akzident for HP

HP's Imaging and Printing Group have made their first viral film about graphic designer and photographer twins fighting their printer and trashing their studio.

My partner Robin Garms (the Interactive Creative Director at Publicis Dialog in London) and I made this film as part of the HP DesignJet Z2100/Z3100 campaign - new large format printers for designers and photographers. The idea was to create two characters - Berthold and Max, one a designer, the other a photographer - who shared a studio and a intense obsession with accuracy and detail. We would then attribute an HP advertising campaign to them, make a site for their studio, write diaries, observations about life and abusive letters to Creative Review and Eye Magazine about the quality of their printing - the usual stuff. In the end we were asked to just make the film that would appear at the end of the campaign as a sort of sign off. And that is what you can see at the link. It was directed by Jeremie Rozan & Martial Schmeltz at Partizan.


Sony Bravia commercial brings up terrorist reminders?

Le sigh. According to Marketing Week the new "Paint" ad for Sony Bravia has received complaints from TV viewers for reminding them of the 2001 attacks on the World Trade Center.

Sony and Fallon have stressed that the housing estate was empty and scheduled for demolition, while the paint used was non-toxic and a team of 60 people spent five days cleaning up the site after the shoot.

An Advertising Standards Authority spokeswoman confirms the regulator has received at least two complaints from viewers who found the ad disturbing and felt that it was inappropriate "in today's climate of terror." The ASA is considering whether to launch an investigation.


And the "Balls" ad spoofs keep bouncing in

Following in the footsteps of Tango's Balls spoof back in May, London lingerie company Myla has created their own spoof on the Sony Bravia "Balls" spot. They have even set up their own spoof site, pleasure like no other with behind the scenes footage. Unlike the original, the Spheres were added using CGI.

I'd hate to see what sex toy they use to spoof the latest Sony Bravia Paint spot. ;)

Bishops Finger ad deemed too raunchy

A woman in a revealing mediaeval frock sits perched atop a hay bale, declaring "I love a good session on the Bishop's Finger". , and honestly now who doesn't? I know I love a good round of the Bishop's finger!

Sadly, the ASA didn't like the pun and thought that the womans suggestive pose linked alcohol to seduction and sexual activity. But honestly now, with a name like that what is a decent ale to do but link to sex?

A Shepherd Neame spokesperson said today the ale's advertising campaign was designed to amuse, not offend.
