Audi Italia "One Million Facebook Likes" (2014) :30 (Italy)

Audi Italia racked up one million Facebook likes without ever posting a photo of a single kitten. To celebrate they created this little video. Thankfully, it stars a kitten as well as an Audi R8 V10. Can I have both?

Carolina Melis directed and designed this intriguing piece for Fendi. Far from showing the usual bored looking models strutting up and down the catwalk, this video uses geometric shapes and colors to make the purses and wallets pop.

Audi A3 Sportback “Welcome tomorrow” (2014) :45 (Italy)

Audi gets shows off its techy side using projecting mapping in this DDB Verba Milan spot. I wish I had 4G and wifi in my car, man! Actually, I wish I had a projection mapper, too. That'd be great at all my hipster-themed parties.

Donnamag: SOS PMS - the app for men (2014) :30 (Italy)

The animations tell us that throughout history, it was PMSing women that caused all the trouble. Apple in the garden of Eden? Because PMS. Trojan horse? Because PMS. "Let them eat cake"? Because PMS.

To sell the unique features of a chamomile relaxing tea DLV BBDO Rome shows us the site of a dramatic toy car accident. The nutcrackers have been toppled over, the toys are strewn about the room and the driver, oh the poor driver, is snoring on the soft carpet.

Here's a responsible drinking campaign from Heineken from Publicis Milan, starring DJ Armin Van Buuren. The idea was simple-- if the DJ's play banging music, people will drink slower and dance more.

Gioni's Revenge - Condiments spanking women / Ketchup spanking - (2013) print (Italy)

Honestly now? I'm not sure exactly where these ads ran (or even if) but alch1m1a have done weird things before. Still "Don’t Spank His Bottom Again" advertising brown sauce and "Did You Spank His Mom’s Bottom" for ketchup? Worst... "Learn To Squeeze Her" for salad dressing. I lost my appetite.

Variér - Panda & Leopard / Never too early to save your back - print, Italy

The not so fantastic photoshopped tattoos here depict endangered species on the backs of a man and a woman, with the line: "It's never too early to save your back". The product, chairs that help you hold a better posture, is hidden away all Cannes-like in the corner.

It might work better in Italian, but seems a long walk for a ham sandwich here.

Benetton - Unhate - Kissing presidents, prime ministers and chancellors - (2011)

'What does 'unhate' mean? ' Un-hate. Stop hating, if you were hating. Unhate is a message that invites us to consider that hate and love are not as far away from each other as we think. Actually, the two opposing sentiments are often in a delicate and unstable balance. Our campaign promotes a shift in the balance.'
- Alessandro Benetton, Executive Vice President

See also the Unhate foundation while you scratch your head and wonder how this sells sweaters.

By the way, back in 2003 this street art showed Saddam and Bush kissing so I'll add unoriginal to that.
