Rachael Taylor spoofs Eva Herzigova's "Hello boys" with "G'day boys" in TBWA/London billboard

Eva's cleavage was revealed in 1994 for Wonderbra, and was recently voted the most iconic ad image of all time. The ad myth has it that this billboard caused several car accidents too, just like the Anna Nicole H&M lingerie ads did in Norway a year prior, but like most press myths this is most likely hype. This billboard was right outside my advertising school in Vauxhall (above D&AD) at the time, and the only one us students weren't trying to deface to make it better.

The Agency Pronunciation Guide

Sent to us today.

The Agency Pronunciation Guide.

"Dro-five-uh. Dro-five-uh. Dro-five-uh never returned my calls."

You don't say? Is it because taking an existing meme which parodies a unintentionally funny but started as serious youtube channel isn't very original?

I see you called it Volume 1, suggesting there might be a volume 2. Let's not and say we did. This is as DOA as another Shit Blank Says video.

Southern Comfort spoof ad budgiewalk raises money for children's hospital

Enamored with that Southern Comfort commercial where the man who has 'gotta be me' struts his stuff along the beach in a bathing suit and leather shoes, a a group of students from the University of Sheffield suddenly had the bright idea to do their own version when Pete sort of volunteered to recreate it, as long as some money got raised for the local children's hospital (and he got a bottle of Southern Comfort).

Amnesty.nl put faces behind bars - 4 weeks for freedom

Amnesty.nl are currently protesting the imprisonment of Nasrin Sotoudeh in Iran and Ales Bialiatski in Belarus. Their street guerilla action is to hang images of them, with hands, on all the bars they can find in Amsterdam. That is on gates around peoples houses, parks and train stations. Private property, city property, definitely not Amnesty or a media property. Yes, ad creep is a peeve of mine if it means the city has to clean it up. Inexpensive ingenuity when it comes to media is how Amnesty gets attention since their media budget isn't large.

SUPERBOWL SPOT: 2012 Honda CR-V: "Matthew's Day Off" Extended.

"Life moves pretty fast. If you don't stop and drive an affordable crossover sedan, you miss it."

Welcome to cynical Advertising 101. Pander to GEN X by stoking the nostalgia flames. Too bad the car doesn't fit the demographic. How is living a little akin to driving around in a glorified minivan?

Sometimes a guitar is just .. a copy.

Joelapompe has found a fashion-with-guitars layout that looks almost traced. Not a traced as Nazi meat though.
This looks like a case of 'demo love' that can easily turn into copyright infringement, as the example shown there with Dexim copying the work of photographer Jamie Nelson. Digital layouts have a lot to do with the uptick of this sort of thing.

Models in window, New York - one can practically hear them shout "Egoiste!"

The image that inspired Jean-Paul Goude to create the famous Égoïste ad? Perhaps, perhaps not, and we'll never know. Either way, you must admit the photo Models in Window, New York, 1960 spotted in an old Vogue magazine is fan-ta-stic!
