Since arabic reads from right to left... wouldn't the image on the right be read first?

What's the controversial bit? I guess I don't get it?

even odder than that they can steal our number and thus our life is that we willingly give our life away to whatever credit company offers us a free t shirt.

Wow, shameless. Absolutely shameless. My partner says we should revoke the term "writer" and just use regurgitator. I think he's right.

Even on youtube, they are calling them out.

Accountability is coming to this industry, whether we like it or not.

is this some kind of alternate reality game? the yourmediacoverage website is so horrible, not to mentiom the work for pop secret, I almost wonder if some fans invented an ad agency along with made up work for clients they didn't have? it all seems so horrible to be true. On the yourmediacoverage site there are some "yaris" spec spots that are just too awful. Not funny awful where it goes back around to being good. just plain old applebee's style awful.

Personally this kinda shit pisses me off and should piss off any consumer who accidentally clicks on it.

#1) spaced invaders played better since almost thirty years ago. Want power ups? Galaga, twenty five years ago. As a game, it's "eh".

#2) As a brand experience, it's an F. It has almost nothing to do with baskin robbins, it doesn't make me like baskin robbins, the "power ups" of the drinks make no sense (put tires, cigarettes, bananas, cologne, anything in it's place, doesn't effect the game idea at all)

#3) the billboards between levels are lame and boring

that being said I like what they did where it gets you to the site and there is a call to action on the side and all of that. But can't video games be given the same amount of conceptual thought that goes into traditional advertising? Let's see some ideas.

Eh?

This reminds me of that old joke you see sometimes where it's like, they show a political commercial and it has "keep ojn rockin in the free world" playing and he's kissing babies, and it's "Vote McNamara". then they take the same footage and run it at 1/3rd speed and put an ominous VO and creepy music and it's "MCNAMARA. DO YOU TRUST HIM WITH YOUR BABIES?"

Even if you put sanguine music and reminiscence, it's still a product that's so basic that half it's name is on elemental tables...it's barely even a product, it's an over hyped ingredient!

All I see is some fabulous couture?

How deep can you be while you're being infinitely shallow? Gorgeous can.

adverlicious has in interesting concept, i dig that, but what is your criterion for what you post? It doesn't seem very curated.
