Nice to see some truly classic print ads, if only their headlines weren't so vomitatingly pukable. "I have a headache, so I take Advil, so I can do yoga???" Just do the yoga, then you don't need Advil. "I'm sorry, but I can't rescue you from that burning house, I have a headache." This is giving me a headache, where's the advil?

Yes, Ed & Jasper made me a proud teacher by winning a Bronze Lion with this idea.

It's weird. The Master Kong brand produces a variety of food products from bottled water to noodles and cookies. Euro RSCG as well as Saatchi work for them. The mistery exec creative director Brad Russell does not exist, but the amount of lions on his cupboard suggest this viral was shot at, and thus probably by a "big" agency. The garden where the 'interview' takes place also looks quite Asian. The featured master Kong looks Thai as do his middle names. The news reader guy looks very, very similar to the guy in the yoga session towards the end of the clip (just before the gorilla). The you tube video is posted by an Andy W Kramer. There is an Andrew W Kramer on facebook with 0 friends (start twilight zone music).

That's what I can deduct so far. So my bet would be EURO, Saatchi, or Ogilvy either in Bangkok, Hong Kong or KL. I love these kind of puzzles on a Friday afternoon.

Beard one is cool. The staple in hand we saw back in 1997 or 8 for hansaplast by Portuguese at director Ricardo Adolfo.

Just saw that somebody already crapped, packled and snotted over the rice krispies

Hey Jolly Green Giant, sit down!

Funny fact.

Adam from Discovery Channel's Mythbusters starred as a shop clerk in one of the Mr. Whipple commercials way back when.

I loved "the circulation of clips during friends and colleagues". A typical example of the beautiful language known as Gerglish :)

If it is not only see-through, but also walk-through, then I like it. A truly interactive outdoor ad.
