I’m interested in checking out the new film documentary titled, Art & Copy. It’s a behind the scenes look at the advertising industry from the perspective of a handful of the greatest creative pioneers whose ideas resulted in some of the most iconic advertisements… and who actually moved and inspired our culture with their work. Sure, it’s easy to hate advertising when you get pop-ups online or bombarded with television commercials that take up more time then the program you are actually watching… but the madness of a creative mind is intriguing and down right addictive… just ask anybody in the industry.
The following is a graphic public service film depicting the ravages of using cell phones while driving. Although created and aired only in the United Kingdom, it’s message is relevant everywhere. Surely this wont be aired in it’s entirety on US television due to the gruesome nature of the content but thanks to the internet it can still be viewed. Which begs the questions… Is this video appropriate? Is it shock for shock-value’s-sake or does it have the power to actually change behavior. You decide.
WARNING: The following video is extremely graphic and violent. Watch at your own discretion.
…make lemonade. Carpe Diem!
Promotional shirts are so predictable – starchy-thick Hanes shirt with awkwardly-long-sleeves and a crunchy, doomed-to-crack decal. But not the new one used to create buzz for the latest Resident Evil Wii game. Although traditional at first glace with it’s “Let Your Darkside Out” logo, once the shirt is pulled up over your face you are instantly transformed into a zombie (or a gory Mardi Gras bead-beggar)! Brilliant!
Proof that anything you say is cute as long as you have dimples…
This is real. Really telling. Really sad. Although I have to admit, I think the business-man-slipping-on-a-banana-peel logo is really awesome… so sue me!

To perk up your Monday…
EepyBird Production (the guys who started the Diet Coke & Mentos campaign) have now created The Sticky Note Experiments for OfficeMax to support their tagline “Life is beautiful. Work can be, too.” And I thought I was being creative when I temporarily hemmed my pants with binder clips!
The Sticky Note Experiments
I unfortunately can’t say that this is a mirror image of my work place but what I can say is that this type of thing happens in my head ALL THE TIME! (I just made sticky notes scary, didn’t I?)
BTW, ‘Post-Its’ sounds than “Sticky Note”.
Diesel XXX is throwing a massive 17-city party on Saturday, October 11th. But that’s not my point because well, who cares? What’s interesting is the short they created to promote it.
