A great, simple, text message insight: you’re not a hippie if you use solar energy, you just like saving money.

And relatable, human executions.

“From America’s greatest beardsman, to Morgan Spurlock’s own mustache, producers Will Arnett, Jason Bateman and Ben Silverman bring us a hilarious look at men’s identity in the 21st century. Models, actors, experts and comedians weigh in on what it is to be a man in a world where the definition of masculinity has become as diverse as a hipster’s facial hair in Williamsburg. The hilarious follicles of men’s idiosyncratic grooming habits are thoroughly combed over as men finally take a long hard look in the mirror.”

Absolutely mantastic.

This is just a tribute.

This man was a hero and pioneer to his sport. If you don’t know him, Google him now. Then watch this movie.

Pavlov train’s the workplace

Every Tuesday, I get a reminder from my friends in accounting about filling out my timesheet. And again Wednesday. Once more Thursday. You get the point…

So, like so many social media experiments, why not try making it “fun”? I know, it seems hypocritical to have to incentivize your employees to get themselves paid, but a problem is a problem, no matter how puzzling. So, for the cost of a few cases of beer, you can boost moral, reward your employees, and make accounting happy in the process (HR, not so much).

Well, JWT Brazil has done just that, unlocking free beer for employees who complete timesheets.

Whether at home or abroad, Domino’s is just owning the non-traditional ad space right now. In the Netherlands, to improve road safety, Domino‚Äôs introduced a human engine sound on their silent electrical scooters.

Great stuff.

BBDO Germany recreates the classic video game in a promotion for the new Smart eBall. They picked the perfect stage, the biggest motor show in the world, the IAA in Frankfurt.

Tupac at Coachella

Posted in New Technology on April 17, 2012 by Andrew Woodruff

On the last night of Coachella, Tupac joined Snoop and Dre on stage for one final performance. A life-size hologram projected him in full motion, complete with lyrics that synched with his movement. “Performed” Hail Mary and 2 of Amerikaz Most Wanted. Amazing use of technology, or a little too much? Would have been particularly eerie for Snoop, who performed Amerikaz Most Wanted with Pac live pack in the day.

More awesome ESPN work

A friend of mine applied to be a planner with ESPN’s agency, but eventually had to concede and admit that he didn’t know enough about sports. And he knows a LOT about sports.

McDonalds – Doin’ It Again

McDonalds can’t get get enough of cool, unique OOH. Nice to see the monotony of standard 14×48 billboards broken up.
