They're back! To celebrate the start of Star Wars Weekend at Disneyland, a new set of Star Wars/Disney mash-up images have just been released. These print ads, by Disney's Yellow Shoes Creative Group, brings the magic of Disney together with the excitement of Star Wars. Make sure to watch the hilarious video, below, that features Darth Vader in a brainstorming session. Also,…
Minimalism goes a long way. In this new series of Lego ads by German advertising agency Jung von Matt, we see simplistic representations of some of the most well-known cartoon characters. The Hamburg-based company's ad campaign titled Imagine features tiny towers of colored Lego blocks in each print. It seems abstract, but undeniably accurate in its color-blocking and size ratio in…
If there's one thing the Internet loves, it's Star Wars. That's why, when executed well, incorporating its characters into ads or photo shoots makes a great deal of sense. For its 2011 Fall/Winter Originals Collection, Adidas just released another collaborative project with the successful franchise. This time, they… Continue
Now here's some hilarious (and a bit risqué) PSAs coming out for MTV by ad agency Grey. The right on point tagline states, "Sex is no accident. Always use a condom." Way to go MTV for not preaching to your audience but instead using some clever illustrations to deliver the "safe sex" message.
Simple idea, wonderful execution. As one of the world's largest manufacturers of office supplies, Faber-Castell makes products of the highest quality for everyone from young children to professional artists. To promote their colored pencils, they made these four, clever print ads with the tagline: “True Colours. Faber-Castell.”
This is one of the most epic ads I've ever seen. Crush partnered with Sons and Daughters to create a lavish journey though Japan’s rich cultural heritage that reveals the brewing process behind Sapporo beer. Co-directed by Mark Zibert (Sons and Daughters) and Gary Thomas… Continue
What better equalizer is there than sports? And what sport unifies the world more than football (or what Americans call soccer)? Puma has just put out this fantastic video as a lead up to the South Africa World Cup. It's shot on location in Angola, Ghana and The Ivory Coast and soundtracked by ‘Going On’ by Gnarls Barkley.
"A celebration of true football. For Africa. For Football. For the insane love of the game we possess that unites us beyond borders.… Continue
What clever ads for an open-air music festival! Guess wild animals have a hard time listening to loud music. By ad agency, BBDO Berlin, Rock Im Wald translates to Rock in the Woods (or Forest). The music festival is held in Northeim, Germany.
You may think that zoos have an advantage over regular advertisers. Sure they've got adorable animals to work with but how do they compete with theme parks for our time? Just ask the creative minds behind these advertisements. Whether they're shocking us with wrapped buses or making us laugh with car stickers, they all serve to remind us that our friendly neighbors are just waiting for a…
Now this is one creative idea! Using the same, minimal graphic elements as you'd see in the classic Monopoly game, McDonald's put up familiar signage and surprised commuters with free parking in lots across Western Canada. Why? To remind people that the Monopoly game is back at McD's.
Got to love the sign, "You've Just Landed on Free Parking" How awesome would it be to see that?
Horror Meets Kids Lit The Melbourne Writer's Festival asked the JWT agency in Melbourne, Australia to create these ads for their annual literary festival. What better way to show "how stories meet" than with these super creative ads? I love how there's a comedic twist to each "story." Poor Mickey, someone get him out!
New ads for Louis Vuitton and Madonna just surfaced that's taking Photoshop to the extreme. It's for LV's Fall/Winter 2009 campaign. Though we love the dramatic colors, we can't help but think that everything looks too overdone. You have to wonder if they're trying to knock down a few decades on Madonna.…
Four new quirky Comcast commercials just came out. This will probably get really annoying the second or third time you hear it but for now..enjoy, it's cool! Once you watch one, you'll want to watch all four. First one is the best, though.… Continue
PETA wants Ben & Jerry’s to use human milk in their ice cream instead of cow’s milk.
I kid you not. They sent a letter to Ben Cohen and Jerry Greenfield, cofounders of Ben & Jerry’s Homemade Inc., urging them to replace cow’s milk they use in their ice cream products with human breast milk.
So Alice's last post reminded me about the recent controversy surrounding Ryan McGinley's ads for Wrangler.
(RADAR) Ryan McGinley, the by some measures overrated photographer of nubile young playthings, has gone and shot an ad campaign for Wrangler, the denim of choice for Americans afraid of anything bespeaking style or originality when it comes… Continue
