Ad for Totino's Pizza, and It's So, So, So Weird

There's literally nothing better than pizza. So, it stands to reason pizza brands shouldn't really need to advertise. But if you're a brand trying to rise to the upper crust of pie purveyors, you might as well go super weird. Totino's just teamed up with Tim & Eric (aka, Tim Heidecker and Eric Wareheim) and released "Pizza Freaks Unite," which is arguably the weirdest ad for pizza since Pizza Hut Japan's "Pizza Cats."

Welcome to transparent banking

Love this ad.

A Swedish subway ad got a lot of attention earlier this year by showing a woman's hair blowing beautifully in the wind whenever a train arrived. And now it has inspired another attention-grabbing display. Since there's not much to it beyond the reveal of this new digital ad, also from Sweden, I'll spare you any spoilers. VIA The original:

Online Clock's Top 10 One-Person Start-Ups

Many successful businesses started with just one person who had a vision and the technical skills to deliver it to the world. Popular new sites like Techmeme, Newsblur, Instapaper and Duckduckgo started out this way which makes the costs of operating much more bearable in the beginning. Even some of the largest companies in the world like eBay and Amazon began with one tech-savvy founder. Jeff Bezos, the founder of Amazon, was a computer engineer who decided to leave Wall Street to start an online book store out of his garage. Amazon is now the largest online retailer in the world with a revenue of $74.45 billion in 2013. Check out OnlineClock.net.

FIRST PERSON LOVER AVATARS ON RUNWAY IN BJÖRN BORG SHOW @FASHION WEEK STOCKHOLM

In impressive caves on an island in Stockholm, Swedish Fashion Brand Björn Borg, in collaboration with Creative Show Director Bea Åkerlund, treated the Fashion Week audience to an extravagant game-inspired runway show. Celebrating individuality, love and fashion in a digital era, the show served as a teaser for the Björn Borg ”First Person Lover” (not shooter!) computer game, releasing worldwide in January 2015 together with the brand’s SS15 collection.

Around 400 gathered to enjoy the brand’s first show on their home market in six years. Eurovision Song contest winner Conchita Wurst flew in to Stockholm to see the show, wearing a custom made Björn Borg body as she entered the show arena.

The Björn Borg SS15 show and collection were inspired by fictional worlds where sport and fashion intertwine in a confident and edgy, yet playful, way. Creative Show Director Bea Åkerlund had First Person Lover inspired projections as a backdrop and all models were wearing masks looking like the avatars of the upcoming game.

“Gaming and digital animation has a great impact on fashion today and we wanted to pick up on this in the collection and show. Bea Åkerlund has caught the idea of our game, to create some more love in the world, in a fantastic way. We are really exited to show a teaser of the collection and the game to the fashion world” said Björn Borg Head of Design James Lee.

The Björn Borg First Person Lover computer game will launch in January 2015 along with the Björn Borg Spring-Summer 2015 collection. Shop Björn Borg at http://www.bjornborg.com
